"NOT TO BE TO TRUSTING WITH AGENCY OWNER."
GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING, SIGNED BY ALL PARTIES AND NO MATTER WHAT, NEVER SIGN A NON-COMPETE AGREEMENT. I used to be proud of helping people/clients with their insurance needs because there were a lot of choices to help those clients and now with the Affordable Care Act I am just trying to find any kind of coverage that might be affordable and it doesn't work out so well with the folks that don't qualify for the "Government/Taxpayers" subsidy.
