The most common piece of pushback I’ve received over the last week, since announcing the formation of my insurance agency, Rogue Risk, is this:
“Good luck getting carrier appointments!”
While there is no doubt the carrier appointment struggle is real for start-up agencies, this feels like one of the smaller obstacles a scratch agency has to overcome.
In fact, the whole concept of start-up agency owners begging for carrier appointments feels backward to me. Shouldn’t it be the agency that chooses the carrier?
In episode 002 of The Inside, I talk through how I’ll attack the carrier appointment obstacle as well as where the name, Rogue Risk, came from…
Here is a list of the resources mentioned in episode 002 of The Inside:
- Cincinnati Insurance
- Central Insurance
- Safeco Insurance
- Attune Insurance
- Jason Cass
- Nicholas Ayers
- Wess Anderson
- 99 Designs
- Legal Zoom
We’re just getting started. Rogue Risk literally just became a real operating entity this week which means each week, twice a week, we’ll be sharing new updates and insights right here on The Inside.
