Becoming a life insurance agent could be the best thing you will ever do. There are so many positive reasons to becoming a life insurance agent that it would be impossible to list them all, but here are a few of the top reasons why you should consider it.
A lot of people want to make a difference in people’s lives. I am sure you did not think to yourself, “being a life insurance agent will help me have a positive impact on someone else’s life,” but that is what it will do. People are coming to you to purchase something they do not like to think about, insurance for when they, or a loved one, dies.
However, when that happens, and they are then able to lay them to their final resting place and continue to pay their bills, they will be forever thankful. Also, hopefully, you will able to save them some money while doing so.
Work Life Balance
The insurance industry is one of the most technology-friendly industries. What this means for you is the probability of having a flexible schedule. Many people are looking for that perfect work life balance, and you can find that here.
Life insurance agents can usually set their schedule and work around any conflicts. This also creates the possibility of not being tied to a desk five days a week. Some places may even let you work out of the comfort of your home.
You may even get to travel a bit to see clients, so you could see parts of the country you may not have otherwise.
Job hopping can be stressful and cause issues for future jobs. So you will want a job that can be a lifelong career and becoming a life insurance agent is a great option. While no job is a guaranteed recession proof job, Monster.com says insurance is one of the top industries that is safe.
People always need help paying the bills should their loved one pass away. Also, insurance is one of those things that people have a terrible time understanding, so your job will be to help them walk through it.
Insurance is always changing, so there are so many opportunities to learn more and grow in your position. There is an unlimited income potential depending on how well you can sell and how hard you are willing to work.
You will not get paid a straight hourly or salary; commission leaves you the opportunity to grow your income by your standards.
Recognition and Rewards
Who doesn’t like to be recognized for their work? What is really exciting is being recognized for your sales goals.
You can become an MDRT Agent (million dollar round table) if you earn a million dollars in commission in one calendar year.
If you earn three times the MDRT amount you are considered a COT agent (Court of Table) and six times the MDRT amount is TOT Agent (top of table).
These recognition are highly esteemed and can earn you an invitation to the annual MDRT Convention. The great thing about the annual convention is that you get a first look at some great innovation and you get to meet with other MDRT agents from other nations to see what they are doing that might help improve your business.
If you are looking for a steady career with unlimited income potential, a great work life balance, being able to grow within your career continually, and making a difference in people’s lives, this may be an excellent option for you.
