Expectations of AP based on answers above?
If I were going to go out one day a week I would just do a 1000 piece mailer every 2 weeks.
I would use some TM leads until that flow became regular.
Over time I would learn whether the 1000 piece mail every 2 weeks is too much, not enough or just right.
I would prefer to set appointments but if I've only got one day that would be difficult.
But if I limited myself to one day I would call in the am for afternoon appointments.
I always expect to write at least $2K any day I'm in the field. That wouldn't change.

I'm a workaholic and really pressed for more income right now so I undoubtedly know I can make this work.
I don't think that's the case. There were part agents when I was at EFES and there are part time agents with FEX.
I'm sure 360 has some part time agents.
What they are most likely telling you is that they will not put you on the set price lead program that they administer unless you are fully committed to the business.
That's because they have to pay for those leads upfront.
And a part time agent would be overwhelmed anyway with 20 leads coming their way every week. Would an agent working part time commit to spending $600 or so every week?
