My short lived tenure with EdJ ended three weeks ago.  I am seeking a company that will allow me to learn and venture into forex markets and that can handle the 20 million dollar industrial bonds I have been presented with through an associate of mine that need to be underwritten now.  I need some direction as I am a fairly new advisor.  I own two companies so I do need flexibility to work these opportunities and do trades on a need be basis or as they are presented to me.  Integrity and a great reputation are very important to me, as is timely follow-up and client care. Please let me know of a company I may bring my license and business to as well. tks
PS. I am series 7, 66 and variables products licensed.

The first thing any company will (should) ask is why your tenure was so short.

I desired to disconnect for a number of reasons. For one, my interest expanded beyond the scope of their product and service offering. Also, unfortunately, I received very little, if any support after my can sell date.  The experience was not a pleasant one for me and the business model proved not to be a fit for me personally.  I am thankful for receiving my license, but needed to move on before I built up a client base that I would not be in a position to service, which is very important to me.  It was disappointing, but I took the positive from it. At this time, I simply want to find a good fit for me and place my license with a reputable company that will allow me to run my companies as well.  thks

I realized I needed to disconnect pretty early on.  My interest expanded beyond the scope of their product and service offering. Also, unfortunately, I received very little, if any support after my can sell date.  The experience was not a pleasant one for me and the business model proved not to be a fit for me personally.  I am thankful for receiving my license, but needed to move on before I built a client base that I would not be in a position to service, which is very important to me. It was disappointing, but I chose to take the positive from it.  I am simply looking for a company that is a good fit for me.

If you thought your support in the first few months was bad at Edward Jones, you are in for a rude awakening.  Jones may have its faults, but support for new advisors is probably one of its strongest attributes.
 
It sounds to me like you don't want to prospect, and you stumbled upon some "great" opportunity.

Hopefully, they fired you. Or else you should expect a nice lawsuit to be filed against you shortly after you place your license with your new firm. Good luck.

Did you tell EDJ about your two other companies?  Or did you misunderstand what EDJ does?  I can't imagine that EDJ would allow you to continue any ownership stake in any other financial services type of business.  Forex and muni bond underwriting would definitely qualify as financial services businesses.  Something's fishy here.

Am I missing something here ...the number of younger people posting and have now been able to " see the light " so quickly???? I can only speak from my life experiences with such short tenures with a firm , you are still attempting to figure out the job , the required paperwork , when do I get paid and on what date and finally where is the washroom again!!!
This is NUTS.....you have not proven to anyone your potential or worth and NOW YOU KNOW MORE than all the veterans.
