I Need a Life Insurance Mentor I Need a Life Insurance Mentor
Hello,
I need a mentor to help me start and grow my insurance agency. My primary focus will be on life insurance, starting with mortgage protection and going from there.
My goal for the next twelve months is to generate $1,000,000 in revenue and at least $400,000 in profit before taxes.
While I am sure many of you do not think that is possible, I am confident that this very attainable and I have a proven track record in a similar industry to back up my goals.
What I have in place that helps:
6-8 Salespeople on staff ready to go
Thousands of leads I can call upon immediately
Exceptional Sales Systems and abilities, particularly phone sales
Dozens of potential agents wanting to join this startup (based upon my known reputation with my other businesses)
Very successful direct mail methods & results, generating millions of $$$ in revenue over the past 5 years
4,000 sq ft fully functional office with PCs, copiers, desks, etc.

What I do not have:
Deep insurance industry knowledge
How to obtain the best commission splits
Legal ramifications of bringing people on as captive or non-captive
How 1099 really works in this industry
Many other things
If you think you can help me, drop me a line.

Kathy, you left one thing out...

What do you bring to the table? Why would someone do it?

I can either pay an hourly consulting fee or whatever my mentor thinks is apporpriate. Not looking for a handout.

Kathy, didn't mean to insinuate that you were looking for a handout, just wondered what was up.

I've done a fair amount of this kind of thing (19 years experience). I'll shoot you a pm...
