If we do our jobs and the client becomes totally financially independent then honestly life insurance for someone like that is pointless other than for estate planning or LTC/hybrid purposes. P&C guys will push life policies from cradle to grave but not for me. Most of the time term will get you done.

Why?

I’d buy some on myself. What’s the point of this question?

Partner 1, YOU ARE CORRECT! *ding ding ding*. Somebody help me out here I need to sell ONE more policy! side note: I already bought two for myself

I would call her people who I’ve called before and didn’t give me a hard no. I would consider those warmer leads than hitting up “some off the streets."

Did that already and they said no *shakes head*

Life insurance is good for everyone!

Ameriprise, how could it not be?

You don’t think it’s important for someone to provide for a spouse or children if they die?!

I know that if I do my job as their trusted advisor, the widow and/or heirs will have the peace of mind that they are taken care of. Then as long as we’ve got a plan in place (that is on track) and we team up together....then that’s way more valuable than some life insurance check.

You asking 2 different questions. Yea most times you need insuranc for the income earners to protect their families. But your statement that insurance is good for every one is just not so. That's cookie cutter and a sign of a sales person and not a planner.

Booz Allen Hamilton rescinded my offer because my current firm will not waive the non-compete clause in our employee agreement. It was allegedly a capability hire, and not tied to a particular project. I work one level above entry level, and really shouldn’t even have such a restrictive non-compete. I’ve already resigned, and would prefer to be unemployed rather than continue working here. • MPH, Secret clearance, 3 YOE in govt consulting (Military Health), Deloitte Alum

I am just starting year 4 as an associate doing 100% med mal defense trial work. I know our insurance guidelines require partners to do a lot with so much $$$ on the line, but in 3+ years, I have only: attended 36 depos (12/yr or 1/mo) of those 36, I: noticed 3 (1/yr) and presented 3 (1/yr) I have attended 1 mediation and tried 1 small claims “trial” I feel like I am losing my attorney skills, rather than improving them. Can I expect more opportunities or do I need to make a switch?
