Work full time but have a passion to break into financial services <on the side for now> to gain exposure, mentorship and skills. Not sure how to do that. Truly interested in the wealth management side, not life insurance solely. Tried that and all they cared about was “recruiting more agents”. Not for me as my priority right now is mentorship and learning. Currently life licensed and studying for SIE. Any recommendations?

Long story short, I have a bachelors in Public Health/Health Science, and no idea what to do with it. I currently am contracted with a disabilities agency in the vocational services side of things, working for $20/hr with no benefits. I realize this is a very low paying job, but I do not know the extent of the career options with the degree I have. I’d like to ask, what would be the highest paying/most rewarding career options for me?

Comforting others:
When someone tells me bad news regarding their health, I say everything I am supposed to say (I’m sorry to hear that, I’m here for you, etc) EXCEPT “everything is going to be ok”. Because I can’t guarantee that and I really don’t know if everything is going to be ok. I was taken aback recently when a friend told me I am calloused and cold-hearted for not being able to say those words. Is she right? Should I start saying this for the purposes of providing comfort only??

Hi - Anyone in Corporate insurance for 10+ exp. Please share your salary and bonus range.

Feeling like a loser and that I’m meant to fail and suffer because I have no idea how to be successful with anything. Whether it is prioritizing health, finding a new job, being able to sleep, having good relationships with family, being able to date and find someone attractive and successful… seems like this is all too far fetched for me and that I’m meant to just grieve and fail and suffer. How do I stop feeling this? How can I communicate and “achieve” results?

Is it considered unprofessional to send an email instead of a formal letter? Specifically, my firm has been retained by a title insurance company to obtain an easement for an insured property. Our first step is to reach out to the neighbor to ask them to grant the easement directly. The neighbor is a realtor and I easily found his email address online - I went to draft an email to him but found myself wondering if it’s unprofessional to send an email rather than formal letter. Thoughts?
