Ok, have a meeting with a representative with WFG. I had seen an ad on Craigslist about being an entrepreneur in the Insurance Industry. Answered the ad, no resume, no references or anything. Get a call from a representative and am told I have the necessary experience and I am already licensed, so that is not an issue. Was told by the rep, that he places an ad everyday in Craigslist but words them all differently and has been doing this for the better part of 2011. Met with the representative, and he told me he had three people currently working for him. (In this economy, you run an ad everyday for the better part of a year and only have three people working with you????)
One person was located in Maryland, I am in Florida and the other two were in Florida. He also mentioned that he didn't hear back from one of his recruits in Florida. So he has two people??? He told me to come up with a list of possible prospects/recruits about wanting to get involved in this kind of business. I wouldn't know anybody who would be interested in this type of business and really wouldn't feel comfortable about talking about it. I've heard this so many times in the insurance industry, "Just tell your friends that you are embarking on a NEW CAREER and that you would like to talk to them about it. My friends aren't that ***, to know what that implies. He showed me pamphlets with three different marketing strategies and asked me which one I was interested in, just met the man, I think I should have been able to read them and not go by title alone. Also, he told me he would like me to go to a convention this February and I am sure it would be at my own expense.
Vague answers, working towards the dream, recruiting people etc. is not really my idea of an entrepreneur and definitely not my idea of a job.
