I am considering MSSB/ML and got offers of $75-80k base... older guy (37), career changer, top MBA in finance. I have balked at doing it due to questioning whether I'd be a pu$$y on the phone as well. I know I'd be better at selling a meeting vs. a product and look to build AUM not PCs. Presumably PCs don't matter if you hit the other two thresholds... but is that true? PCs are the actual revenue number. Is it possible for an older person to take a more steady, polished approach? I'd be able to bring about $2.5mm over immediately from family which would buy me some time, right? Any thoughts would be appreciated on pacing yourself, etc. I've read a lot of the BondGuy stuff and the 500 day war, etc. While I would like to think I'd could do that, the fact that I have doubts leads me to believe I wouldn't do the requisite calls. I've got a pretty big professional network. Any thoughts on success of buying time with the immediate $$$ in the door and producing in a more organic matter. I know a lot of people with money or that are service providers (lawyers, CPAs, etc.).
