SAP 123: If you have not helped yourself, you have no capacity to help others

Know why they tell you to put your own mask on, first, on an airplane before helping someone else put theirs on? If you have no capacity to help – if you’re empty – YOU CAN’T HELP OTHERS.

Success IS a choice.

SAP 122: How to Make Million$ in Insurance! $$$$$$$

I see young, new agents all the time talking about what is the fastest way to making a million dollars per year in the insurance industry. If money is your single, solitary reason for existence, I believe you will fail. It is not a big enough motivator to go through what you have to go through in order to succeed. It’s just not.

However, when the focus changes to how many people you can help, the money takes care of itself. You literally lose track of how much money you’re making. When the bills are paid and you find yourself giving to people, constantly, you figure out that yes, there really is more to life than just accumulating things. The strange thing is, though, once you’re at this stage, it begins to grow even faster.

So, from the beginning – the best advice I can give anyone just starting in business – focus on what you can do for other people. Get seriously passionate about treating your business like an obsession instead of like a JOB. Act like your life depends on it.
Behave as though FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION merely from the energy you are devoting to helping more people.

Then, just like magic, you’ll have all the money you need first. Then you’ll have all the money you could possibly want… IF you started for the right reasons.

SAP 066: Keep getting the SAME objection?

There’s a reason for that.
From Grand Cayman today..answered two support tickets that might help someone else.
? 1) What is THE script?

First, scripts can be found on this page to start the conversation, and there is also a flow chart at the top of the page for the call flow:
https://medicareagenttraining.com/tra…

You can hear Joe’s awesome interview and his effective cold call presentation here:
https://medicareagenttraining.com/cold-call-demonstration-with-joe-from-florida/

? 2) Keep getting the same objection and are losing the sale because of it.

You need to raise this continually-arising issue before they do. It should be addressed IN your presentation of whichever plan you are describing. If you leave it out, or describe it in weak or unresolved terms, it will continue to plague the sale. If you SOLIDLY incorporate the solution, in proper context, DURING the explanation of the an, it will not be a problem.

This is a good example video of this concept:

So, as we leave the Cayman Islands and head to Mexico to explore the Mayan ruins tomorrow, I hope you are having a great week!

SAP 063: Sample Agent Video Consultation

http://MedicareAgentTraining.com

These are small clips of an agent consultation February 6, 2019. As these are questions I get quite frequently, I wanted to pull them out and post them here, publicly. The opinions in this video are my own and just opinions based on experience. The statements made are not intended for any audience other than those in the consultation and may or may not apply to you.

My agency exists to help seniors through their challenges of finding their best Medicare insurance plan and to help like-minded agents to do the same when there is a fit of working together. I do not choose to help ALL seniors and do not choose to help ALL agents.

This is a lifestyle business where I am reinvigorated by the ability to help people every single day! See what we’re doing at https://MedicareAgentTraining.com for agents and https://SeniorSavingsNetwork.org for seniors

SAP 046: It’s about Community | Help with Insurance Sales

It’s about community – we need interaction with people at various stages of their business to be reminded that we are in business FOR ourselves but not BY ourselves. You are not alone!

This business can make one feel alone and isolated. We have to break through that, reach out and make relationships, and encourage each other. Don’t suffer in silence. You are going through what we have all gone through but there is a light at the end of the tunnel and it’s called RESIDUAL INCOME. Yes, it’s worth it.

Happy Independence Day! I hope you all have an AMAZING July 4th with your loved ones!

SAP 033: When to Hire Extra Help in Your Medicare Business

This is the question submitted by one of our members, and it is asking when to hire additional help as the business is starting to grow. (Read by speech-to-text with the computer voice!)

“So, I re-watched your video from a couple weeks ago about delegating authority. I know that I am very new, but I am trying to streamline the learning curve as quickly as possible and grow the business as fast as I can. I wanted to ask your advice…

If I were to hire one person now to help me, could you give me an idea of what duties would be most important?

1) Should I hire a licensed agent or an administrative person? Or hire somebody to perform admin duties who is also licensed so he/she can also write business?
2) How do you recommend I pay them? (hourly, flat fee per deals, etc.??)
3) Do you pay your staff as independent contractors, or do you W2 them and pay payroll taxes, etc?

I am currently working all day from about 7:30am until well into the night sometimes 10-11pm trying to do all my administrative chores while making cold calls in the am, and during the peak hours in the pm, and also following up on all the calls my telemarketers set up for me throughout the day (I bought trained telemarketers through http://TrainedTelemarketers.com )

I started doing this full time in the middle of October. So the first couple months were a bit slow, and now things are starting to come together, but I want to automate and delegate more. 2 weeks ago I had 5 new applications and last week I had 6. This week I have 0 so far. My goal each week is 7 new apps. I have not hit it yet. I’ll be happy if I hit 20 for the month. I’m having good conversations but I hoping you can give me suggestions to improve. I’d like to know how your business is set up. Perhaps your operation is too big, but maybe something like the way Eugene has set his up is something I can model. It’s my understanding he has himself, one or 2 agents and an admin person.

So if I could only afford to bring on one person now, where would my money be best spent, or am I putting the cart before the horse?”
