One of my heroes, John Savage, CLU, said that he figured the founders of the insurance industry were three guys: One owned a paper mill, the second owned a printing press, and the third owned a plaque factory. There's some truth in that.
During my career, I've noticed another cottage industry designed to separate producers from their hard earned money: Sales systems! Marketing systems! Seminar systems! Prospecting systems! They are often sold by people who have never used them, who have no track record, or worse, no industry experience. With rare exception, these "get rich quick" schemes only make the system seller rich, not the financial advisor out in the field.

Plus, rejection comes with the territory, and everyone's ego is so fragile these days. Perhaps that's the fault of the war on boys promulgated by the NEA and NOW bunch, or maybe it's the "get happy" pill society we're living in.
