    Working under them has been nothing short of a great experience. The tools, technology, and support are unbeatable. It changes the landscape of how you can do business if you take the time to inquire, learn and follow what's laid right in front of you.

    It's apparent that everything they have thrown together is from nothing short of just vast experience in the field. I'm newer into there program but can tell you that I have wrote the same amount of business in 19 working days that I did in 8 months prior while doing captive and face to face contact. I have also read Jeff's book and recommend reading it fully and absorbing the concepts. The way the systems are structured for efficiency, maximizing contacts and staying in front of prospects/leads. Only way you would not get what your hoping for is if you deviate from the plan laid in front of you or try and re invent the wheel that's clearly already working. The support is incredible, I can get an answer to a question extremely fast through Gianni who works with Broker Development, the processing teams go after clients professionally and timely to ensure minimal amount of cases are not being dropped or lost in the cracks, which I have not experienced yet and the only I had that happen with were to no ones fault except my own, it can be scary early and a change and took me a moment to take in fully, but when I realized the only reason I had blemishes early was due to something completely in my control and only my responsibility which was using the systems correctly, learning it quickly and maximizing accuracy on field underwriting and becoming quick to navigate the technology.

    I would say if you can take some time to learning field underwriting, not throwing spaghetti at the wall on the cases, and embracing the technology, you will never be able to top production or income with any other set up. In addition, not trying to re invent what they have placed at your fingertips has been a key for me having a fast start in my opinion. They lay out foundation training areas to help essentially save you from falling in this business and if you execute it, things can stabilize and be rolling in a hurry.

    Best of luck and would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to go this direction, well honestly I'd highly recommend them to anyone not wanting to go this direction as well because I'd argue it would be tough to beat doing it any other way.

    Hey there. I'm with you on this. I would love to get started asap , But here are some setbacks. How does one get licensed in all these states at one time? $3500 is a lot of money. Do you have to start out full time? I was thinking of keeping my FT job, until I get all the training out the way and get my feet wet. I'd hate to quit my FT job to jump on this and it not work our for me. I wish there was a video, "like a day in the life of". I'd like to see EXACTLY how this thing works. Do I sit at a computer and wait for emails/phone calls than there's a "walk through" computer application that assists me to help the client?
    Ordering the book today by the way.. Excited.. :)

    Colie06, you would need to chat with our sales manager first about the VSA program before any licensing money would be committed. We do not let everyone into the VSA program and typically only take on 1 of 5 agents that reaches out. If you are working full time now and plan to continue that, the VSA program is not for you.

    We tell any agent reaching out to us both via the VSA program and thru our brokerage lead programs that this is a full time commitment and requires several months of runway for cash flow purposes (money out on leads vs money in on income/marketing reinvestment).

    Example: Josh above is spending upwards of $10,000/month on leads and is writing applications daily.

    A starting point for you may be live transfer calls for final expense or term. You could potentially do that in the evenings after your full time job. You can at least start with a smaller budget until your cash flow catches up.

    Someone I talked to over the phone a few months back. Told me I would have to at least be licensed in 35 states to get started and that would cost $3500 bucks..

    I don't know of any looking for part time. Insurance as a part time job is not usually very effective. Based on your other posts, you are very green. Like Wino has said before, you should find yourself a mentor and reduce your comp by a few points in trade for the learning experience (that or check out captive carriers that pay a salary during training).

    If I were you, I would start working on the foundation before working on the roof.
