Learn more about David Duford and his experience selling final expense and training new final expense agents through the Final Expense Agent Mentor program.
David Duford is the owner and operator of Final Expense Agent Mentor, specializing in recruiting and training agents to become self-sufficient, financially-successful, independent final expense agents through intensive, one-on-one coaching, mentorship, and guidance.
He began his final expense sales career back in 2011 as an act of desperation, since his existing business in the personal training industry was going down the tubes financially due to the negative economic factors of the Great Recession.
David has had ups and downs in the industry. Due to David not following the system of success in final expense, he failed out within his first year, and had to hold down a job for a year before getting back into final expense sales full-time. While the experience was tough, it molded David's perspective about the importance of following a tried-and-tested system of success without deviation, as part of his short-term struggle was due to deviating from that system.
Fast-forward to present day, David and his Mentorship program are rocking along! David has recruited hundreds of agents, both experienced and new, to teach them how to sell final expense successfully following the same system of success David has employed throughout his career as a personal producer. Many of the agents he has recruited have developed into six-income earners following this same model of success.
And since his Mentorship program inception, David's business is on track to grow 500% within 3 years!
David is an unapologetic workaholic, dubbed "The Hardest Working Man In The Final Expense Business." In addition to recruiting and training agents in his Mentorship program, he also personally produces and sells final expense several days a week, working the same lead system his agents use.
