Weekly Agent Spotlight - Eric Schmidt

Family First Life would like to formally recognize Eric Schmidt as our agent of the week! Eric is currently #17 in the company with $239,461 in IP production!


We spoke with Eric to get some insight on his current goals, as well as how he was able to start producing a lot so quickly:

You started with FFL in December, how were you able to start producing a lot in a short amount of time?

"I worked very closely with my VP, Eric Anthony, who helped me lay out a lead plan and schedule. Then I just made sure to implement it.

Since you don't come from an insurance background, how were you able to immediately understand the concept of investing in leads?

"My upline, Eric, made it very simple/straightforward. I put $500 towards Everquote leads, and they matched it with another $500. Then I used my commissions from my first few sales to continue to reinvest in leads."

What did part-time look like for you and when did you decide to go full time?


"When I was part-time with FFL I was still working in the auto industry and putting in around 35 hours with FFL. I went full time when I realized that I could duplicate what I was making in the auto industry for less hours here.

What is your goal for 2019 with FFL?


"My goal is to become a hall of fame producer and have four sales managers in my downline."

FFL is extremely thankful for Eric as well as all of our top producers! We hope that others who may be struggling will find some encouragement and advice that will help increase their own sales.
