    Pros

    It is, as far as I know, the only company that actually gives you the opportunity to own your business. You can sell it, or more valuable to me, is you can leave it to your family. This is incredible. Not only that but they have created a method in which they are giving us equity appreciation rights, which means they are sharing the complete value of the company with all of us, as agents. It is pretty unheard of and most likely the best thing in our industry. Just incredible if you really understand all this means.

    Cons

    I wish everyone had the drive to utilize this incredible system and unbelievably generous ownership team, to change their lives, the way it has for my family. It is to good to have people fail and that is the worst when you really want it for someone but they don't want it bad enough for themselves. That's a bummer.

    The Real Review

    Pros

    Work your own hours. Stay at home job 60% of the time. Very positive environment. Great conventions to travel and meet people. Potential to recruit everyone you know. When your up - feels amazing to be there. And once you take a turn, well then, see below...

    Cons

    Let me explain to you - that - it pains me to write this. This company took me a long way. But what I never realized, is if you compaire them to other brokers, they are low on the compensation scale. Start at 60% - I have had offers to start at 70% and even 85%. If you don't like running a team and recruiting, then don't bother. If you manage to write enough business to make a living, you need to get help - you would need to hire people to set appointments. Your really running your entire business and your upline will give you the moral boost. The Con is the debt - you will end up going bankrupt, owe the IRS - and probably be reported to Vector and go bust. They pressure you into taking out more lead orders, it gets expensive. Ah - you best hope nobody charges back a deal. The business is a doggy dog world. The guys who recruit are at the top of the chain. The sad truth is I made my upline thousands, when I was going broke, he wouldn't loan me a dime to save my life. I was selling everything I own, and taking out more debt to pay for leads. I was a great agent, above average - in fact I made it much farther then 80% of the new hires. No benefits, No 401k, No insurance, once you pay for leads and benefits, you best hope your buying the $30 dollar leads to get some good clients. It is really hard, I think if you make it, you probably know how to run a business - not for an average Joe in my opinion.
