You never know what could happen to them when you leave that house. But is the price ideal? No. no reason not to write it as long as you are doing it for the right reasons and aren't pushy.
I never said I wouldn't sell it to them if they really wanted it. I just said that it makes me cringe.

You know full well I don't "run appointments" in the field like regular field agents. I don't have the luxury of time to do that and also do what I do with the 2000+ agents we have.

I wrote 1 last week and will write 2 more either tomorrow or Monday. I do write referrals but it's a rare occasion for us to get leads for ourselves.

This still doesn't mean I haven't ran 1000's of appointments when I was in the field. I stated what worked best for me, not you, and not anyone else.

You would lose money if you made that bet. While not all 2000 agents write a bunch, you can count on at least 10% of them being very consistent. That's a conservative figure. Out of those 10%, they will write way more than 5 apps a year! More like 4-5 per week on average. Then, I would say that another 30% will write an average of 4-5 per month. Once again, I'm being conservative. Either way, your figures are way off base.

Easier figure is weekly/monthly/ yearly production

With that many it seems like you'd do around 400,000 a week? If it's strictly fe.

No, not strictly FE. Many are Med Supp agents.

Nice. Seems like you would still get a few million in FE each year which has to put you up in the top percentages of FE.
