    Like I said, the national narrative on acceptance and legal use and revenue generation, therefore legislation and regulation and taxation is rapidly changing directly under the feet of many who don't yet see it, or who choose not to see it.

    Private Equity and VC's do their homework. If they're funding certain parts of the Industry it's usually wise to follow, or at least pay close attention for investable opportunities whether it be through Human Capital or otherwise

    He says he has a line out the door of experienced Agency/Brokerage career business-building, entrepreneurial type of women breaking away for the "first-mover-advantage." He says had to pull the add after 3 days. He's was overwhelmed with CV's. International play too.

    I would expect the "bible-belt" to be a bit slower to come around. As with all new major societal changes they tend to come from the Coasts inward.

    Certainly not for everyone though.

    Just a thoughtful answer to a question about what kind of success female Commercial agents might have from an Internet Yak Board. It's worth exactly what you paid for it.

    It's great to be empowered, however gender alone does not make a producer excellent, it's knowledge of programs and networking.

    Joining associations and holding events for clients is a great way to break through the industry. The buyers are less concerned of the producer's gender rather than the insurance product and the producer's knowledge in the industry.

    In retail, female producers tend to be successful as their voice and demeanor is generally pleasant. It really depends who is on the other end of the phone/desk when factoring these traits.
