What is the life of an insurance saleman like?
I wanted to join a "company" World Finance Group, part of AEGON. They say they will train me about life insurance and difference securities and how to recruit more employees and customers. So far the membership fees and background check is $100 ! They dont want to reveal how much of this100 goes to membership and how much goes to background check! So far I understand that they customer that I would have would be the people I know. I will use their offices at "any local representatives", I will have to services the accounts of my customers, have them to choose the right investment, mostly life insurrance. Sound an interesting job. I learn business anyway. BUT this whole thing looks more like a scamp or not suitable for me at all! Pay for a membership and then go out and look for customer on my own. They dont reveal to me the average income of their employees, they dont really revea to me how much time and effort one should pay, and whether they would get any customer at all! by the way the website is WorldFinanceGroup.com

I have never heard of them and they aren't on the Aegon website. As far as paying money up front and having to find your own clients, that sounds normal and that's why so many don't make it.

I work for two agents that are independent agents and they have very luxurious life styles. You just have to know the business and how to talk to people. Everyone out there wants/needs insurance. Thats why its one of the most profitable businesses to be in.
