You have made a tough decision, one that few really have the guts to make—you are an entrepreneur. Your dream can become real, because many of your Bridgepointe peers started right where you are now, and embarked on what just might be the biggest hustle and toughest year of your life. Year one is all about stepping outside your comfort zone, getting in front of customers, networking and building relationships, shaping and building your personal brand, and mastering your sales pitch.
Working half your waking day (12 hours) might not be enough. You’ll need to really push yourself, test your mettle and get out in front of people to find opportunities. These first months you’re focused on setting appointments and meeting potential networking partners.
Your sales funnel starts to take shape by around month five, and you start closing deals by Q4. While your income might be lower than expected, you are motivated by your BPT support team and agent peers that you’re building a foundation and network that will pay dividends for years to come.
