    I have been approached by FFL and am considering joining. I like that they have a free class to help me get my license, no contract is required, and renewals are vested at day one. I have seen good and bad reviews but it is likely that your success is up to you and your individual efforts.

    One red flag that comes to mind though is that in there marketing material they claim their average agent makes 115k per year... although in another slide it claims 321 agents hit different levels of six figures.

    It doesn't add up to me because I have also been told that FFL has over 10,000 agents in the field now. That would mean that less than 1% of their agents make $100,000 or more. Yet they claim their average agent makes $115,000. Sitting on the fence over here wondering if I'm being pitched snake oil.

    I'm open to the type of insurance and have an interest in building a downline.

    No snake oil but you nailed it on the head, “your success is up to you and your individual efforts.” And I don’t think FFL has 10,000 Agents in the field....yet. Last training conference a month back I believe the number they said was just under 5000, but that number is growing expeditiously. Just wrapping up 4 months in and tracking at $60,000 issued business. No contracts so jump in and if it doesn’t work for you get out. Why teeter totter when there is nothing nailing you down and you are hearing more good than bad.

    Hi DonJuan,

    That's a good start. You are already on track to make six figures this year. Do you have previous experience selling insurance? How much are you spending on leads? How much of that has gone to charge back so far? Just curious... I realize that you are just getting started and it sounds like a pretty good start at that... well done.

    I wonder how their median agent compares to the average.

    Truth be told I don't give a $h#t what you call it. It doesn't take much time for participants to get a sense this forum/platform is full of negative, condescending, and downright unhappy individuals who use their cloak of anonymity to put down and criticize others who project success in this profession.......no doubt to make themselves fell better about their own failures, insecurities, shortcomings, and lack of success......basically a bunch of bullies in the classic sense of the word.

    The evidence is well laid out in almost every thread one clicks on. It seems the only ones who start to add anything of value are the new members who quickly see this environment is not one that fosters positive energy, growth, and development, and soon you see their participation and comments/feedback disappear. To give credit where credit is due, there are many others who clearly are here to provide good advice, share their experience and knowledge, and seem to genuinely want to help. But those seem to be far and in between.

    Yesterday's post was my first since I signed up over a month ago. Mostly because #1 I'm in the field each and every day growing my business, making great money, and trying to achieve my next level of success, and #2 someone sent me a PM asking me a sincere and genuine question. Otherwise my feeling is that its not worth the energy to invest in such a dreary environment. This is the last place any newbie in the business should be going to for ANY help and meaningful advice.

    Trolls, have fun with my post.....I'm off to my first appointment of seven scheduled on this fine Saturday. See ya.

    Now, now brown cow, I wish you much success but that don’t change my skepticism; like my Grandma always said, “too much sugar for a dime”.

    RUN...they have great training but if you cant afford to buy leads right away forget it. They own a lead house called MailPro and charge the agents top dollar for the lead like $67 dollars and if you dont sell the lead within 30 days they resell it to another agent. They have vendors that sell fb leads that cost $30 a pop and not exclusive... if you cant spend $1500 a week on leads run! Their managers will sell you leads they already worked and sold to multiple agents....
