I have completed one week of insurance hell. It actually hasn't been too bad. I've been able to get out early all week and I really have learned a lot. I have learned I'm pretty darn good at it - which is a bit of surprise to me (and I guess to everyone else). My instructor told me today that when she first met me she wasn't sure if it would be my thing - but after this week she's impressed with how effective I am with MY style. I should be training them...
Having such ease with computers really does help since I find myself a heck of a lot faster than the others - but it also makes the day a lot more boring.
I like the people I've met and although we have different goals from our endeavors (they are going to actually be full time agents) we seem to be pretty cohesive as a group.
I'm also surprised at how much I remember from the studying I did for that ridiculous licensing exam!!! I really thought it went out the window as soon as I passed - but I did store some in my long term memory!
So - this week was a bit of a surprise. I always am shocked when I'm good at something (I was so nervous I vomited Monday before I left!!), and it's nice to participate in a training that is actually useful!
Julia starts school after Labor Day. So, next week is my last week of training, and then we'll get Julia in school.... then I should be back around more often! I had 1300 blog posts on Google Reader to catch up on, so I dumped them all and I'm going to have to work my way back into my favorites!
Enjoy the end of summer!
