i used to work in a Chinese bank a few years ago, before switching over to insurance, and didn’t have a stable income to contribute financially to the household (I am married with a son).
I ended up having to depend on my wife’s $2.2k/month salary.
I’m facing a myriad of problems at work, being relatively new to the insurance industry, finding potential prospects is very tiring, and still trying to arrange meetings.
My wife has been nagging and nagging at me instead of showing me a hint of support and telling me that I’m being selfish.
She says that she barely has enough money for herself and that selling insurance “no future”, asking what if I have no commission forever?
She told me to get a part time job first as I look for a proper job.
I spoke to one of my ex schoolmates from poly who is also one of my insurance prospects, and she told me that every job is the same at the beginning, it is always rough at the start.
I have meetings and trainings almost every other day which is draining mentally, but my wife just keeps scolding me instead of being supporting because “I’m throwing our son” to her.
Insurance really no future meh, I don’t know, but I can’t give up now.
