I was a marketing person for an advisor and then decided to go out on my own and get licensed and start my own firm. Very rarely works out that way. I know of assistants that bought books of their advisor at RJ when they got too old or sick to continue. If that’s not an opportunity for you I recommend working for an independent advisor that has more opportunities to learn the business and grow into an advisor role.
