If you want a life of ridiculously hard sales, try being a FA. You will starve the first few years and you will knock on doors, cold call, beg people to do business with you. You will work weekends and some nights. You have the financial well being of 300 households in the palm of your hand. If you frick it up, they go broke. They will love you sometimes, they will hate you sometimes. You will gain customers and lose close customers that you thought were friends. You will spend a huge chunk of time handling mind numbing compliance bull shite and taking continuing education classes. The paperwork today is almost overwhelming
FAs will always be glorified insurance salesmen to me.
That profession provides increasingly less value added.
