Hello.

I would like to take a few minutes to introduce myself and hopefully open the floor for any tips or advice.

My name is Janyna Russelburg and I am a Medicare agent who's been through one AEP so far. I started in June 2024 with a national insurance agency that turned out to not be a good fit for me. I moved to a locally-run agency in January 2024 so I am working on building up my book of business.

Prior to this career change I was a special education teacher for 17 years. I am trying to use the skills I acquired through my education and teaching experience to do whatever I can to help people navigate the confusing aspects of Medicare. I'm also a special needs mom so I understand some aspects of insurance and hope to build trust with clients this way.

It's nice to be here and I'm looking forward to learning a lot. Thank you!

Welcome! You likely have more patience than any person on this forum which I think would help a lot with Medicare education.
 
I appreciate you saying that. :)
I would strongly advise you to build your book of business on non duals / lis for the future . Many of those plans stand a very good chance of being administered by state Medicaid in the next 1-3 yrs . Go the t-65 route possibly doing seminars. It’s also much more stable longer term less moving business

Welcome to the forums, lots of great advice here. I think your teaching and education background will be helpful.... that's really all we do.


Eventually you will learn to ask questions and present things to people in a manner, where they dont have any objections.

Zig Ziglar used to say, "if the problem is big enough, they'll want you to solve it!"

We just help people solve problems, even if we have to help them identify it first.
 
Two points.
1 Welcome Jrusselburg. I’m rather new here also. Been here about a month or so. I think you’ll like it.

2 to GoPokes. WOW Zig! I’ve been a follower for decades. I had all his tapes (remember tapes?). Still have all his books, and saw him in person three times. What a great loss when he passed.

Best thing to remember in this business is “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”
