Are you either looking to leave your firm ... or being shown the door? There has to be at least one or two threads started like this a week.It's not the end of the world and you don't have to stop being a financial advisor. I am looking to bring on some talent and in fact, nearly any independent is. I'm not encouraging you to lay down or stop giving your current employer 100% - just the opposite. Swing through the ball, tackle through the body and work hard. But know other people would hire you, almost certainly and that should give you hope for today.Feel free to pm for details.
