    How hard is it to get a Nationwide agency? Or is Allied got the same rates as Nationwide.

    Just landed a 28k commercial ag package, which is sizeable for our area.
    Missed out on 2 other 15k accounts in the past 6 months, which sucks, but it's nice to get the looks and get their renewal dates.

    Trying to find a market for a 70k trucking/custom spraying/farming risk, which no one will touch.

    My largest one, was one I landed a year after I started here, that totals 62k. That's a farm policy, with crop insurance, hail insurance, boat, MSA, personal auto, and business auto (for the farming operation).

    Farm Fricken Bureau

    They write the custom spraying for like $6k a year, my only access was through Scottsdale and that was $16k for that portion of the risk.

    I don't like to talk about my whale!

    It was a dark sea and the storm was on the horizon. The wind was coming from the north and the spray of the sea was lofting through the air into my long flowing hair.

    The beast was before me for but one brief moment before she.....


    No.... NO, its too painful to talk about my whale.

    I like watching hippys spray Japanese whalers with water & flashing bright lights at their boats thinking it's going to stop them from raping whales.
