“I’m happy to say that LILI is one of the best professional experiences that I’ve had in my career and have sincerely enjoyed every class. I’ve been an active NAIFA member since moving to Texas in 2010 from Michigan. I’ve always heard about how NAIFA helps advisors make more money and obviously is out there every day protecting our industry and our clients. It wasn’t until I got into the LILI curriculum that I understood what that really meant. The opportunity to build relationships with seasoned professionals all over the state, hear their ideas, gain the knowledge from all the great books included, I think will help any agent or advisor take their practice or firm to the next level. ”
