Selling life insurance would be horrible

I know a few people who have left PA for northwestern mutual and are financial advisors / life insurance salespeople. They don’t hate it, the money is good and the lifestyle beats PA by a mile. All comes down to what your network looks like and whether you’re comfortable selling.

Every time I drive through one of those rich areas with all the big houses, nice cars, and trendy restaurants I always say to myself “why the hell didn’t you become a doctor, lawyer, partner at a big multinational consulting firm, or one of those guys who makes it big selling life insurance?” I understand your struggle my friend. You know what they say in the life insurance business — “As long as they keep on dyin’ they will keep on buyin’.” You might have also heard the industry line about rich people and life insurance policies, “They carry ‘em until we burry ‘em.” Needless to say, guaranteed $$$ in the big life insurance business. 😉

I had an internship with northwestern mutual in college and got out quickly when I realized how sales focused it was. I did not want to sell life insurance to all of my family and friends. Some people can do really well with it but it wasn’t for me.

My original comment was more of a thought process, as in ‘why am I using my talents to make very average money when there are way less demanding job for way more pay’.. not complaining about my career path, just food for thought

Got offered a consulting job with CFGI for a manager position (12% raise). I don’t like Audit anymore and it just makes me unhappy. It impacts my health a lot.
