Ethics, Flood, Life, Cops with Great Hair

Miami Vice Insurance Education


“That’s T.U.B.B.S: tough, unique, bad, bodacious, sassy.”

-Det. Ricardo “Rico” Tubbs from Miami Vice describing FISCE Webinars



The 80s are back.

Specifically, the arrival of fall weather in the Sunshine State. High temps across much of our state recently have failed to crack 90! (are we talkin’ about the weather or my golf game?! Oh! *adjusts necktie, points to band for rimshot)

On tap this week: Life/Health licensees get ethical, flood stuff, life insurance, and Bartles & Jaymes wine coolers. I could go on but your attention span is falling faster than Baby in dance rehearsal so I’ll get to it. Here are this week’s highlights:

  • Let’s get ethical, ethical. Life & Health licensees: if you need your 5-hour Law/Ethics update, join Karin “Olivia Newton John of Insurance” Woofter Wednesday morning and she’ll get ethical with you. 
  • For the first time in history, it’s gonna’ start raining men (because there’s no water left.) It’s been a soggy summer for many along the east coast with some cities experiencing record flooding. Join Robin “Third Member of the Weather Girls” Federici Thursday morning for the latest from the NFIP.
  • He’s seen a million faces, rocked them all, and sold many of them a life policy. Corey “Bon Jovi of Insurance” Wilkins takes the stage Thursday afternoon for a performance about all-things life insurance. 

For more info about what we’re up to, see the list below and/or review the full Webinar Schedule on the website.

Finally, if you’re an unapologetic lover of our fine state be sure to shoot to the bottom of this newsletter for a little something special.

That’s all for now. Until the next round…cheers!

Watchers of Miami Vice reruns may think it’s just another cheesy cop drama from the 80s. However, generational Miamians likely would agree that the “Vice Effect” is real and what it did to improve areas of the city and Miami Beach can’t be understated. When filming began on location in 1984, areas that are now envied as global tourist destinations were mostly dilapidated buildings. The show directly benefited some areas as set designers were tasked with improving/painting many buildings (no earth tones were allowed!). Its global popularity is credited with bringing in tourist dollars which were a boon to the area’s businesses and infrastructure. The show also was essential with helping the Miami Design Preservation League to showcase the area’s Art Deco style to the world.
