Become an independent insurance agent: earn back your freedom

Are you a captive insurance agent and feeling constrained by the insurance company you work for? Become an independent insurance agent and earn back your freedom. Being an insurance agent can be a fun and rewarding career; but why limit yourself to the constraints of only being able to offer your clients the product of one company. It really is like going hunting with only 1 arrow in your quiver. Once you use that 1 arrow, if you miss your target, you are done. Being an independent insurance agent is like having dozens of arrows in your quiver. If you miss with the first, you go to the second, third, and forth arrows, until you find the quote and product that is going to work best for your client. How great is that. You no longer have to try and fit that square peg into a round hole, which is sometimes how it feels as a captive agent, your doing your best, just sometimes you don’t have the right tools. As an independent agent, you will be able to do what is best for your clients and make a comfortable living as a professional. You’ll enjoy your career again. We know, most of us at IPA were former captive insurance agents ourselves.

But being an independent agent isn’t completely without its challenges. Each carrier you are appointed with will have certain production requirements. The more carriers you have, the more mouths you will be required to feed.
