Hi, I'm starting my own RIA firm... I spent my first decade in consulting and high tech, before quitting it all, traveling the world and focusing in on what I wanted to do with my life. My wife and I moved to an extremely remote town in one of the most beautiful places in the US (in my opinion, of course!) and now I'm getting back to my passion - money, investing and helping others. Excited to learn from everyone here as I hope to launch in a couple of months.

What firm are you going to custodian with?
Curious to hear who is still using start ups.

How do you plan on getting new assets?

I usually dont read the intro threads, but the title of this one caught my eye for no partiulary reason.

Serious question... Do you guy want the active membership here to NOT grow? Because If i'm the original poster, looking at the responses, I aint comin back.

I've no skin in the game, just an observation

It takes a little thick skin and a sense of humor to survive around here. There is so much to learn from old threads on here and current active threads.

I'm not a fan on shitting on new members, but missionshooter is right. You do need a thick skin around here.

I mean if you can't handle a little heat here, how the fuck will you survive cold calling and door knocking?

This is very true.

But try looking at the responses through the eyes of a new guy just arrived. (Just like we should all do, in life and all matters business related). I think if you guys want this place to grow, new arrivals should be handled a little differently. There’s plenty of time to test their skin for thickness. Make em sticky first. Show them value first, like you show clients whom you latter shitslam annuities for the rip😂(joke, but it’s not a bad analogy, you get the idea)

This “industry” is already pretty overly saturated. And, at the firm, we already give way too much credence to new FAs. The successful among us likely never think about the noobs .... it’s sink or swim, coddling is enabling.👍🏿🤙🏿🤴🏿
Good luck and good selling.

I think we can be nicer if in the intro instructions you have the disclaimer that you will fail...

Well, that was interesting. I'm honestly not surprised on the replies, as I noticed a similar feel to the other forum threads I was able to access. I've definitely found some good information reading through older threads, so I appreciate that.

If you don’t have thick enough skin to take it then you should go back to snowflake land. Gotta deal with good and bad
