Is It Possible To Make Good Money As An Insurance Agent?

Postby Phelan » Sat Oct 07, 2017 3:31 pm

I am considering starting a job as a life insurance agent, and I was wondering, can anyone give me some good advice on what the job is like? I would like to make at least $500 a week, but I just really don't know what to expect. Is that figure realistic? What are some of the best companies to work for? (I have interviews with Prudential and Western Southern). Thanks a lot.

Possible? Yes.


Likely? No.

A realistic figure is $0 (zero).

Any larger figure is not realistic.

Most new agents do not make money.

And I do not mean that it takes a long time.
I mean that they never make money.

Most new agents (between 90% and 100%) do not make enough to stay in the field for a year, and have to leave sooner.

my concern would be in tough times like this, people dont overload on insurance at all. a lot of insurance places are hurting because of the recession.

Quite possible over the course of a year.
BUT, you won't make it consistently week in and week out.

You can but you have to work your rear end off.
So, if your not willing to work really, really, really hard, I would not waste your time.
But if you are willing, you can make a lot of money.
