*We received this email on February 5, 2021:

I started my research with the first choice BeYogi.  After days of research they had the best price available for insurance on all my businesses and the BEST customer service.  Thanks for the help. I appreciate it.

We receive no compensation of any sort from insurance providers or any other organizations. We simply want to support teachers and trainers in having more time and being more prepared to do their best work, and so we share what we learn.
