How long have you been on the draw? If you start from scratch with no help it can take 3 years to be profitable. With help or a team you should make it sooner. Maybe you are not cut out for independence. No shame in that. Plenty of people can give good advice but don't market well. If you can't make your goal to be sustainable, move. If you can make your AUM goal in a reasonable time, stay.

Not really a concern rn that we’re all at home, but anyone else feel like they went back into the closet once they started working? I’m a senior now and very few ppl know and part of it is because I don’t want coworkers knowing more than they already know about me and the other half is that B4 are so heteronormative.....
