The Value of Versatility with Van Mueller

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that there is more than one way to make a sale. If Van Mueller can reach his 30th year at the Top of the Table during a pandemic, why can’t you? Diversify your offering with life insurance and using cash value to your clients’ advantage, and learn how to get appointments even now. Being versatile enough to make that sale across any platform and having versatile offerings shows your clients that you know how to control the situation instead of being controlled.

What Van will cover, in his own words:
