OK here is the thing....
I am a elementary school teacher. I love it, problem is that there are NO full time jobs or even part time, besides subbing a few days a month around me. So this spring I took a sales job. I am good at it, and I like it because I get to come and go as I like and talk to a lot of different kind of people.
The pay is good (better than teaching) but there are not many benefits yet. Now, being that I have already settled for a sales job and found that I am pretty good at it. I figured I would check out other sales jobs. I contacted my local Aflac (yes the duck) agency when they advertised for sales people. I went to the first interview, and I was shocked at the potential income and also that you are INDEPENDANT agents and not hired by Aflac. So, here is my delima
I have been offered a 2nd interview with them and I am supposed to bring my spouse so they can talk to both of us. It is in 2 weeks. I have not told my current employer just because I do not want to raise any flags that I *may* end up leaving in a few months, and honestly it isnt any of his business...lol
But should I stay where I am and have a gauranteed income monthly or take a risk and pursue this other option? I mean the income from selling Aflac would be over double what I make now and there is much flexibility with it since I am independant.
We are already financially stable and do not *NEED* my income, although it sure helps with other things. But the flexibility and potential additional income with Aflac are also appealing. But there is much risk as far as income with it. So does anyone here sell, or know anyone who sells Aflac? What do they say? How do they like it? How long have they been doing it? I mean I need advice...HELP!!!!
T.I.A. for all your help
