SIDNEY M. MILLER-
music lover makes good to
the tune of a milion in saes!
When Sidney Miller became a New York Life repre-
sentative, he gave up his first love, music-to concen-
trate on two goals: selling a million dollars of insurance
protection, and earning his Chartered Life Underwriter
degree, a designation given for successfully completing
advanced study courses that help him give even better
service to his clients. He has accomplished both of these
objectives.
Sidney Miller, like many other college alumni, is well
established in a career as a New York Life representa-
tive. In business for himself, his own talents and ambi-
tions are the only limitations on his potential income.
Additionally, he has the deep satisfaction of helping
others. If you or someone you know would like more
information on such a career with one of the world's
leading life insurance companies, write:
