Since most of you are rookies and looking for advice on the forums, I am going to give you some.
Your co-workers are probably idiots, more than likely, you are gong to fail in your current wirehouse environment unless you're really really lucky. You do not have to fail in the industry, you just have to accept that it is jacked up at the moment. Your mentors are lying to you. If you were going to be successful you would see your income rising fast.
I wasted to much time prior to becoming successful listening to people tell me how successful I was going to be. My favorite line - Show me the money!
