Here is my situation - I am an experienced professional working at a big 4 accounting firm (licensed CPA but no broker license yet). I make a decent salary; however, I am looking for a change of pace. I am not afraid of work, (I have worked 100+ hours per week) and I am very goal oriented. A career as a FA seems to be appealing due to it has great rewards (if you put in the work).

I am looking for a good training program from an established wire house to learn the basics. I don’t mind taking a cut in salary; however, i do not go below certain level. Based on discussion with a recruiter, SB will provide me an acceptable salary for the first couple of years, till I am able to stand alone. My goal is work a few years till I believe that I am proficient, and then weigh my options (stay or go indy)
- Any Suggestions on a good / firm program? What about SB? Any other firms that you have experience with?
- How to find a good mentor?
- Any other websites / contacts that will be helpful in making my decision and preparation?
Your candid suggestions / thoughts are appreciated. Respectfully, Len32
