On Thursday, February 24th, LifePro Financial hosted our premiere sales and marketing conference, LifePro Summit, virtually to independent advisors nationwide. With over 300 attendees, we started 2022 with a bang and brought industry-leading speakers in retirement planning, annuities, and life insurance underwriting back to the LifePro stage.
