    I am also retired military and would be glad to discuss my transition from the military, to captive to an independant agent. most of the companies and MGA's want followers and will demand you do as I say....not as i do. in many instances its a leaderless field. they were simply promoted because they could sell, but can not train, coach or mentor...many, but not all contact me at [email protected]

    Quick Question- I am in the process of filing a personal bankruptcy due to a divorce, how will this effect becoming an Independent Agent? will I be able to get appointed or contracted to sell products?

    Yes.

    You will need to have a your "reason" down, As all the companies will ask. Advance will be a little harder but not impossible. I would try to get my contracting done before the BK, if you are licensed. Work with a good GA that will get you a good core group of companies. I would not shot gun out my contracting. Easier to get advanced if you have the bulk of your production in just a few companies. Once up and running really try to move back to as earned for at least half the companies. There will be slumps.

    Get a free credit report so you know what is on there.

    You will by no means be the only agent with a BK.

    Good Luck,
    Lee

    Any advise for a possible newbie to this business from Reading, PA? I have been successful selling computer technology solutions, and until recently real estate. I am considering a switch to insurance sales. It seems working with an independant agency is the way to go, right? Can you get the training online?
