Welcome to what we hope is the first of many posts to feature the launch of a new Bizdom U business. For those who don't know, Bizdom U is an entrepreneurial school in downtown Detroit from Quicken Loans Chairman Dan Gilbert.
You might remember us mentioning Guffly before – they're another Bizdom business which is about 6 months old.
So, without further ado, here is the first pitch to you, our dear DIFF readers from one of the newest Bizdom grads – Roger Williams of Launch Learning Group:
In these economic hard times chances are you know someone out of work or looking for a new career path. If so, a career in insurance may be right for them. There is an unlimited income potential, flexible hours and it’s an industry that is still growing even in this economy.
To assist people in breaking into the insurance industry, my partner Antonella Solomon and I just launched our business out of Bizdom U to help prospective insurance agents acquire their license by training them to pass the State exam on the first try. Our business, Launch Learning Group, has a new training model and we have broken the old mold of insurance training which is typically traditional, lecture based and boring.
We went out and researched how adults learn best and then applied that to our training so that it’s interactive, engaging, practical and fun. We’ve incorporated technology and techniques like games, case studies and group activities to help participants understand the information better which leads to higher passing rates and successful careers in insurance. Furthermore, you can complete the training and register for the State exam in just one week!
If you or someone you know is interested in getting licensed, there is a 20% discount for being a referral of the Quicken family of companies. The first two courses are both in Life & Health and are scheduled for the weeks of 3/15 and 3/29. The training will be held at the Oakland Center (Wayne State Universities Satellite campus) in Farmington Hills and they can choose to take Life & Health, just Life or just Health.
Go to www.launchlg.com to learn more about the program and to register for classes—spots will be filling up fast! When you choose the course you want, click on “Register for this Course” and then type in “Quicken” in the voucher section to apply the 20% family discount.
If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to give us a call!
