I have the means to be successful here. But my situation is rare. If I had to do it all over again, I would never consider brightway. I watched every agent in my training class fail in the first 12-18 months.

Their sales pitch. "You sell, we service."

The salesman lied. Brightway doesnt service policies. They charge WAAYYY too much for doing nothing except providing a recognizable brand. Their systems are a joke, expensive, and they over charge for them(for extra profit.)

It's a broken system because the original contract is structured to ensure likely failure, so that brightway can take everything and then still collect on the debt owed. Be aware, you own NOTHING. You are a glorified employee. Brightway is the "agent of record" on everything, which means Brightway owns everything(and controls everything) and can kick you out without cause. As well, if you dont seriously succeed in the first 1-2 years, you will find yourself giving all your clients to brightway in exchange for nothing, and you'll owe them a substantial amount of money. Sometimes, they "allow" you to work it off by becoming an employee for 6 months. And then you cant do anything in insurance for the next 2 years.
