The best parts of entrepreneurship — the independence, flexibility, and ownership — can also be its biggest challenges when you try to learn everything about the industry yourself. You should not have to be a business prodigy just to strike out on your own. That is why FFS has laid out the path to success by building a multi-faceted training program, with platforms like our Success Tracks™ online learning curriculum, regular sales webinars and in-person training at live events throughout the year.
Our comprehensive training system is designed to get new agents licensed, building their team, and making money within their first 90 days at FFS. This multi-faceted approach to training can be used as a blueprint from day one to year five as agents build their businesses. It is also a resource for diving deep into specific subjects for veteran agents who want to know the latest on FFS’ systems and technologies, carrier products, insurance regulations and more.
Success Tracks™ walks you through the three principles of the FFS Business Building System – Build, Lead and Sell – step-by-step. Each Track acts as a full set of online video- and text-based lessons on essential topics from how to get started as an agent to in-depth guides to annuities and how to lead your team. The courses contain quizzes and assignments to ensure you retain the information for when you put it into action building your business. It also offers reports to track your team’s progress through the system so you can see who might need help. Never question how to onboard a recruit or guide them to building a business of their own — Success Tracks™ lays it out for them.
With Success Tracks™, every agent understands how to sell products, grow their team, and lead their team to success with FFS. Nobody knows everything right off the bat, and we make sure our resources are available to access whenever you may need them—simply select one of our Tracks to get started.
