They are convinced, so they are convincing. They speak with extraordinary passion about the challenges facing families without effective life insurance plans and have inspired our Agents in Los Angeles to rise up and help our customers find solutions to those challenges.

Personally & professionally, I know Scott & Steve very well! Over the years we’ve spent time together at the annual MDRT meetings, company events & study groups. What amazed me was their relentless pursuit to continue improving their craft while at the top of their game. Rest assured, when you attend one of their seminars, you will be learning from some of the best in the industry

Rick Sanchez
MDRT Lifetime Member Agent (Miami, FL)

I have worked with Steve and Scott for quite some time now. Getting advice from Agents like Steve and Scott has been so valuable, not just because the advice is on point but also because its from someone that has experienced what I am going through and gotten through it. They have taken my vision for Agency to another level. Since the first time I spoke to them towards the end of last year, to now I have qualified for 3 Lines Presidents Club / MDRT and Exotic. I am currently on time to repeat this. If you are looking for great mentorship and friendship Scott and Steve cannot be beat!
