Prospect

Financial Advisor (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

ProsIf you have the market you have the ability to excel quickly. What sets people apart is who is willing to prospect everyday all day and who is not. If you are very outgoing, smooth, and love to help people this is a great job for you. Although, it is a TOUGH job for the first three years. You have to attain footing and confidence from clients and keep looking for new ones in new ways. If you are great at meeting new people and getting them to listen then this is the job for you!

ConsThe first three years are hell and this job tests you everyday, but if you stick with it its worth it in the end.

Advice to Senior Managementdont set competition between your agents.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
