The Pulse
Volume 1, No. 7 - October 2010
  Welcome to The Pulse!

The leaves are changing color and the temperature is dropping. Yes, the autumn season is already here! Meanwhile the conclusion of the Atlantic hurricane season is steadily approaching -- November 30. Until then, all coastal U.S. residents should remain vigilant of the threat posed by severe windstorms even as the air temperature cools. The Florida Department of Financial Services continues to urge small business owners to be prepared for the possibility of any disaster by reviewing their current plans. We hope you never encounter a disaster, but if you do, the information in our disaster preparedness site can help you or your customers.

Some things in life are certain, like the seasons changing, yet some things remain uncertain. While we still do not know how the health reform implementation will affect health agents, we continue to support the agent's important role. Read more about what recently happened in Florida on this in News You Can Use.

Don't miss all we packed into this issue, particularly things to keep you in the know and compliance matters. We also continue our series on the basics of operating various agencies. This time around: opening a bail bond agency.
