They all looked at us like we where a bunch of rejects. Which we were seeing that we was working for AFLAC. We lost the sale right there and then. I dont think I ever laughed so hard in my life. He then insisted on doing it the rest of the day. Needless to say we didnt even come close to making a sale!
That's funny! I have three people that were training with me in New York Life that came from AFLAC. They all made okay money and did alright, but they had your same complaints about oversaturation of agents. Next NYL meeting I'll ask them if they were ever told to open the door and squeeze the duck.
