There's no doubt that the Life Insurance Movement was a huge success.
We had close to 160 blogs taking part and you can still see the #LifeAWARE hashtag still active on Twitter. Amazing stuff!
But as I stated before, the movement is for nothing if people don't take action and get the life insurance they need.
Plain and simple.
Yes, I love dancing to Usher but my main goal is to make sure that your family gets right amount of life insurance.
Jason Larkins from the blog WorkSaveLive.com messaged me a few days after the movement to share a horrific story of someone close to him. A mom and her young baby were both lost due to complications in the pregnancy.
Having 3 sons, this story saddens me to no end. I couldn't even fathom the thought of losing my wife and my child at the same time. How horrible.
To compound the problem, the 29 year-old soon to be mom of two did not have any life insurance. Now the husband is left emotionally and financially broken. Jason and others have come to his side to try and raise money to help out.
The sad lesson to be learned is that the financial strain could have been avoided. I don't want to beat it into the ground, but life insurance is cheap and simple. Don't let any more time get in the way of taking care of your family.

At the bottom of the post, you will see a PayPal button if you decide you want to help out the family.
Stop procrastinating. Go out and get life insurance.
