It takes patience and strong communication skills. Taking the time to understand insurance products and staying up to date on rules and regulatory changes can be a challenge. Maintaining patience during this process is important. Strong communication skills are just as important. There are a lot of moving parts of insurance that need to be communicated in an effective manner during the entire consulting process.
