    What are some of the best states to be licensed? I'm speaking mainly of health sales. Right now I'm licensed in PA and will be looking at other states soon.

    If you are in PA, Ohio is an obvious choice.

    The only state with a FREE non resident license also.

    You should work your home state first and learn what you are doing if you are new before you venture to multiple states.

    Would it be easier also to concentrate on one or two carriers at first, until you figure out what you are doing, and then go from there?

    Another question I have is face to face vs. telephone when you are starting out?

    I have sales experience just not in insurance, so it's a whole new learning process. I know you have a pretty big operation, how do you bring your newbies along?

    I never sold face to face.

    I only have 3 primary carriers, and a few for specialty stuff.

    I concentrate on a basically 3 good companies.

    Training and recruiting and employee retention and problems is really the biggest issue. Very difficult to manage.
