I did. He has not responded.

By gawd.... even John Mulaney would think that joke is too much on the straight and narrow.

OK, all clear! LOL

As expected (hoping), Spiff was joking.

You guys are pathetic.

I hadn't even looked at this thread since I posted that until B24 PM'd me this morning.  Of course I didn't call anyone to get him fired.  I'm not that psycho.  

You guys thinking I might have - that's psycho.

Well that's a relief.
My posts are for abrasive entertainment only. Nothing posted is investment, legal, tax or any type of advice, nor is anything mentioned true or even based on real events. Posts are complete fiction.

Whatever.  I think it's hilarious you guys actually thought I have the clout at Jones to get someone fired. 

Next time I'll make sure I use the italics.  Evidently some of you really need them. 

I'll also add this:  Nobody gave a rip about this kid until Gray revived this almost 6 month old thread.  The last post the guy made in this thread was back in March.  And all the posts he made were him whining about not being able to move forward with his FA career...in the middle of a freaking pandemic.  Jones shut the whole system down for the new guys and basically told them it was OK to twiddle your thumbs for the next 6 months.  They weren't singling him out.  They could just as easily have let him go and said reapply in a year when we fire hiring back up.

Cold call every single realtor in your area. Try to get 10-15 people a day to tell you F OFF or never call again. Read Go For No twice. Learn phone skills. Realtors don't typically have retirement plans. Learn and master the Solo 401k and how to position it over the phone to show enough value to book an in person or virtual meeting. It won't be easy. In fact it'll feel nearly impossible most the time, but keep plugging! Remember it's not what you say, it's how you say it..  The prospects can sense your inner feelings so you had better truly believe in your heart that it's their lucky day you called them. Lastly, SILENCE is your friend. GL!

Why did you make that face?  You should share your prospecting advice that led you to where you are today. I’m sure we could all learn a lot.

Welcome....and good for you being a 20 something and having enough interest to seek out an online community. 
I started off at Northwestern Mutual in my 20's, everyone encouraged me to get my CFP and a bunch of other credentials.....I decided that what was most important was building a client base and learn what my market needed, so I focused on prospecting and writing business as there was plenty of time for credentials.    In hindsight that has made all the difference in my career. Clients don't care about credentials, people who can't sell do.

I left in 2009 after five years and started my own RIA, a captive environment wasn't for me.  Haven't sold a whole life policy since leaving. 
I was fortunate to be in their biggest investment producing office in the country.....I had two advisors who were both each doing north of 1mill GDC back in 2004 take me under their wing and show me how to build the business.  They both left in 2008 and went to RJ.

Serious question...why does everyone have the same VUL and other shit? Do they explicitly comp you to sell that shit, or is it somehow indirect? Or do the sales guys think it's best because they're somehow trained that way?

They believe in it because they're trained that way. ROTH alternative / LIRP / whatever you want to call it. I never did VUL, thank God, but I did quite a few IULs that way. Thankfully most of them are still working as planned.
