I've been contacted by a State Farm Executive recruiter. They are looking for me to take over an established branch.



What are some of the considerations of a position like this? Financial products are a part of the solution, but also PnC, disability, etc.

Thanks brother. Suppose stay on target with what I was doing.

I would take a hard look at state farm.  I would want to know the p&c residuals.  You will need to push life ins. pretty hard for them, much more pressure than a brokerage firm.  Currently, all they offer are state farm mutual funds & va's which are decent, but most brokers would like more variety.  If you want to be a P&C guy, I think they are the best.

Thanks Henry ... that's good feedback. The package frankly seems pretty darn good; I'd be walking into a producing office and running it for them. At my current production levels, it would represent huge increases. I know insurance guys can make large.
 
But when it's all said and done ... mostly PnC doesn't work for me. On top of that ... I've worked in a world where nobody tells me what to sell in the morning. I can't change that.

You're right . I did PC years ago. Huge LIFE pressure, and PnC is price, price, price and then worry about some underwriter! do not do it
