    I would also like advice on finding an additional FMO or two. I currently have an FMO that has two MA products, but nothing else. I called a guy today with Copeland Group out of Texas. They sounded great, lots of good products, but .... no leads. You could buy postcard mailers and you could buy "scrubbed lists" but they didn't actually have leads for people who were interested in the products. This didn't seem like it would be worthwhile to me. I want leads, but I don't want appointments set for me, as I have to work around my wife's schedule and the kids. This leaves me free to work every morning, and some afternoons, as well as weekends. How does one find an FMO, how do you know if they are good. Mary, on this group, sent me some info and she spoke very highly of two of her FMO's, both of whom offer things that I don't currently have, an end of life/burial policy and a medicare insurance supplement policy. This sounds good to me, but do I just sign up, or do I do more research.
    Your insightful opinions welcomed! :D

    Thanks,

    Arno

    Go with the scrub list and make the calls! Bypass all the agencies and get appointed directly with the carrier if at all possible such as World or Sterling Investors Life out of Texas. You'll make more and have dominion over your world.

    Look in the Senior forum. Mary mentioned a company MSIS that has leads for hospital indemnity plans. 1-800-845-8765. They also carry med supp companies. Not sure about MA plans. Also Medicare Advantage Consulants. 800-998-7715 Good luck.
