JACKSONVILLE, FLA. More consumers now have the opportunity to enjoy a better way to shop for insurance as eight people are on the path to the American dream of business ownership through the Independent Agent program.

“In January, we announced the Independent Agent program and are pleased to welcome our newest group of Independent Agents to Brightway,” said Brightway President, Talman Howard. “The program gives experienced Agents the opportunity to begin selling in the Brightway system while qualifying for franchise ownership and no up-front costs or risks.”
