Colonial Life continues to do a great job at giving us the tools we all need to be as successful as we can possibly be.

Please make sure you complete your product mastery and are up to speed on the product so you’re ready when selling opportunities arise.

Cash for Cases will soon be coming to an end. Make sure you are taking advantage of this awesome promotion!

Have you checked out the new Quick Quote Tool? If not, please do. It’s another excellent new tool to help make your business run more effectively. The Quick Quote Tool will be replacing Harmony Prelude which will be taken off-line on August 31. You can find the Quick Quote Tool on Propr. Kids are back in school, vacations are about over, business owners are back to business. Get out there and tell the Colonial Life story. It’s a good one! Let’s do all we can and have a successful week ahead. Thanks, Randy

A special message to the sales organization from Tim Arnold, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing Deadline approaching to take and pass mandatory market conduct test Time is running out to take and pass the mandatory market conduct test. If you haven’t already done so, make sure you pass the test by the Sept. 15, 2013, deadline. I appreciate everyone who has taken time to complete this very important task. However, according to our latest report more than 75 percent of the sales organization hasn’t passed the test yet. Remember, we have a long tradition of doing what’s right -- for policyholders, business owners and employees. Part of ensuring we uphold this tradition and promote our brand in the marketplace is to provide important training to our sales team on market conduct, ethics, privacy and security requirements. Market conduct training is not unique to Colonial Life. Most, if not all, of the company’s major competitors require similar training. Although it’s a regulatory requirement, it’s also the right thing to do for our customers. Members of the sales organization who don’t pass the test by the Sept. 15, deadline could face consequences including removal from advanced commissions and possibly termination from their Colonial Life contract. So make sure you look at the training on Propr, take and pass the test and get ready for a big fourth quarter.

Thank you, Tim

2014 President's Club and Leaders Conference Show off your Italian shoes Elegance, craftsmanship and beauty Step into Italy, and you'll see some of the most beautiful and elegant shoes in the world. Ladies, your closet won't be the same after you bring home some Italian shoes. And, men, your suits will look much more stylish when you wear a pair of Ferragamos. Walk into a designer shoe store, smell the leather and marvel at the craftsmanship of a well-made pair of shoes you can only find in Italy. The Italian word for shoe is scarpa, a word that sounds like the scuff of leather on pavement. But you have to qualify for the 2014 President's Club and Leaders Conference trips to enjoy this experience. Check out the standings on Propr to make sure you'll be in Italy next year.
