Insurance Exam Passed? Check.

OK, so after lots of studying and banging my head against the wall, I finally bit the bullet and took my insurance exam last Thursday. It was no where near as difficult as the quizzes and exams the learning site put me through. They recommend that you make at least an 80 on their finals before you go take the license exam for your state. I could not get that 80, no matter what I did. I don't know how many times I took that exam, but the highest score I ever made was a 76. So of course I just totally ignored their advice and scheduled the state license test anyway. Glad I did.

So, now I get online and sign up for my license. Then I go down to the local police station and get fingerprinted (if they have the electronic scanning type of fingerprint machine that is). After all that is done and I have been officially checked out, I will be going to work for AFLAC. For now, I will have a license to sell health/medical insurance. I have to take the online courses for life insurance before I can schedule the test and get licensed to sell that. Sure is a lot of red tape involved in this stuff.

Maybe by this time next month, I will be making a bit of money. I'm not looking to get rich, just have an at least semi-steady income. I'm sure my bill collectors would appreciate that as well.   LOL
