Young Insurance Agents Like Being Their Own Boss

On April 27, the Insurance Journal shared the results of what young agents (those aged 40 and younger) like most and least about the insurance industry and being agents. (Source: http://www.insurancejournal.com/news/national/2016/04/27/404152.htm) The good news is the optimism that young agents have about their insurance careers. Among the reasons young insurance agents like their profession is the ability to be their own boss.

Many young agents value being their own boss and some have been given considerable autonomy by their agency owners. However, this is not always the case for all young agents. Considering the possibility of agency acquisitions or other ownership-related changes, a young agent may actually lose some of that autonomy through no fault of their own.

Typically, for the insurance agent in their 30s or 40s there comes a point to consider the next step. Often this leads to a desire to start their own insurance agency. For many though, transitioning from a Producer to Agency Owner is overwhelming.

SIA of Northern Ohio has helped many young agents transition from producer and sales roles into agency ownership. Using SIAA’s proven solution, over 3,400 insurance professionals have made their dream of creating their own agency a reality.

Young insurance agents that want to be their own boss have the opportunity by working with SIA of Northern Ohio to:
