Today's episode is all about the evils of working with companies that turn out to be major disappointments. Who are we talking about specifically?
Well, we're not gonna name names here. Not today.
Really our plan here is just to sort of weave together our experiences of dealing with life insurance companies on a day-to-day basis. Most of our audience tends to be other agents or financial professionals.
That being said, we kinda figure that you'll be nodding your head in agreement while listening to this. And if not, maybe you'll find it amusing in a sad kinda way.
Our problems dealing with companies, carriers, or whatever nomenclature best suits your fancy today, are really nagging problems. You know, like a knee that aches when the barometric pressure's just right?
Make no mistake, we like life insurance and we're all-in on the industry. Hopefully, that's obvious at this point.
But two things can be true at the same time. We can be huge fans of life insurance, the good it does for our clients while we're disappointed, frustrated and exasperated with all it takes to get simple things done correctly at the home office.
It's just that some problems won't go away, the same ones…repeatedly. We've brushed against this topic before and we have multiple firsthand examples of the difficulties.
Listen to hear all about it.
