I spent some time in NY this past summer and I had a run-in with a WFG recruit at lunch. She liked my social skills and noted I can be making 50k/ month without a college education. We exchanged information (email and cell #) and she told me when I turn 18 I can start working with her. She recently contacted me upon arrival of my 18th birthday and said we will have to arrange a meeting where... Read more

I was recruited by a WFG Marketing Director that also tried to be a friend. I made him money with my warm market and he kept preaching the dream. He also probably broke the law by saying he would pay me under the table since I was not yet licensed. Never saw a dime. It became apparent that this is just a recruiting business pretending the help people with finances. Eventually the marketing... Read more

The average person is unaware that they are in possession of valuable marketing information: the names of your friends and family. World Financial Group has their recruits set up 10 "training" appointments with those friends and family. (AKA: "Warm Market", people very likely to allow you to meet with them) You set up the appointments BEFORE you get your insurance license so only your "trainer"... Read more

My neighbor is an 'agent' and I use that term rather loosely. After being visited in person and called several times, my mother nagged me into going to check out what the sweet girl next door wanted to talk about. Once I came into the barren office, I was asked some questions about my life, but I could tell the 'marketing director' wasn't really listening. He tried to sell me the company by... Read more

Most of you new "associates" will only bring a few of your friends and family on as clients. Then you'll realize you'll never build a decent income because you're simply not cut out for it. You're competing against real financial advisors, with real financial credentials, working at real financial companies. You'll get sucked in by the pitch of "unlimited potential"..."be your own boss"...and... Read more

Yes you have to do your homework and get your State Insurance license. However, WFG is primarily about bringing on new recruits ALL THE TIME! Selling insurance and other financial products is just the "means to an end"; "the end" is of course recruiting. This business model results in high turnover of "associates". I think WFG has a self-defeating effect on itself. People hear the term WFG... Read more

The reason they are still in existence is because of their brilliant marketing structure... Top 10? Means lets get sub-par products for your closest family and friends, lets not show them the guaranteed column of the illustrations but rather focus on the exaggerated numbers based on some high compounding interest rate... The Top 10: when your family members realize that their product isn't... Read more
