It really is NOT a tough job. I don't know many pre-need agents who cold call at all. Most have much warmer lead sources.
If your friend has been with SCI that long and hasn't explored her options elsewhere, she has lasted through MANY commission cuts. She is VERY loyal but would make MUCH more money if she went elsewhere.
She may have a good gig. She probably makes it sound tough to keep you and other agents from jumping into it.
