    Pros

    Be legal, ethical, and profitable and you call the shots. You have your own office with a dedicated BOA to help you build your business. This is not a paycheck, it's a career. Those that treat it like a paycheck will fail. For those that don't like knocking on doors, where do you expect your clients to come from? In this world, nothing happens until someone sells something. Door to door is the cheapest form of advertising. I've seen so many people fail because they don't see the big picture. Your income goes up exponentially in this business. You have clients, they send you referrals and their money grows so you make more as well. No other place are you going to get a 20% raise each year. But with some hard work that's very easy here. The travel is unbelievable, I spend 5 or 6 weeks a year traveling to places I never thought I would see. Jones pays for the airfare and typically 5 star resort for a week, and my family usually extends or does a layover someplace on the way to or back. This is earned twice a year. And partnership. I own the firm. All I know is, if I would have quit early on, I would have a JOB I hated, not doing as well as I am. And lastly, it's Jones motto to leave each community better than we found it. I feel I've done that.

    Cons

    Health care cost. Most don't understand that we're a partnership and each office is a profit center. My healthcare cost is paid by me 100% from the revenue of my office in one form or fashion. It's the same thing if you own a small business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture as we grow.
