    Pros

    This is a great company. however, it is not cut out for every personality type. I mean you don't technically need a college degree. It's all about the level of communication and self confidence. And even that is not enough, the confidence must be based around being a bit salesy and overwhelming belief in the products. Knowledge comes with experience obviously, however, you better have 6 months rainy day money on deposit or clients lined up that will buy life insurance from you within the first month or else you will starve for a long time.

    -Complete independence
    -paid training
    -Self accountability
    -Great mentors
    -Best training around

    Cons

    -100 % commission
    -Zero client referrals, 100% self created markets (friends, family, and networks)

  2. Great opportunity and very organized with a fun atmoshpere

    Sales Job, Full commission based and random fees get annoying it also annoying that you get paid on a 1099 however you still can get benefits

    Advice to Management

    focus on people more than numbers
