    Here are ones that I am familiar with. Mostly free:

    Life Insurance Selling-The best one for sales ideas. Chock full of current annuity ads, too.

    Broker World - Good read for independent agents and brokers.

    Advisor Today - The journal for NAIFA, formerly NALU. A good read with plenty of sales ideas that work.

    Financial Planning - A success guide for those who practice or support the evolving profession of comprehensive personal financial planning emphasizing strategies and trends. Serves the field of the financial services industry.

    Agent Sales Journal

    The Senior Market Advisor

    There are publications other than the ones I named but this is plenty of reading and will keep you abreast of things. One rule should be to only read during off hours when you cannot be selling. I try to read in the bathroom, when my wife is in the store, late night, etc.

    I believe if you go to the section titled "agent resources," you will see a list of free magazine & journal offers. Lots to choose from there, and it helps support the forum.
