Mentoring is one of the best things you can do to help strengthen the agent population. You can pass on your years of knowledge, teach a new agent the tricks of the trade – and might even end up with a successor.

If you’re interested in becoming a mentor but not sure where to start, you may want to take part in MDRT/GAMA International’s mentoring program. You have to qualify for MDRT membership, but if you do, you’ll have access to mentorship tools and the chance to develop a new agent’s career to MDRT-level success.

You can also meet potential mentees at conferences, association events, or through insurance-industry groups on such social media sites as LinkedIn. And the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors has a Young Advisors Team (YAT), with local chapters that frequently seek out experienced advisors to pair with new agents in a mentoring relationship.
