As I round the bend and take the 66, I'm chomping more and more at the bit to get started on the "meat" of why I chose this career. I consider myself generally educated a specifically knowledgeable of finance. I am a confident person and naturally at ease when talking to people of every walk of life. I can adequately say I have a handle on most of the variables that are essential to this line of work.
My guess would be that my biggest issue is the fact that I am 26. Granted, for my age I have an unusually extensive work experience through both meaningfully working through school and time spent as an officer in the National Guard.
Any suggestions on how to discount my age if it is raised as an issue?
One response I have come up with is: "Yes I understand that I am younger than most in this industry. But how confident are you that your current broker will not retire before you?"
