Congrats on passing the test. What we don't need is any more competition in California!

As far as making your 1st million ... borrow 20 million from your parents. Invest it at 5%. Wait one year. (Repeat as needed).

Good luck.

Quickest way to your first million? Land a big life sale! =)

Nahh...be on appointments or prospecting 8 hours a day, 5 days a week and you'll get there soon enough. It's easier said than done though...

I'm in SoCal, what agency are working for?

Hi.

What prelicensing course did you take?

Did you take a class or do it online?

How difficult is the exam?

Thanks.

And always remember to get a pre-nup agreement so that you will see at least some portion of that million.

I know that this question wasn't directed to me, but here goes:


What prelicensing course did you take?
I was fortunate to get enrolled with AD Banker, the instructor is a rather good teacher and has over 30 years experience in the business. The mix of "theory" and his practical knowledge helped.

Did you take a class or do it online?
I chose the class option, personally I tend to do better with a class room setting. Personally I get too distracted by studing on my own for great lenghts of time.

How difficult is the exam?
It's a difficult as you want it to be. Given the instruction, the text, and the CD training that came with the course, I was rather well prepared to take the exam in July and pass the first time through.

The kicker for me was the final session, we went over a ton of material, as well as discecting the methodology of the questions, e.g., why was the question written this way, which answer is the ODD one out, that sort of thing. Once I got this into my thinking process, it made the test that much more "Reuben Friendly".

Now my only problem is waiting to hear from NYL or Mass. Mut. to see which one wants me to sign the contract.
