A career in Life insurance and Financial Planning pays big dividends

Written by Michael Lecky on Monday, 06 October 2014. Posted in Blog

It is interesting that people, who are successful in the financial services business, will tell you, if they had to do it all again they wouldn’t change their career for anything. How could this be when we know that one of the fundamentals of our business model is marketing? And, we know marketing is not the easiest job in the world, right? Every day insurance and financial advisors face rejection as they offer financial solutions that help clients protect their family’s income through Disability and Critical illness insurance and secure their retirement through wealth accumulation plans and pension planning. No one would say that it is the easiest business, however, it is easily the most rewarding. Especially, if you care about people, because families and businesses see real benefit from the work insurance and financial planners do every day in creating a financial roadmap to guide them through one of the most challenging economic times ever.
For the right person, the career is not just personally rewarding, but financially rewarding as well. Business income is made; from the sale of financial products, to preparing detailed wealth management and accumulation programs and helping clients choose the right income protection plans. Sure it’s commission income but the income potential is far greater than you could earn from salary. The business can be difficult for agents to navigate and they need to find a supportive environment where they can engage in mindshare meetings with other advisors and experts in the business.

Generally speaking setting up a business as an insurance and financial advisor gives you the ability to offer financial solutions that make a difference in people’s lives.
