Stolen from elsewhere on Facebook: “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”

Let me get this straight, I'm supposed to pay $1,500 (plus travel and expenses) for the CCC to train my LSPs to write crappy business, that will generate quick sales, but will sink my profitability numbers in a few months. And thereby, further reduce what little bonus I'm expecting next year. Am I missing something?
The Extra Hands Outbound Calling Education…
According to the forecasting tool, as of the end of June in the SE Region, a total of 5 "At Scale" agents were on pace for a bonus score of 3.0 or better, along with 12 "Growing to Scale" agents. That's a total of 17 agents on pace for the Forum for the whole region!
Countrywide, there are currently 54 "At Scale" agents on pace for Forum.
They've definitely solved the problem of not having a big enough boat. But the trips are a minor problem. The big story is that the bonus is…Continue

So - 6/1/14 is my last day as an EA with Allstate Insurance Companies. While this day has come much earlier than I had originally anticipated, I face it with joy and tears at the same time. I won't go into all the details at this time, just suffice it to say that I will still be on the blog, reading all and commenting when I think it will mean something. The best of luck to everyone. And remember, "Noli illigitemi carborundum decendus".
