NAIFA's Chernoff and O'Connell Share Their Secrets to Winning the "Big Case"

By NAIFA on 2/16/23 9:06 AM

NAIFA leaders Jeff Chernoff, MS, LUTCF, LACP, and Danny O'Connell, LACP share their “big case stories” and advice on winning your own big case in the month's InsuranceNewsNet magazine.

In the article, he shares, “If somebody goes dark on you and you don’t hear anything, you know people want to do business with someone they know, like, and trust. And that doesn’t come overnight. That takes time."

Chernoff won his big case with patience. “First of all, ‘no’ does not mean ‘never.’ Second, if you keep a relationship positive, you never know the opportunities you will generate from that," he says in the article.
