    Insurance involves licensing and that is regulated by each individual state.

    It sounds like you want to try and be an insurance “broker” vs. “agent”. Broker sells for many companies, agents sell for one.

    The insurance company is the actually holds the licenses. To my knowledge an individual cannot just throw up a sign and become an agent. If you truly are interested contact some of your local insurance companies and ask them about a job their first.

    Then after you become licensed, and gain experience you could attempt to do it on your own, if your state allows it.

    You need to investigate your state laws on insurance agents. Some state require certification.
    Will you be selling a particular company’s insurance? If so then I assume they have certain guidelines you need to follow.
    If you’re talking about you providing insurance – starting your own company – then you will probably need to be bonded and meet your state’s requirements.

    Well first of all, you have to become a licensed insurance agent. Some agengies will hire you up front , then they will sponser you to get your license. I think ameriplan financial services will do it for you. Check your local yellow pages.

    That would be, an agency. First you have to get licensed to sell insurance in your locale. THEN you have to find a company willing to let you sell their insurance.

    If you have no experience, you’ll probably have to go to Met LIfe, or State FArm, or Farmers, or another direct writer to get hired on.

    I have a successful home-based health benefits company, and absolutely love what I do. Email me at, and I can give you some info about how to get started on a very limited budget. My company is very successful and is a member of the BBB.
