Amazing Marvin: Use Psychological Techniques to Get Your To-Do List Done

So much to do
Throughout the day
You need focus
To fight through the fray

Tasks pile up
And can overwhelm
Making us less productive
And feel out of our realm

Task lists
Are a preferred way
To get things done
They are mainstays

It’s a simple concept
And the quickest route
Just write things down
Then cross them out

Traversing the list
Is the key
One by one
To keep your schedule free

Amazing Marvin
Is a new app
That keeps you moving
Makes progress a snap

Set your goals
And pick your method
To stay on track
And finish what you wanted

With a fun interface
So warm and inviting
Making deadlines
Is much more exciting

Psychologically
Designed to keep
You right on track
Making steady leaps

So if you want
More than a to-do list
Amazing Marvin
Helps you persist

Young Alfred: Your Personal Butler to Find the Perfect Insurance Plan

Insurance shopping
Can take a lot of work
To read the legal terms
Where clauses lurk

For every state
And type of property
Renters and owners
Have different needs

Earthquakes storms
Floods and theft
Have each in turn
Left owners bereft

And let’s not forget
So we can sleep soundly
To cover members
Of our four pawed families

When legalese
Comes into play
It’s large companies
That win the day

What we need
Is a kind ma’am or sir
To sift through it all
Like a personal butler

His name is Alfred
And there’s nothing more
He likes to do
Than this legal chore

The many terms
And each hidden clause
He knows by heart
For every law

Houses he can
Duly inspect
Using big data
And AI checks

This saves time
And complexity
Just a few questions
Is all he needs

So next time you move
Or buy cars or home
Send Young Alfred
To the details comb


Young Alfred is a new way to shop for insurance. Surprisingly, the insurance industry still has holdouts that rely on manual inspections and personal insurance agents to make a purchase. In an internet age, it’s time to upgrade the process and Young Alfred is leading the way. Named after the butler from Batman, Young Alfred is an independent insurance agency that sells the best plans for your needs. It represents the top providers and is the way millennials and the new generation expected to buy insurance.

The process of buying home, renters, auto, or pet insurance can be an arduous one. Between all the questions, legalese, terminology, and clauses, many buyers end up making their choice primarily based on coverage rates. For instance, if you’re buying a new home you need to consider all the various types of coverage such as flood, earthquake, and theft. Depending on your location different coverages may be higher risk than others and you should purchase a plan accordingly. Buying home insurance, in particular, requires answering numerous questions about the specifics of the house.

But this is an internet age and we can certainly do better than that. Young Alfred uses readily accessible data to determine all the risk factors for your specific location and optimizes its suggested plans accordingly. It does image analysis of your home to evaluate the materials it’s constructed with. It uses publicly accessible weather and crime data to make sure you understand the risk levels. It pulls from large data sets and distills the amount of information you need to provide to just a few questions. What once was an hour long call with an insurance agent becomes a few minutes filling out a form for free. They created a doc on how to use it if you’d like to check it out here. It’s really so simple you can just go through their friendly interface though.

Founded by David Stasie and Jason Christiansen who met at Wharton’s MBA program, they make a powerhouse team with their combined engineering and finance backgrounds. Young Alfred is currently available in PA, NY, and NJ and will soon expand to the rest of the country. Even if you live in a different state, you can get a clear report on all the risk factors local to your area today, and sign up to be notified when coverage is available.

The days of buying insurance with fax machines and phone calls have come to an end. Young Alfred is your personal assistant that does all the legwork for you, making the process of getting home, renters, auto, and pet insurance as easy as buying a plane ticket.

PS: Young Alfred also put together a sick house cleaning playlist.
