correction: 1 year non-solicit Commented on: 5 years ago (May 12, 2009)

Wow--You finally made the shift.  I got two letters.  I ignored them both.  Ultimately we settled.  I made 5X my best year with my previous B/D after I went independent in my...

Help me with Ameriprise Commented on: 5 years ago (March 26, 2009)

After I left Jones and went independent I was contacted by Ameriprise.  I was, at the time, producing about $150k GDC.  They proposed an $80k bonus and the franchise to use their name....

Edward Jones Performance Exception Commented on: 5 years ago (March 9, 2009)

You have the best of both worlds.  The training and experience and NO possibility of being sued as you go forward.  The only thing that has changed is the algebra.  Now you get 85%...

Leaving EDJ before Can-Sell Commented on: 6 years ago (June 20, 2008)

Leaving EJ - Good Idea or No? Commented on: 7 years ago (August 27, 2007)
