Fee Schedules

I think someone should have done this a long time ago.  Let's start a list of fee schedules from different carriers and their preferred IA firms.  Everyone should know what companies pay IA's instead of having to learn the hard way.  Anyone have several 2010 fee schedules to start?&nb

Sandy Discussion

So, here we are Sandy is here.  It is really funny how changing jobs from commission to salary changes the perception. When I was a salaried road warrior, I used to beam with joy while seeing those clowns on Weather Channel acting like it's the end of the world. Now, I am a salaried guy working

Your Reading Files

Your closed files are the best example of your work. When you are looking at all the vendors who are not seeking your commitment during this very slow period ask permission to email 5-10 of your best work. The narrative reports will get their attention.

Poor quality report writing

I just wanted to put in my two cents on how to write better reports. Please check these two examples:   Example #1 (poor quality) When I decided to go in the back door the homeowner said we should look in the room on the left and we went in there. The homeowner calls that office and th
