No, I'm pretty sure you can just give someone $75k, and they'll give you a $150k/yr perpetual annuity.  That is consistent with the rest of my life experiences.

Yes, I am here to tell you these tests are brutal, and much to my dismay, I arrived to find out they were not open book!

I would have crumbled like a dried-out souffle.

It was a difficult time in my life; to see my dream be denied was gut wrenching.

Seeing the souffle dry out was also gut wrenching.

Its family.


Edit: Did I just leak information out of the inner circle?

Can we make @GreenFrog an official member of the Bottomer Club of StyleForum?  :crackup:

You ever wonder why Insurance companies are the first to contact you when you put a resume out on a job board? You see good companies that pay you well, don't do that, they seek out only the best and its a drawn out process that can take a while. No good deeds go unpunished.

 

"I found your resume today on Monster.com. After reviewing your career accomplishments and work history, I would like to meet with you to discuss our opportunity at Farmers Insurance. We are currently developing an Agency Owner position in the greater XXX area, and are looking for a motivated professional such as yourself.  Farmers is looking to rapidly expand its agent base over the next several months. There is an excellent start up package for the first three years as you do not buy your book of business.  .  Our first year agents average $60,000, second year agents average $90,000 and our full-time agents average $150,000 per year.

 

Farmers Insurance and Financial Services is a dynamic and widely respected company that has enjoyed eight decades of successful business. In fact, we are currently the fastest growing multiple line insurance company in the nation, and are one of the largest providers of auto, and homeowners insurance in the country. 

 

Our District is coming off a record breaking year in 2015 for new business auto/home production and we are currently ranked #1 out of over 500 district operations nationwide for career agent success.

 

Please contact me with any questions you may have or to set up an interview"

 

Sounds like a dream to a nearly new kids that don't know any better, Insurance is a turnover business, where you the cattle work to be slaughtered later on down the road. Ive had my insurance license since 2006, and never have a seen a company yet that walks the talk they spew, coming from a very short Primerica background, I learned early on the swindle that is Insurance, you want to make a difference and get lots of business and makes lots of money? Be ethical and truly give the client what they really need and you will be rewarded with referrals....There's a reason why Farmers is always on the job boards...
