“Always have a backup plan”
Buddy Valastro — aka the Cake Boss
If you watch “Cake Boss,” you’ll see Buddy, owner of Carlo’s Bake Shop, orchestrating confectionary masterpieces. Good fortune seems to have parked at Buddy’s doorstep. But before the success came hardship, which is why he is the national spokesperson for Life Insurance Awareness Month this September.
As a boy, Buddy worked in the family bakery and his dream was to someday help his dad make it a household name. But on Buddy’s 17th birthday, his father was diagnosed with lung cancer and died three weeks later. Because his father had no life insurance, Buddy had to drop out of high school and take over the family business.
Now married and a father of four, Buddy owns lots of life insurance so his family and his business will always be protected.
