Why Become an Insurance Agent

Posted by Chad Alldredge on Tuesday, February 25, 2014 Under: Careers

When searching for a career that might fit you personally it is important to search for something that will fulfill you. The best job you can find for yourself is one that does not feel like a job at all but more like a hobby that you are paid for. For someone who genuinely enjoys helping people and creating relationships, insurance sales is a definite viable option.

In the economy we live in it is difficult to find a career that is stable that you can count on in which you can provide for yourself and a family. The average adult changes careers anywhere from 3 to 7 times in their lifetime. You could say this is directly correlated to an unstable work force in which it is almost impossible to find a job and a company that will treat you well and continue to help you grow and thrive through your career.

This is possibly the biggest reason why people have decided to be their own boss and take hold of their own future. According to the department of labor statistics there is about a 10% growth of insurance agents foreseen up to the year 2022. Many people have made the decision that they do not want their goals and aspirations tied down and ceilinged by other individuals.

Those who are excited to interact with people every day are attracted to this line of work. And although you can find many occupations where you are able to converse and create relationships with many new people daily, becoming an insurance agent in one where you can truly help people by providing a need for them and their family. Many times insurance sales dovetails perfectly into financial planning where you can help families climb out of debt and secure for them a wonderful future.

The only way to be successful in this life is to become good at something and work hard to perfect it. No matter what anyone will go into in their life they will need to work to become an expert in their field to realize their financials dreams. Once it is understood a lot of work will go into becoming successful the next question is where can I put my time where my hard work will pay off the most and stay with me the longest? Insurance sales and financial planning is a great way to build residual income and ultimately build your own paycheck. In the end like stated before do something that you will love. Find something where you can feel you are making a difference. If you can find those things in a job you will not feel like you have worked a day in your life.
