Hello Ted. I am thrilled to have found this site. I am a new subscriber and literally just started using it.
I just passed my exam. I have been offered an Independent Agent position with an Independent Insurance Agency in the area. He has offered me a small percentage to increase as the number of policies I sell increases. Clearly, whatever I sell, he will make commission on also. Yes?
For some reason, I am suddenly confused. Do I have to work through someone else or can I apply for appointment with different Insurers to sell their products on my own? If so, is there a commission structure with the companies directly that offers me this structure or would it be a much better structure.
Thank you in advance for your advice. (Watch for your answer in comments box--Ted)
