Choose Your Own Adventure With Guest Lester Morales

Try And Stop Me

"Take the next step or choose to let it cripple you." The wise words from the incredibly impactful man himself, Lester Morales is our next guest.   Lester is no newbie to the game of a go-getter. After many years as a super successful sales leader, he took a good look around and knew there was a bigger impact to be made in his industry & more importantly his life. With the help of wise words from his mom and a strong belief in himself, he chose to take the leap of faith and opened the doors of Next Impact, LLC.  What happened would be enough to knock many others of course, still after major hits he has proven to never back down and is as successful as ever running a now 7 figure business he gets to call his own.  Lester's journey is a true definition that you don't get to choose the cards you're dealt on the journey in life, what you do get to choose is how you move forward to make an impact from that.  Connect with Lester on LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/lester-j-morales-5064b91/ Instagram: @collblum & @tryandstopmepodcast

Lester Morales, CEO, Next Impact

HALO Talks

"Most people back their way into the insurance business . . . but I got into it on purpose," jokes Lester Morales, Founder of Next Impact. Lester's family was one of the 67% of bankruptcies caused by healthcare expenses. "We were a normal, middle class, family. We were there. This shouldn't have happened. It's absolutely a broken system and I played at the highest levels," he continues. In this wide ranging discussion on the "misalignment of incentives" that pervades the industry, Lester talks about how things can change, what his firm does to save employers and employees hundreds of thousands of dollars while still getting the best care, and much more. This is a must listen for anyone concerned about healthcare costs for themselves, or for their employees.
