Wendy Pake has built a successful career as a partner with WPA. "I had to find a way to provide for my two children quickly," says Wendy, from Edinburgh. "The WPA opportunity attracted me. I had no medical or sales background but I knew I was good with people and felt I could provide advice."
Wendy took the training course and within a year business took off. "Once I had sourced my first customers they referred me to others and pretty soon I had a built a strong customer base," says Wendy.
Partners with ethical, not-for-profit company WPA provide advice on WPA medical insurance to companies and individuals, mostly working from home. There is no need for premises or stock. "It helps that we use a gentle approach," says Wendy. "I earn more than most women I know, and as a self-employed company representative I can fit my work around the family." She says: "Health insurance sounds like a man’s world, but it’s not. I think women are especially suited to it. Some customers feel more comfortable giving their medical history to a woman."
The ideal partner has high ethical standards and the ability to build strong relationships with individual and corporate customers. They must have a strong desire to succeed and a glass half-full approach to life. WPA can teach, mentor and guide you through the rest.
