Here is my story in the short version, and my concerns.
My family may need to move.  Bottom line is we want to be closer to our families.  With 2 kids we find that to be more important than any job.  I started with Edward Jones in August, and have been doing well.  I talked to the Regional Leader in the area we are going to move back to, and really the best thing he can offer me is a new target location.  Basically I will be starting from scratch all over again.  Here are my biggest concerns:
I want to continue to use my 7 and 66 liscenses.  I enjoy this job, but dont want to do the door knocking all over again.  In the contract I know there is a 75000 training cost that they can try to recover.  If I have to take another job with another firm I will, but that scares me because of the 75G hanging over my head.  Any advice would be good.  I know some in the past on here have said they fight the training costs but I just don't know how successful those are or have been.  Any advice, or knowledge of what might happen in my situation would be helpful.  Thanks!

Forget about the 75G, if you leave they won't chase you.
Second, when you say you don't want to door knock again, that raises a red flag. You are starting over, so you will need to either doorknock, cold call or figure out some other way to find clients.
