Just wondering what the vets did starting out.  Excited and frightened all at once :)

Is every rookie question on this board met with sarcasm and derision?  I'm sorry I wasted your time.

Asking that is like using google to search for a good search engine.

if you want an insurance forum, go to insurance-forums.net.  this is hardly an insurance producer's forum. =)  

This is like going to an Italian restaurant that makes an occasional california roll, expecting great sushi.

Same as FA business. The key is prospecting through various methods, mainly cold calling and mailers, and making as many contacts as humanly possible. Make the contacts necessary to set the appointments and you will make a nice living. simple. You don't have to be Einstein. Hard work will result in contacts, which results in appointments, which results in sales, which means $$$$$$$$$$$ in your pocket.

Remember, selling a product is easy. A monkey can sell if he has enough qualified appointments. The true sale is persuading a prospective client to give you 30 minutes of their time. Prospecting and making contacts is 95% of the business.
