Are you a solopreneur insurance agent?

According to U.S. Census data, more than 20 million one-person businesses exist in the United States. That figure accounts for more than three-fourths of all American businesses. Quite a significant number! Are YOU a solopreneur insurance agent? We have some great insight from other entrepreneurs who have gone solo and soared.

Here are a few lessons you can apply to help you grow your one-person insurance agency:

Identify and grab unique opportunities. Solve problems creatively. View roadblocks as opportunities to learn and grow.

Don’t beat around the bush. If you’re working with a prospect, get your insurance quote to him or her as soon as possible. Ask who else they are considering for their insurance needs. Offer an honest consultation, weighing the pros and cons of your insurance coverage options and the others. Your openness will be a breath of fresh air.

Expand your network. As a solo insurance pro, rekindling dated connections and building new ones are vital to the growth of your insurance business. If you make customer relationships a priority, happy customers will become happy, repeat customers and send all the referrals you’ll need to take your business to the next level.

Know and commit to your vision. Do you want to remain a soloist? Or do you see yourself adding a few key employees as you build your insurance business? What is your “big picture” outlook? One must plan for success, so put it down on paper and create measurable milestones.

Whether you’re a solopreneur or a serial entrepreneur juggling multiple companies, you WILL be successful if you put your mind to it. Focus on turning these lessons into habits and YOU will soar!
