One who execui:esanddelivers a life insurance policy. In other wo.rds, a person whose business it is to offer the known benefits of life insur• ance to individuals, to corpor• ations, to partn!!rships, etc. But further, the life under• writer is one who must con• vince those dients of the benefits offered. This means stimulating contact with hu· man character, and with large affairs. Some underwriters prefer t h e . game of character and de~~ol mainly with indi· viduals. Others' prefer affairs; to them is open the great field of business insurance. Furthermore, the business of life underwritin g pays highly for initiative and ability. And still more, the life under• writer offers to his clie nt a commodity which bas no risk in it, does not deteriorate, and adds no b urden of mental worry. The life underwriter sells absolute security, the foundationofserenityofmind.

It is worth while to think these things over now and to remember them when, per• haps, you find yourself wrong• ly placed in whatever business you may have chosen.
