Date Posted: Aug/10/2017 at 12:54am
I'm looking to get back into the industry after leaving over 6 years ago. My first time around I was not very successful in acquiring clients and AUMs; however, after working in a different industry, I miss the fast-paced environment of sales. 

I would go back to my old broker dealer, but I'm looking into starting my own small firm-- any advice as to how I can get back into the game? I'm looking to get up and running by January of 2018.

What makes you feel you will be successful this time around (specifically on your own)?

The industry has changed quite a bit over the past 6 years. I would recommend getting your licenses again with a firm that will walk you though the new landscape. After a year or so, if you feel this is still for you, then go indy and never look back.

I think you better come to terms with how you're going to prospect differently in terms of both quality and quantity. It's still just an acquisition game. Join a firm or get your 65 and start your own. Either way you're going to be prospecting for 5 years.

This industry hasn't changed in the last 15 years... It is still about gathering clients and AUM....the rest is just fluff

I wouldn't want to start over now, compared to 6 years ago. I can't take a crap without justifying where it came from and why i am doing it. Maybe your world hasn't change, mine sure has.
