Been here only 3 days and already I have gone on 2 wholesaler lunches. Do you go to these and listen to the wholesaler pitch his fund for a free lunch? The reason I am asking is I have listened to two sides of this "game" and wondering what most reps think of this. All the other newbies in the office say yea, it's a free lunch I can order the steak and lobster. Then the guys who have been at the firm forever don't go to these lunches. So, I ask them why don't you guys take advantage of the free lunch. Theytell me "son, in this business you don't want to go to lunch with someone who is selling you something, you want to go with someone you are selling to". So what do you do when the wholesaler comes a knocking??
