    I have spoken with several local health agents and they are feeling the damage of the poor economy, credit crunch, inflation etc.. Most of the guys work in b2b market, self-employed, landscaping, truck drivers etc..

    Is the market effecting anyone else's business? The agents that I know that are in the senior market claim they are not feeling the results of the economy yet. Opinions?

    I've never written more individual health. All of my prospects who otherwise wouldn't care about their "$500" premium all of a sudden care.

    That is what I thought. I had a hard time buying what they are saying, I think they just got lazy all of a sudden.

    To me, the glass is half full. I use the economy as one of my main selling points. With today's ever rising prices of food, gas, and health care, I have yet to run into somebody who doesn't want to save themselves money.

    The news organizations make money selling doom & gloom. I just offer my clients a way to help them save $1200 to $3000.

    If I could show you how to save $1200, would you be interested?

    When I'm on the phone with prospects and showing them $150 a month savings off their current plan I ask "so how many tanks of gas is that?"
