Lost a client to UBS today. Sold her out of a 6 year annuity after only 3 years. She needs the guaranteed income! No other savings, age 60, no job with solid income, no husband. Who allows this?

Not Sure how you got putting all her savings into an annuity.

At least you got your commission on the annuity bro, pump and dump!

Some of these responses are repulsive, and give us a bad name. I only want what’s right for my clients, and took the lowest comm possible with a living benefit. The fact that someone signed the transaction to sell it is my issue. I’m fully licensed and could have offered anything. This was the right solution for her needs. 100%.

Hard to hear but she trusted him/her more than you.

Hate to tell you this bro but I wouldn't trust somebody that dumped me into an annuity either

That is what gives us a bad name. Annuity can be a great tool. But when people are put in for wrong reason or advisors use pump and dump makes us all look bad.

I have an idea I want to pursue for a city run. I want to hire a truck and have a DJ booth set up for a DJ to play EDM while s/he’s facing the runners following the truck. The idea is for the runners to be energized by the music, like listening on their headphones but scaled up. Sort of like a 1- or 2-hour music/fitness event. Is this a stupid or crazy or would people actually be interested in this?

Made it to the on-site round for PM. Since I need a whole day for it, is it cool that the soonest date I am able to give my recruiter is not for another 3 weeks (3/16). The last date I gave was April 1 (lots of dates between). Feels so far, but finding a solid day off is difficult.
