First of all , I'd like to thank everyone for taking the time to read this. Also, I'd like to, in advanced, thank all of those who will reply with some advice/ knowledge . I am thinking about getting into DI. Plain and simple .... I am thinking about adding to my knowledge of products and growing my clientele base/book. I've been licensed in life for about a year and a half now and so far I have been doing ok. I am in PA I'm currently an FE agent. I have been working FE for about 6 months .... It's a tough pace, but ,fortunately, I've been successful in this business. I want to start to transition into a different market and I'm trying to educate myself on where that would be . For some reason, I am interested in learning about DI... At least I think I am hence this post. Do you have any suggestions on where to start ? I'm not too sure what the startup cost for a DI business would be . In fact, I'm not familiar with any of the start up procedures for a DI business....I.E : leads ? Carriers? Licensing? Etc.... I would love any feedback / advice. I have a couple of main "requirements". I want to help people. I want to work/ build long term professional relationships and build a referral network . I would like to have a mentor in the business. I don't necessarily want to quit FE as I am helping many people and feeding my family, but I'd like to find a market that is not so ..... Well , how do I say, "final expense like"? ..... I'm really open to any suggestions . Thanks again.
