I'm presently on my first day of being full-time self-employed as an independent agent. I am super duper nervous, but I suppose things are going alright. I've made about fifty calls today over three and a half hours (I'm not fitting in nearly as many calls-per-hour as I thought I'd be able to). So far, I've had: Two people who wanted to change their individual plans and requested that I call them back later on today. One person that wants to put his nine employees on a group plan. A few angry folks who have hung up on me, but far fewer than I thought I'd have. Lots and lots of voicemails. I feel sort of discouraged until I get up and step away for a second. Three decent prospects after 3.5 hours of calling, I don't think that's too bad...is it? So far, I'm still trying to find what works for me. My script feels a little unnatural right now, but I think that'll come with time.Anyway, that's my story -- just thought I'd share while waiting for my webinar to start!
