$1,300/month might not sound like a lot, but you could probably increase your earnings by starting to add other products or try to work out a deal where you can work as more of a producer.
Let's be real here. Most agents never end up making much of anything regardless of who they work with or sign up for whether it be Aflac or whoever.
Those that have gone out and actually tried to make it and you can use Aflac as an example, probably quit or gave up as they were approaching the pivotal time when things could come together. Most quit before they ever get started.
This guy/gal needs to determine first if they are like most agents that fail or is he one of the top 20%. Does he have the drive, motivation, ware-with-all ect. to do it.
I work with prospects and clients who have Aflac. I meet prospects and client who would like to have Aflac or a product like it or their line of products. I haven't meet one person besides an insurance agent who had anything bad to say about Aflac. I'm sure there are just I haven't meet one yet.
Josh makes a good point though about trying to make something work where you are already but that may be a pie in the sky thought as well since nobody here knows your situation better than you do.
