Treat Your Career As A Business Why Are PIF Counts Important?
Being an independent adjuster is not the same as having a job. We do not clock into work and receive a paycheck. We are INDEPENDENT. Isnt that one of the main appeals for becoming an adjuster?
Just as any other business, we are free to choose when and where and for whom we work. It is up to us to build a book of business. It is up to us to build and nurture relationships. It is up to US.
I see many adjusters, new and old, that have yet to adopt this level of professionalism. They will get deployed on a storm and six months later they are broke and asking anyone and everyone for information on how to get more claims.
New adjusters get a taste of the independence and money, but then are left out when theres little work to be had. Without knowing how it all works they too are confused and asking anyone and everyone for information on how to get more claims.
Do you think Google is asking Amazon how to get more clients? Or Apple asking Samsung? Or the local roofing contractors, plumbers, HVAC techs, or pest control folks? No, of course not.
