Few industries outside of the financial services industry offer the potential for relatively inexperienced professionals to make significant income within their first year of employment. Within the financial services industry itself, few careers match the opportunity for as quick and large a paycheck as does being a life insurance agent. Anybody can earn big cash if they have patience and the passion to become one.
It is the same as any job. If you have no passion about it, then you won’t get anywhere. Success as an insurance agent does not come without a cost. Insurance agents hear “no” far more than they hear “yes”. It is not uncommon for the “no” to come mixed with a fair amount of obscenities and the proverbial door in the face. Additionally, many people hold insurance agents in low regard, with some people equating them to glorified con men. But, for those who can stomach the potential rejection, the paycheck and flexibility are worth the effort.
Some women even experience being taken advantage by dirty old men. It is up to you how you handle these type of situations. Be professional. If things will get out of hand, that is a different story. This topic is kind of broad. However, I pointed out a few aspects mostly on what one needs to be successful in becoming an insurance agent.
