1 Degree Rule:
For an agent to be successful tackling a new market the market and/or actions required need to be within 1 degree of separation from their primary focus.
- Market similar focused lines of products – easily expanding on their current client’s attention.

- Built systems – easily executable making the process for the agent fluid.
