    "Great book on planning for a successful agency"

    I loved this audio. I am buying the book for my library. This is exactly what I needed to plan for an agency that can run even when I am not in the office.

    Story
    "Insurance Anyone?"
    Where does So You Want to Be an Insurance Agent rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a decent read. I would put in the middle


    What did you like best about this story?

    Very insightful and relevant to someone looking to jump into agency or revitalize their own.


    Which character – as performed by Jeffrey L. Hastings – was your favorite?

    Not sure.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    It's insurance, you must be an insurance junkie or really trying to fall asleep.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book and very good content from someone that's helped quite a few agents succeed.

    Story
    "Inspiring and Motivating."

    This is certainly not an "anyone can do this job easily and succeed without effort" kind of message! Mr. Hastings gives advice, tips, motivation and support, while at the same time conveying the real time, energy, sacrifices, and real work involved in starting your own agency/small business.

    Most of the information can apply to any type of business or industry: recruiting, training, managing, tracking, closing, client and employee retention, and good old customer service! Meanwhile, remembering to take care of one's personal relationships and physical/mental health, which is crucial for true success.

    He also provides industry specific tools and information for anyone to use when becoming an insurance agent.

    Mr. Hastings has given anyone who is considering this venture everything he or she would need to begin with eyes open and armed for success!
