WORDS OF WISDOM
“Be thankful that you don’t already have
everything you desire. If you did, what would there
be to look forward to?”
~ Author Unknown
Source: http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~homespun/tpoems2.html
Charles Mankamyer
Senior Vice President / General Agents
yourself and your customers. Don’t
let anyone or anything stand in your
way. You have the potential for
greatness; you just have to believe it
and follow through on that belief.
“So many of our dreams at first seem
impossible, then they seem improbable,
and then, when we summon the will,
they soon become inevitable.”
~Christopher Reeve, 1952-2004
I read this quote the other day by the
late actor Christopher Reeve. Most
of you probably remember him in his
movie role as Superman. But it was
after an equestrian accident in 1995
leaving him a quadriplegic that he
demonstrated to the world what a
real Superman he was.
Fortunately, most of you will never
have to deal with a devastating
accident like Christopher Reeve. But
I believe all of you can take a lesson
from him. He never gave up. Until the
end of his life, he never gave up hope
that someday he might walk again,
and he fought for years to raise public
awareness and federal funding for
spinal cord injuries.
ATTITUDE MATTERS!
It’s that same spirit of never giving
up that will make you a top producer.
We are still in the Medicare Annual
Enrollment Period (AEP). This is the
time to become a Super Hero for
There’s no avoiding it. Attitude
is, and always will be, the most
important factor in creating success.
Thinking positively about yourself,
your capabilities, and your career
translates into competence to your
customers. And that competence
then develops into a mutually
trusting relationship between the
two of you ... a relationship that can
last a lifetime.
GET MOTIVATED!
Motivation is tremendously
important to creating the right kind
of attitude. As the late Zig Ziglar
said, “People often say that motivation
doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing,
that's why we recommend it daily.” One
of the best ways to stay motivated
is to periodically attend our weekly
training webinars. Our Trainers,
Directors, and Recruiters will help you
stay motivated by providing you with
the most up-to-date information on
products, prospecting, selling tips,
handling objections, etc. If you feel
your selling skills aren’t as top-notch
as you want them to be, they can
help you improve them. If you want
to become more knowledgeable
about particular products, they can
provide that information. If you
want to improve your prospecting
skills or how you handle objections,
they can help there too. As I’ve said
before and will probably say again,
the Home Office team is here to help
you become the best you can be for
yourself and your customers.
BECOME A
TOP PRODUCER
Thousands of new Agents have
joined the UA and First UA family
this year. They understand the
tremendous potential that exists
for them to become successful,
especially in the area of selling
Medicare Supplements. Many of
them are already well on their way to
becoming top producers. As I review
our weekly Leader Board and our
monthly top producers in Summit
magazine, I see many new names
each week and each month. That is
exciting for all of us!
Make your attitude for success work
for you and your customers during
these final days of the Medicare
Annual Enrollment Period. Share the
value of UA and First UA products
to anyone who will listen. The result
will be happy customers, more
commission in your pocket, and the
opportunity to get one step closer to
2015 Convention qualification. I want
to see YOU and your guest in Boca
Raton in 2015.

Are YOU a
Newcomer?
Are you new to the insurance industry or newly
contracted with UA or First UA? Do you want to
see your name and picture in Summit magazine
as a top producer and Convention qualifier?
Here’s how:
Embrace your role as a
salesperson with gusto.
Your objective is to help people. You want to become
a trusted advisor, a person who educates prospects
and customers about why health insurance and life
insurance is important — and then provide choices
available to them. What’s the best approach? You don’t
need to reinvent the wheel. Find out what successful
Agents do and do the same thing. Subscribe to industry
publications and/or look for online articles to hone your
craft. Definitely attend UA/First UA training webinars and
live seminars.
Make it your
business.
To stay in business, you
must make a profit. You
have three basic functions:
prospect, close, and service
your customers during
prime calling time. Save
nonessential sales tasks
for after hours or early in
the morning. Consult your
Director or Recruiter about
how to make the most of your
time. They’re experienced
sales people and can help.
Work hard.
There are no short cuts to any place
worth going. If you want success, work
for it. As Zig Ziglar once said, “The
harder you are on yourself, the easier
life will be on you.” Put in the time
needed to create and sustain your plan
for success. Become known as the
hardest working person in your office.
Remember, the Home Office team is here
to guide you when you need it!
R
E
M
O
C
NEW
Follow a plan
every day.
Decide how many calls and
presentations you need to get
the sales you want. Script what
you need to say in as few words
as possible. Practice until the
words become second nature
and flow naturally. The Ad
Catalog on the UA Agent website
has preapproved phone scripts
and Medicare presentation scripts
to reference.
Take responsibility.
If your sales aren’t what you want,
make changes to your activity level and
approach. You are definitely the driving
force creating your success, but you are
never alone in its creation. UA and First
UA have training resources available
24/7. Your Recruiter, Director, Agency
Service, New Business … the Home Office
team can help get you on the road to
success and keep you there.

November 2O14  BE A SUPERHERO
Fortunately, to be a successful insurance Agent you don’t have
to zoom around like Superman saving the planet every day from
evildoers. You just have to reach the thousands of individuals in this
country waiting for what you can provide. Become their champion!
Be a Super Hero for your customers — and yourself — by being a
great salesperson every day. Here are a few tips to guide you:

Invest time in
people and
situations that
positively affect
your life and your
income. Avoid
‘negative’ people

It’s time spent that

“TRUST IS A FRAGILE
THING - DIFFICULT TO
BUILD, EASY TO BREAK.”
What’s the most important quality a Senior
looks for in an insurance Agent? IT’S SOMEONE
WHO IS TRUSTWORTHY, according to a 2012
Senior Survey by JLS Marketing Concepts, Ltd.
Here’s the breakdown in three important areas:

EXPERIENCE
Trust is the most important factor with almost
60 percent of Seniors surveyed. What are key elements
to create and build trust with Seniors?
First impressions, including the
initial image you create over
the phone, matter. The tone of
your voice, how you’re dressed,
how well groomed you are, the
strength of your handshake, the
warmth of your smile, and your
manners in general all matter to
a potential Senior customer. In
addition, your business card,
website, and Social Media
presence create an impression
that can foster trust or arouse
suspicion. Present yourself as
a professional every day and in
every way.
COMPETENCE
Demonstrate competence by
asking the right questions to
uncover your prospect’s needs.
Be knowledgeable about the
insurance industry, know your
competitors, and provide product
solutions to fill your prospect’s
needs. Answer questions and
address concerns openly and
honestly. If you don’t know
something, don’t be afraid to
admit it. But assure your prospect
you’ll find the answer.
DEPENDABILITY
Be on time for appointments.
Make sure customers know they
can depend on you to do what you
say you will do when you say you
will do it. Always be accountable
for your actions.

CONNECTIVITY
Show interest and concern for
others using active listening
and communication skills. Be
interested in your prospects and
customers beyond their potential
insurance needs. Ask open-ended
questions about their life and
interests and actively listen to
their responses. Be involved!
BELIEVABILITY
Be completely honest and fair
at all times when dealing with
customers. Act in a consistent,
value-driven manner to reassure
prospects and customers they can
always rely on you.
PRESENCE
Being in the moment is important
with all people, but especially
important to build trust with
Seniors. When you’re with them,
be with them 100 percent. More
than just active listening, this
includes active observation.
Be observant to make sure
your customer is comfortable
throughout the sales process.
Good insurance Agents are able to
make potentially complex matters
simple. But proceed at a pace that
does not frustrate or confuse your
Senior customer.
