2. Time spent on this site debating is a huge money-waster. I saw FT budget out his time spent on here in a previous post of his, and factored it to a year, and it was a pretty big number.

It's a shame too, he's probably 1 of 5 b2b/cold prospecting experts on this forum that I liked reading.
Yo JBj, I don't know FT but I saw you post about him in another thread. Can you share anything you learned from him? What were his pillars that he built his B2B around, I really want to specialize in Commercial with personal lines simply being an extension of what I do for SBO.

He did dabble in the commercial threads a bit, but aside from going through all his previous posts or going through the entire P&C forum for commercial prospecting I would have to say his number one pillar was: just make the calls...

"Amen" and I'm not churchie but I would agree.

OK, I will try and research all of Full Throttle's stuff on Commercial Prospecting.

And anyone who has not picked up a copy of JBj's book which can be had on Amazon, it's strong, so strong in fact it has me questioning my long term employment at my current agency.

That said, the P&C sticky thread for newbies clearly says it is best to work for someone before going it alone.

Here are all the threads where Full Throttle has initiated. I hope this works.
