    Hello,
    I have just passed my CA exam and licence is pending. I think becoming a producer for an independent might be a good start for me...any thoughts?
    I have enjoyed learning about the business (and about chat room decorum) here. I hope I can contribute worthwhile topics in the future.

    thanks M7, here's one...
    I decided to take the Life Only exam. I'm noticing that many people are using their Health business to write Life.

    Did I make a rookie mistake?

    I May Be New Here, But This Looks Like An Inappropriate
    Spam Message. I Was Just Looking For Some Advice As I Start My Business, Not A Pre-Packaged Solution.

    but, thanks anyway...good luck with your recruiting.

    Wow...things happen fast around here!

    Hey, Mr. B- perhaps you can give me your .02 about Independent vs. Captive? I'm beginning to get the picture by reading posts but would welcome your take.

    Ah, the best advice I can give (such that it is) for new members is to plan to spend a lot of time using the "search" feature of the forum. You can find out about GAs, FMOs, marketing strategies, all of it. Everyone comes with a different perspective, whether to sell life, health, disability, annuities, etc., so go get some cold ones and have some fun!

    welcome to the forum! i am pretty new here also. there is a ton of great information here for all areas of insurance. i have been seaching the forums for a while, and am finding that the "similar threads" section at the bottom of the pages, is a great way to read up on more information, without having to scroll through the posts to see if there is something interesting.
