"The Allstate Agent & Alumni Social Network"
It seems like many of the posters on here (myself included) are worried about the "chip" in the new required machines that we have to get. Much like the rest of you, I often work from home or take my computer home, which until recently, hasn't been…Continue
It's certainly not for everyone. With Allstate, you are in business for yourself, but not by yourself. Some like having the captive backbone in place and that is the beauty of the marketplace, different options for different business needs. For…Continue

This is the stuff that drives me insane about Home Office. I know they don't serve in the field but it makes you wonder what they do in their meetings.So they're getting rid of the PDP for life leads which while not perfect at least allowed you to…Continue

I was terminated on 2/1/2011, had received letters (remember those). We started Independent Agency from home completely in wife's name in July 2010, but really did not have appointments in place until November. This really cost us dearly in our…Continue

Disclaimer: I'm not a lawyer but I've seen one on TV. An Ex-agent, TPP'd beginning of 2014, contacted me to ask my advice. He was doing well but was just tired of the BS, specifically the IPS BS and left when the original 2015 quotas were…Continue

Does anyone remember and i think it was in 2009 when TC at the regional pow wows at the beginning of the year said this?
I dont know about anyone else but when i say something i do it.
How come we dont hear anything about this anymore?
They have the nerve to make such a bold (riduculous) statement and TC is over halfway to that mark and where does TC stand in relation to this goal?
I see 30% less agents from that time to now and less market share.
I'm proud to announce that I've established a close working relationship with Empowered Agent which I'm sure you've figured out by now. They have 2 banner ads here on the site as well as 2 videos to your right. Below is a "copy paste" from their website. Empowered Agent is "family". It's my hope that you get to know them!

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
