With this kind of talk, you should be speaking to a therapist. Not getting staffed on a role is par for the course here, and is going to happen multiple times. If your comments here seriously convey how you're feeling, go talk to someone professionally. Nobody here is responsible for making you feel better, and likely none of us will be able to anyways.

P&C focused people: What do you do to find success cross-selling life policies? I mostly sell P&C off internet leads. Most are not the ideal client for my company but I take care of them like I would anyone else. I do okay but not great with life after having the client for six months once I move them into a preferred policy. That move saves them enough to make life doable coupled with established trust. I’ve been told just to quote the auto and life together initially but it feels “off” to me.

How does your firm calculate your pay each year? Is there clear quantification of successful marketing/client development efforts, time towards client billing responsibilities, time towards leadership responsibilities, your billed and collected time, and work you delegate to others? If so, how is it broken down? Is it quantified throughout the year to tabulate how you’re doing, so you can forecast a likely year-end amount for yourself? In other words, how is your number baked up each year?
