Three reasons to start a Brightway agency:

1. Earning Potential

As a Brightway franchise owner you’ll also enjoy the unique benefit of building a residual income stream as policies you sell renew. Few businesses are as recession-proof as the insurance industry. As an independent agent, you'll have access to a steady stream of income—no matter what's happening in the economy.

2. Service & Support

Nearly 500 insurance experts provide training and support in areas including customer engagement, technology, accounting, marketing, distribution and Business analytics.  In addition, Brightway handles carrier relations and appointments, as well as support with personnel hiring, licensing, onboarding, training and retention. 

3. Freedom

Take control of your future and be your own boss. Franchising not only offers you the same freedom of managing your own business but gives you the tools and support to lead you to success.
