Medicare Con Speaker Eugene Marchenko
Eugene Marchenko


2 Minute Medicare was started by Yevgeniy “Eugene” Marchenko.

Eugene obtained his license in 2010 while working in the banking industry. After the decline of the economy in 2008 and countless conversations with folks about ways to keep their homes, Eugene realized it is time to focus on an industry that actually helps people.

After getting his license, his experience in helping folks with their health and life insurance needs led him to open his own brokerage.

Now, representing a multitude of companies throughout the United States, his opinion is unbiased. His goal is to help individuals with their insurance needs and to find the right product that helps people in their specific situation.

2 Minute Medicare has one goal in mind.

To simplify Medicare and make it easy to understand.

There is a lot of information and most people have a hard time navigating all of the confusion. Instead of spending months researching, 2 Minute Medicare will help answer any question you have in 2 minutes or less.

All you have to do is search for your questions.

Medicare Con Speaker Peter J Fournier
Peter J Fournier


Peter J. Fournier has been in the life insurance industry for nearly a decade. He has been a top producer in both a captive environment as well as within his own agency and has developed dozens of replicable procedures and presentations for hundreds of life agents across the country.

Starting as an intern in college, Peter was entrenched in the industry at an early age. After a few years as a captive agent, Peter branched off to an IMO and went through some trial by fire when it came to building and managing a team. Mistakingly focusing heavily on recruiting early on and trusting in a self-serving up-line, Peter had to dig himself out of a spot that so many agents find themselves in early on in their career. After making careful adjustments and reevaluating his business plan, he grew himself into a top personal producer and a well rounded manager and trainer, aiding his agents in achieving career milestones, both personally and financially. 

Today, Peter manages a team of agents, personally produces in the field, but most importantly, trains and coaches agents outside of his organization on how to become successful in the industry and avoid the mistakes that he had made in the past.
