Sharpen your saw

It’s a term my father would tell me when I grew up. He has sold Life insurance for 45 years and now I’m Marketing it. This podcast will add value to your sales and your professional growth.

Valuable information

In today’s world of insurance it’s always good to hear what’s working well and what’s not. To hear agents speak from all over gives us insight on what today’s top performers are doing to maximize production. Very insightful and definitely recommend!
