    My best friend is blind and she is studying to be an agent. Despite loosing her eye sight she is capable of doing 90% of what sited people can do. She once held a job for 10 years at a bank, she is very active physically, able to use the phone, computer, do research, sell, set appointments, create schedules, etc...

    She would like to work from home selling insurance. Any companies you recommend?
    Have any of you heard of or know of a blind insurance agent? If so, what companies did they find worked with them or for them?
    Any advice, guidance, or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    I would think med sups would be the way to go for a blind person selling over the phone. Also, disability insurance could be an option. She would have a great story to tell.

    Selling mortgage protection or easy term life without medical exam is easy way to do. You don't have much experiences to sell it. The products are very straightfull and no medical exam needed. Policy is approved in next day. I'm using Manhattan Life products.

    If she is blind, workingbfrom home is a no brainer. Med supps are sold over the phone, final expense, etc.
