This is a difficult question in the life insurance industry . Generally, first-line agents are the people who deal with the public . If you do not have direct contracts from the agency, they write that insurance through a broker .

Cool in the industry , you should probably work in a brokerage in the first place. You will learn about the industry and product options out there. Once you have a good understanding of your products, you can try to sell them.

Brokerages want individuals with experience, while companies that make direct appointments are fine with the rookies. But how can you sell if you do not know about the products . This is a chicken and egg situation .
