Let me, Rustam Dashevskyy the President of EssentialCare Insurance Agency, share my very own experience starting with the career of Independent Medicare Insurance Agent. In the earliest stage of my career, I worked as a relationship coordinator at an insurance company where I learned about the health insurance license that allows to sell Medicare Products to clients. After obtaining the health insurance license I had a very hard time wrapping my head around how exactly I should start. In today's very competitive market it is very rare to get trusted advice. Browsing through hundreds of web pages looking for information, I was not able to grasp where to start. After spending a while looking for and trying to put many pieces of scattered information together, I was truly happy to find a mentor who helped me understand all parts of this business, how profitable it could be, and facilitated in becoming a successful Medicare agent.
To be successful in this career, it does not only require having ability to sell, but to be up to date with the industry's regulations, and to know all the needy and greedy of the field. In addition, every agent has to consider the importance of customer satisfaction.
