I am an aspiring insurance agent…and I have to say that this piece of article really helped me clear my head. Is there anyone I can talk to about a few things?

Looks like going independent is the winning deal! Do you think everyone should take the independent route?

Hello there! Definitely agree with that! Regarding your question, it depends on a person. Some enjoy independence where as some are happy as a captive agent. At the end of the day, it is up to the person.

Hello, thank you for your question! Compared to a captive agent, you will have more benefits as an independent agent. For instance, you will have access to a larger market, and will be able to provide your clients more options with best deals and rates. Reach out to us here if you have any more questions.

Is it viable to start off as a captive agent and then switch to being independent in the current scenario?

Hi! Thank you for your question. That career path is a good option but there can be many factors that can affect it such as your location, time, and even how you personally feel about it. Even though there are pros and cons to both, in the end it depends on your choice and how comfortable you are with it.
