    Vectors will be a problem for almost every carrier. The ones I mentioned above are a little more concerned about personal credit but I think they're just looking for collections and bankruptcy.

    I have never been vectored because I just getting started. Since this is anonymous I will come out with the truth. IF I have been brought to collects for credit cards and have chargeoff... a few years old. Should I even bother.

    Sure you should 'bother'. Apply for what you want. You can even apply for appointment direct with many companies.

    Some of the more 'stringent' carriers may not appoint you - at least not without an explanation. But others will appoint you and advance commissions.

    Of course, your mileage may vary.

    I don't think you'll have a problem. I've seen people in your situation get contacted with everyone they applied with. It's possible some might want you to go as earned but even then it's only for a time till you prove you're not writing bad business.

    Get some product... simple life or cancer or accident... go knock some doors and get your feet wet... if you can't do that start following another agent... pay him (buy his coffee) if you have to...

    DO SOMETHING FIRST... to see if you can make the cut... dipping your toe in this business to see how it all feels is a bad way to start IMHO.
