I am getting ready to leave Jones and go independent. The reason for leaving is the same as many who have gone before; the need for better platforms, better investment options and better payouts. I have been around for years and I am tired of the volunteering, the increasing smell of bullsh*t and constantly being crowded (If Dairy Queen can't see the opportunity in my town do we really need another Edward Jones office?). I am looking for a clear way to phrase "why I left" to my clients. To those of you who have left, please help. I have my pitch down pretty good so far but I know that sometimes one word can make a difference. Let me hear your stories.ATTN: Jones lovers. Please do not feel the need to probe the "real reason" why I am leaving. I have been around you guys for years and know that you love to imagine that everyone who leaves must do so because they were either fired for production or some compliance issue. Sometimes it is just a better fit elsewhere.
