Many recent college graduates like the idea of being their own boss. The great part about the Financial Services Representative (FSR) career is that it’s like going into business for yourself, with all the independence and flexibility this implies, but without the capital investment required to start a business and with extensive support from MassMutual and your local agency. There are strong similarities to starting your own startup business; at “Me, Inc.” you’ll work hard, put in some long hours at first, and reinvest in your practice.  Successful entrepreneurs understand that delayed gratification is frequently needed to achieve their long-term financial goals and levels of success they envision for themselves.
