A very rewarding career after a lot of hard work

Minneapolis, MN

ProsYou have the opportunity to run your own business and have true job security

Incredible upside income potential which is limited only by your own motiviation
Great culture and very supportive management

ConsIt's very difficult to get started and it can take years to build a successful practice.
Very long hours and low pay during the first few years (up to 3 years)
You constantly face rejection and skepticism as not everyone appreciates the work that you do.
You can't just try this career on for size. It's just too tough and you will fail. It requires a great deal of persistence and vision to succeed in this business.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
