8/10.... Fewer clients, more money

like

8 - Love my job but it is starting to get a bit monotonous. If I could make things with my hands and earn the same amount of money I would seriously consider it.

like

10.... love my clients....love my co-workers.... really like the income....
Try not to let the paperwork, the occasional cranky customer, market volatility and sales pressure steal my joy.

like

5 - love the feeling of satisfaction I get when helping a client but only two years in and income is nowhere close to where I want or need, tired of prospecting, and want more intellectual stimulation than just placing trades and designing financial plans. I want to solve more complex problems.

like

10-10. Hard work=Very rewarding/satisfying

8/10 - finding a competent Admin.

7/10; need more clients to keep from being bored. Prospect currently but there’s no shortcut to client acquisition. The rest of the business is very fulfilling.

8/10 - 3 years in and still building clients and AUM so income isn’t where I want. But I love my clients and love what I do!

My wife and I are trying to have our first baby. She is ovulating this week. We’ve done it twice since she started ovulating this week. Night before last she wanted to and I said I wasn’t up for it. And she said okay. She wanted to again last night and I said I wasn’t up for it. She got really upset and after a long conversation happened, we left it at: “Wife ovulating>whether or not either one of us wants to have sex”. Is this normal?

Everyone has a different perspective on this but would love to hear yours. Someone has debt ranging say 4-5% interest rates. Do you attack debt more then investing to move towards a debt free life or do you go after investments since they return historically above that then paying down closer towards retirement. I know the latter looks better on paper but what about the psychological factors of being debt free and the guaranteed return on interest savings.
