It's hard for me to quit anything.


CS - you mean you won't quite bec of pride?


Yes, the biproduct of Marine Corps training. Many battles with the wife because of it. Though.


In my first 5 years, I quit (in my head) a hundred times. Fortunately I never spoke it to my manager. I stuck around because I was good at this and I truly believed I was/am helping people make life determining decisions no less important than their cardiologist! I also KNEW it is a war of attrition. I don't have to last forever, I just have to last longer than the other guy(rookie) in my office. Kinda like out running a Grizzly. I really just have to be faster than YOU.


Nearly every day. Over 20 years + have been regional, wire-house, independent and large agency. Has never gotten easier or consistent.

Thought about it many times over my 21 years. This business will chew you up and spit you out. But I knew if I found the right situation that would allow me to fairly benefit from my effort , I could succeed. Glad I stuck it out.

Anyone who purchased a 2nd primary residence and turned the 1st into a rental, how much savings/income did you have relative to your mortgages?

I’m looking to rent out my current residence and purchase another to live in & rent. Someone advised I not purchase a second place until I can afford to fully cover both mortgages. Makes sense in theory but who actually does this in practice? Wouldn’t a few months savings if I’m out a renter be more realistic?

Beginner here. Not wanting to invest in individual stocks. Should I open a Schwab automated intelligent portfolio account or should I invest in ETFs myself?

Do you believe suit jackets are a necessity for a professional woman to wear? Should we wear a suit jacket with every outfit or are work dresses ok by themselves? My office dress code is business casual but I'm a little confused about meetings and events outside of my office.


I have a Civic when I started my career, it’s still in good condition but I’m thinking get a more luxurious one to meet with clients. Should I upgrade my car as I progress in my career?
