    Well, you just don't know what you don't know! Give it time, you'll figure it out.

    24 years in state government my friend.......law enforcement management. My writing will be detailed and long out of habit....sorry. And for the guy who got a headache.....good....maybe you will take a pill and chill. I was clear I am with FFL, so I am an FFL person. No need to fabricate or lie. In the end to each their own.

    This post was not to sell you or anyone else on FFL, but to provide Cynthia an answer to her question based on my own experience. Perhaps instead of being trolls or having negative comments you could actually add something of value to the discussion. Please share your positive experiences with your agency or maybe enlighten us on your own monthly production and earnings......always open to learn from those who are positive, inspiring, and have more experience.

    Dan, so sorry you can't take constructive criticism. :rolleyes:

    I am a Troll and you need to learn how to use paragraph's. :yes:

    I don't need a chill pill. I'll just smoke some pot. That should get rid of the headache you gave me. :jiggy:

    What type of leads are you working? Spending $1000 on leads and closing $20,000AP is way better than average.

    Billyb, I have been following my upline’s lead plan from day 1 which taught me to diversify as much as possible so I’m working them all. I get mortgage protection, final expense, and life insurance leads. I also work a decent amount of discounted 2nd chance leads. I did kick up my lead budget last month and this month by a couple hundred dollars as I’m now trying the direct mail mortgage protection leads which are more costly than the online ones I was getting, but I’m converting a higher percentage of those. In short I’m sticking to what has been working for me from the beginning and duplicating it each month while making slight adjustments as I learn and continue to develop in my new chosen profession. Someone posted that my lingo was to detailed for someone who was new so I guess I should consider it a compliment, but truth be told this is not rocket science. After several months of training, a decent amount of in-home presentations, dials setting appointments, copying what the top producers are doing, and a fair amount of f-ups and learning from those mistakes, you should be able to speak from some competent level of knowledge. Still have a lot to learn but I’ll be damned if I don’t give it my best shot while doing it. I know this went a little long but that was my intent in hopes I cause a particular perp an aneurysm but that’s just wishful thinking

    "I know this went a little long but that was my intent in hopes I cause a particular perp an aneurysm but that’s just wishful thinking."

    You really wish someone would get an aneurysm? That's pretty low down. You're new here, so now might be a good time to put a check on yourself if you want to remain on this forum.

    Get off your soap box Todd and stay on topic. It was clearly a figure of speech meant in jest, albeit a lil dark, but still not intended to be taken literally.

    I addressing your veiled threat to remove me from this forum, new or old to this forum, who are you to suddenly twist this thread around and judge me based on one sentence in a long paragraph of information provided in reply to a question asked of me. If you even had the authority to do so, that would be a pretty sad bar of moderation to set, which to be honest, if that was the case would not bother me one bit.

    That said I will leave it at that.

    "I know this went a little long but that was my intent in hopes I cause a particular perp an aneurysm but that’s just wishful thinking."

    My brother passed away June 1st almost two years ago of something similar to a brain aneurysm. Since he was a 34-year-old white male and PA is one of the top three States for opioid deaths, the police treated it like suspicious death.

    The very next day the coroner was able to tell my family it was a brain hemorrhage, but we didn't know for another six months that it was caused by a brain tumor called a ganglioglioma. He had one when he was nine years old, and it may have come back.

    You have no idea of the pain peoples' families go through when they lose someone to these obviously. I advise against making insensitive comments like this again if you want to remain on the forum or in the industry. My parents have aged considerably since his untimely passing.

    Did not mean for you to, but nevertheless thank you for sharing. I too have seen death way to many times, some that touched my family, so I know the pain quite too well. And for that I apologize. As previously stated not my intent and will use better judgement in the future.
