    Pros

    The Company and People are amazing! The ongoing support and training is critical to your success and it's easily available.

    Cons

    You're an Independent Agent. While you have the ability to build your own empire, getting started can be a little rough. You need to be realistic and know that in advance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    The products we offer truly make a difference and I'm allowed to set my own schedule. I work about 40 hours a week and I get paid much more than I actually need. I'm able to save money and get ahead here. My managers constantly ask me about MY goals and dreams, and they help me map out a plan to achieve those. The company cares more about you as a person than your amount of sales. It's a healthy place to work. We take a lot of great company trips and I get monthly stock and cash bonuses just for doing what I'm suppose to. There is a TON of room for personal AND professional growth. You do NOT have to wait to get a promotion to get into management. Advancement is earned. YOU decide the career path that is best for you. It is NOT decided for you. There's no cap on your income. The culture is very positive and encouraging. There's a lot of great training and support. I think what we do is great. Success is not given away. It's earned. But you are highly recognized and rewarded for doing well. And p.s.... did I mention that there is LIFETIME residual income?

    Cons

    I think the only con I could think of is self funded benefits. But I guess that's pretty normal for small business owners. With the amount of income you can make, it really doesn't matter.

    Pros

    The products are great. They add are of tremendous value to the client if they need to use it... and if they don't, it is a savings plan where they get all of their money back.
    The Culture of the Company is really inspiring! Everyone is focused on growth through service.

    Cons

    The autonomy can be a challenge to handle for someone that doesn't have self-discipline.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for more trips!

    Pros

    Great pay, they offer base pay/commission, bonuses, family vacations, paid training, a company Ipad, 5 day work week, gas bonuses, stock options, and much more! You will also have the opportunity for advancement in as little as 12 weeks with the option of building your own team, which means added compensation. Requirements: 18+, some sales experience preferred. Must be able to pass a background check (no felonies)

    Cons

    It is hard to get started. FHL and Bluegrass Heritage of Morehead Ky do provide warm leads, tons of marketing for you, and work with several businesses in the area, but it is still sales. You have to be able to handle rejection. But overall a great company to work for.

    Pros

    I came into FHL with no sales experience. I learned the material and worked hard to learn their system. By my 3rd week, I was making more money than the salaried position I left. My trainer spent many days in the field with me helping me get started.

    Cons

    It's not for everyone. You have to work and have a good attitude to be successful. You have to take responsibility for your life and not look for excuses.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the support, training, bonuses, stock, ect.

    Pros

    Amazing product with a company that works to do the right thing.

    Cons

    In the environment of a "family culture" the Sales Director makes or breaks you. My Sales Director managed from a bar. Depending on the time of day determined the energy. Pushing and demanding sales while intoxicated. Bonuses were put up but never paid. Watch your account!!

    Advice to Management

    Do what you say. Spending 24/7 drinking and chasing women is not the example Howard Lewis promotes.
