As you may or may not have read in some of the postings I have posted, I am new to the business. Just came on to a wirehouse as a junior about a month ago. I spend the majority of my day studying and even more of the time on the phones making cold calls. This is one hard business to make it in, but it is feasible. As a rookie its tough , i mean it gets pretty boring dialing 10 hours a day while the senior brokers on my team are riding me. (though i know most of the reason they are hard on me at times is testing me to see If i am able to withstand it, after all this is a business where you deal with rejection day in and day out.) anyways i am getting pretty off topic i just want to congratulate all who have made it and not to sound corny you are all an inspiration. I strive for the success you have all attained and seeing how hard this business is i know you have all earned it. All these postings and advice have been extremely helpful in getting me through this "bootcamp" stage of my career and just wanted to say thanks. best of luck to all of you and just keep doing what your doing.
