Negative? Has the individual recruiting you fully disclosed your financial responsibility for those you recruit? Or has he/she only talked about the passive income you'll enjoy?

imho, you should not recruit until you've experienced personal success in the industry AND you can accept the financial liability that goes hand in hand with a downline.

Babies recruiting babies is the mlm model.

Worked over expensive leads, zero training and managers that do not know anything about selling or the products.

Good luck with that.

Never even think of recruiting until you know your products and have had success in selling. You need to have a solid foundation before you recruit. Also, plan on a pay cut when you start recruiting, so you better have a good bank before you start.

I would be allowed to do so much with them. I would have great mentorship by seasoned agents and money managers, they actually just struck a deal with mortgage company that is giving us pretty stellar leads for a override on the commission, so marketing is improving. I also have developed a pretty good relationship with one of the senior guys there and he is willing to pass me lots of his extra work for a small 5% override on some 80-100% contracts. Also, I am loving the products we are selling, they really help people plan for their future, so I did end up going with the smaller agency!

When I was a new agent I went straight to a big nationally known company. I wanted a place that I could work from home, help families, define my income and make my own hours without being pushed to do things I am not comfortable with or ready to do. When I found the company I work for now I was at my "give up" point. I am sooo happy and finally with a company that is about the Agent and taking care of families!!!
