Good Morning,

I'm looking at transitioning into Financial Advising with Edward Jones, wanted to know if anyone can provide some REAL insight on what I may be getting into with the Financial Advisor role? Thank you and any feedback would be helpful. Also if there are any persons that can provide a referral I would greatly appreciate it.

Why? Money could be good but do you have a large network of freinds and family that are willing to buy now from you? That’s what will
Determine your success early on. Never been a FA , but considered it before getting into consulting. I have a ton of close friends in the business and you need to have some solid cash saved as your not making much the first few years and you’re busting your a** HARD. Will payoff- but it’s a lot of time and sacrifice prior
