The structured training of the series 7 and 66 is really solid. I learned a ton in the KYC class in St. Louis. My visiting vet was really good and down to earth about getting started at Edward Jones. A ton of resources in the field and on the computer. If you survive the first few years the rewards should be there.
Door knocking is very difficult to do eight hours a day. It is a mental grind. 25 contact a day I am finding is nearly impossible to accomplish. The structure falls off pretty quickly after the KYC class so be prepared to manage your time wisely. The pressure is there right from the start so you need to be ready to deal with it. Be prepared to work Saturdays door knocking.
Advice to Management
It's a good program overall. More time in the winter months to get the contacts to get back to Eval/grad - shorter and colder days make it difficult to catch people at home in the daylight hours.
