    Hello, everyone.

    My name is Brian and I retired from the US NAVY in 2008. Served in desert storm and desert shield, Afganistan and Iraq with the marines as their "doc".

    Blessed by the Almighty, I retired safe and sound.

    The bad news is that the same year I retired the 2008 depression, pretty much wiped out my personal 401k. For the next 7 years I have been looking for a new start and now I am newly licensed as a 2-20.

    I now live in Orlando, Florida with my beautiful wife and two kids. I am hoping this forum can guide me as I start this new path. I would appreciate any assistance i can get.

    Thank You

    Brian

    Thank you for your service. You have a long but rewarding journey in front of you

    What made you go out and get your 2-20 in the first place? Are you currently working at an agency now?

    I just believed that I can do well in this industry. I am a people person, and I hear that if you are disciplined and committed it can give you great rewards. Unfortunaley, it is hard to find an Agency that provides training, mentoring and guidance, but I will keep looking as hard as I can.

    If you go residential, I know there's a bunch of mortgage companies that are big into VA loans & working w/ vets. Would be a perfect referral source.
