Fairly certain that I just had a career first. I managed to keep up with and use a legal pad all the way to completion. Pretty sure that should unlock some sort of bonus points or prize or something.
As I get older and have less of the rose tinted glasses perspective that I did coming into the industry, I've been slowly becoming more worried about the potential for layoffs (not firing). I feel like it's normal and bound to happen to most people due to factors outside of their control, whether they're at an agency, client side etc. I think this comes from a deep rooted trauma as a child where my single parent became unemployed and we were homeless for a bit. But is this a normal fear?

Hi fellow ladies in finance! Curious to know: has anyone seriously contemplated leaving the industry for similar reasons? I have over 10 years experience working for various firms, now as a CFP but I'm really feeling the burnout. I've worked hard to be in this position, but honestly...I'm tired of working really hard to put plans together and help people that do not do what they said they they want to do, and instead we are nagging clients to get shit done. The things, as planners, we cannot do
I made the error of telling a recruiter my minimum preference of salary when she asked target salary. She confirmed that’s in line with the role pay scale plus a small bonus. The employer now made me an offer for this exact amount & small bonus.
Do I live with my error and just accept and potentially leave $ on the table? Or is it acceptable to counter with 5k more for example, (seeing as everyone usually recommends countering and that the employer is expecting a counter/can always do better)

Was previously working as an advisor growing a nice book and left to move 18hrs away to be close to family. I was pregnant and desperate to take what would move us and now I’m a planner working for FAs and I’m making $130k. Was fine at first while I got thru pregnancy but now I’m not happy & regret accepting the job and pay. I’m supporting others who are making 3-4times my salary. I have 10 yrs experience and CFP, often more than FAs I’m helping. Ask for more $$ or start over being an FA?

Seems like a cop out answer.
