    I agree 100% from running at home and my team comment probably should have been explained better. If you put everything into it, run every week, study your scripts, companies, and products you will make a very good living. You put everything into it and eventually you can either form a team or be a career agent. My best friend is a former AIL SA and he loves the freedom of buying his leads and writing business. I decided to build a team. You write your own ticket.

    Leads-I run 25 mailers a week. I made so many mistakes but Less Expensive FB leads 25-40 to start out is not unrealistic. I believe that when you start out and your referral game is not as strong as it will become that 40 Facebook leads is not that far fetched. I would advise to not reinvent the wheel and stick to Mailers but everyone has their own opinions.

    On your 3rd opinion, which product do you think would be more accommodating for home work?

    I think Med Supps lend well to home sales. I also think term life does well.

    FE apparently does good. My concern is that persistency kind of sucks with FE in optimum conditions at around 85%.

    It’s easier to lapse something that already has a high lapse rate when you don’t have an in person connection with someone.

    That being said, I don’t sell FE (but I have sold industrial in the past.) if others are having a good experience selling FE at home, then I would follow what they do.

    To me, and just a personal opinion, FE is a hard sales life that I don’t really want to deal with. If FE is your passion, then absolutely go for it. Industrial really turned me off of low income homes and it doesn’t fit with my goals.

    However, industrial is like poor mans FE. Like, I don’t have a bank account insurance.

    I would start with an IMO that offers a supply of quality DM Leads in exchange for lower commissions. You won't earn as much money per sale - but you can earn more money overall.

    You can always do something different down the road if you choose.
