3 Key Points:

  1. A lack of new agents having mentors and a lack of elder agents supplying mentorship hurts the insurance agency. 
  2. Less is more. Chris Greene is only using three pieces of technology for his business. 
  3. People don’t like what they don’t know and when they don’t know something it causes an anxiety and anxiety causes fear and means they are going to fight, take flight, or stand their ground to it.
