I'm 30 months in with Jones and 4mil book. Nothing exciting but I'm proud of it as I had no sales experience, knew nothing about the industry, and was NOT one of the 7 people in my area over the last 2.5 years that walked into 10+mil book. The most recent one may have been the nail in the coffin for me and got me searching. It just doesn't sit right with me that some noob can walk into a decent size book and expect to keep it or do what's right for the client better than an experienced FA ie me :). Needless to say that was the catalyst and how I ran into this forum. Awesome resource! Thanks to all that contribute to it and kinda wish I knew about it a long time ago too. I feel as though my eyes have been openned lol. There could possibly be life after Jones. I'm in Canada so it may be a bit different than the US. Seems though that there are a fair amount of Canucks on the board from some of the comments I have read.At RJ will they let you work another job? In an ideal world I'd love to bang out calls 3 days a week (which I know I'd be more efficient at than doing all week) and build a fee based business? To suppliment the lack of $$$ in the front end of doing that I'd need 2-3 days to work another job (not industry related) to give me a base and keep me sain. Provided I had a branch manager that would pay me more than my cut at Jones and allowed me to do this, is it possible? I guess the real question is, is it Jones' rules that I can't have a second job or industry rules? I'm so indoctrinated that I don't know what is industry related or Jones related :) No answers on Joneslink I tried :p Thanks, and bring on the hate if you feel inclined.
