I know you guys give some valuable and interesting perspectives and thats why I'm here. I have been given the green light to produce here at an indy firm. A little of my background. I came from the retail bank as a licensed retail banker. (6&63) We didnt concentrate to much on the brokerge business as we got referral credit for passing it off to a FA (got paid without having to do anything but referring.) The small amount of mutual fund business that I did do was with Evergreen Asset Allocation business. (LOL the only wholesaler that would call me and the only mutual fund our DM felt comfortable with us selling). Now I moved moved to an independant channel where I started off as the recruiter (cold calling etc) Obtained my series 7 and 24 where now I am considered a producing branch manager. I inherited a small small book and looking to grow upon that. SInce I never received any formal training as far obtaining assets in this manner (no retail branch to support but I did kill it when gathering deposits for the bank) what are some ideas to get my feet wet. I know you cant go into like this, but I'm not looking to knock it out of the water, as in I need this to sink or swim.. I'd be happy with gathering some assets making 15k-30k the first year. Is this doable?? Please, I need some help as my wife is very hungry these days P.S. When I say old I'm not old I'm 29. I mean I've been in the financial world for 4 years but new to the straight securities business.
