People will always need insurance whether its for their car, home, pet or even travel, the insurance industry touches all aspects of life and that wont change.

In a recent U.S News and World Report article featuring 'Best Jobs of 2017,' Insurance Agent ranked #4 on their list. As Big I president Bob Rusbuldt said: "The lifestyle of an independent insurance agent is perfectly suited to someone who has the ability to do different things, who wants control over their schedule, and who wants to be involved in their community."
