Looking forward to this forum. 20+ year vet for a major. 1M+ in t-12. Entertaining the idea of going indy as well and doing a good deal of due diligence this year.

Been looking at LPL, RJ Independent mostly. Open to other ideas/ channels as well. Seems like a lot of hassle though. Just taking my time.

Lots of seasoned advisors here with a great deal of information.  What part of the country are you in?

Upper Midwest area. I've got clients all over the US, however. Roughly half my book is outside of my market on the coasts. Looking forward to hearing any thoughts/ ideas about transitions and firms worth looking into. Thanks!

Why do you want to go Indy? How fast can you run a 40 and how much can you deadlift?

My 40 is shit but my deadlift is breathtaking. 

Interest in Indy is more about control and flexibility. Potentially better array of tools to help support clients, and creative control.

I've looked at LPL and talked to several FAs that operate under their umbrella as well as RJ's Independent channel. I'm set to visit RJ this Fall to learn more about their systems and support. Their model tends to appeal to me more than LPL and the name is strong in my market. I guess my biggest fear is the shift in workload and all of the "stuff" that I, and the other advisors who will join me as a team, will have to do that is outside of helping clients. I don't know what I don't know about those items. Maybe I'm making it a bigger issue than it actually is. My timeline is 12-24 months so I'm just taking my time to learn more.

Confused

As a slave, you get told what to do and quotas to meet.  

As an Indy owner, you decide everything for yourself.

If I were looking again I would consider 

RJ either quasi independent or full Indy
LPL- didn’t like them when I talked last time
Schwab alliance was impressive for RIA but didn’t like two set of books with a broker friendly BD
Commonwealth
Kestra- probably a stretch for me
Stifel - new push in my independent so would at least take a look. 

Really depends on whether you want RIA or just independent.  My guess is you will spend 25 percent of your time on a regular basis actually spending time running the business.  That might be high as it is just a guess.

Why do you say RIA isn't a good fit for you?  What's your breakdown of...

Fee-based
Insurance
Fixed Annuities
Brokerage +variable annuity + any other commission business

Second question...

You said your "team"...are you doing $1mm by yourself?  Is your team doing $1mm?  Is your team doing more than $1mm and your share of that is $1mm?  Or is the "team" just other advisors you'll jump with, but aren't sharing clients/books?

I'm not asking because I'm curious.  I'm asking because your answer, along with your product mix (previous post) will impact where you should be looking in the indy world.

I’m (personally) producing about 1.2m annually. All me. 
Looking at possibly forming a team of multiple FAs in the next chapter, should I proceed.

The RIA route sounds like a lot of work at this time, thus my hesitancy. But would still consider it.

The RIA route is probably less work.  If you are mostly fee-based and fixed insurnace/annuities, you're crazy for not just going RIA.

It's funny how someone that is clueless thinks, "Meh, that sounds like too much work... " and doesn't give something a 2nd thought. 

It's not like someone doing 1mm GDC couldnt pay someone like Wet a reasonable setup fee to LITERALLY DO EVERYTHING for them.

I agree, but it is all a matter of perspective.  Coming from a captive world most want baby steps into independence.  They want all the fruits, but don't understand the extra it takes.  Depending on his production mix during his investigation journey he/she/it/they/them or whatever (Happy now Connie) will figure it out.  It really is eye opening the more you learn.

Dude, you trying to get put up for adoption permanently?

I realize this isn't easy to follow, and the LOGIC PARTY, that I will be heading in 2024, will be running on a new platform.  Ya know, based on...LOGIC.

So there will be no "pronouns" needed besides the ones you have when you look down in the shower.  Got a dick?  You're a "him/he."  Not so much?  You're a "her/she." 

It is not possible for an individual to be a them/they.  

I understand trying to compromise with Conrad on this, after all, he's a pretty likable dude in real life.

However, much like his previous enthusiasm for Dorsey Wright, I'm hoping that he will someday see the light, and realize the answer here is obvious...I've come up with a quick little chant to help everyone keep it straight..

Hey there you,
I've got some news!
If ya got a dick,
then you're not a chick! 

I saw Lia Thomas swimming in the nude.
As it turns out, he's actually a dude.
Why do I refuse to call him a chick?
The answer is simple, he has a dick!

Hope that helps!

Eat the rich is a fun slogan.
Just like vilifying Joe Rogan.

Tax the rich sounds like a lot of fun,
until all the rich decide to run.

It's cool now because you think they're overpaid,
But when they're gone there's no more Medicaid.

You probably enjoy your rent subsidy,
but paying your bills just isn't for me.

You may think I'm a bag of hot air,
But I'm still rich, so I don't care.

What I said in 2020 came true,
The Redskins have a name that's new.

And while we no longer have Eskimo Pies,
I have little doubt many more minorities will die.

You political hacks should just stick to the facts,
While we're not so lost we can't come back.

COVID was not a hoax,
You clowns saying that just look like jokes.

During a global pandemic, it's not too much to ask,
When you go indoors, just wear a mask.

If I were Fauci, I would've just quit,
Most people are just ignorant pricks.

Putting the unvaxed on a vent was a waste of time,
I'm putting in this line just for a rhyme.
If I were a doc, I wouldn't even try,
I'd leave you on the sidewalk to die.

I know that may seem rough,
But they are the ones that had to try and act tough.

Just think, if you weren't such a dick,
You probably wouldn't even be sick.

After seeing so many people go cold and stiff,
You'd think it would change the minds of people like Spiff.

It doesn't happen often, but I was wrong,
Belief in the sky wizard has him too far gone.

It's no wonder some of you are in the chorus,
Stop making arguments that are so porous. 

People on the left are also crazy,
They seem to love people that are lazy. 

If you read these posts and want to fight,
Just don't bother because I'm always right.

The MAGA crowd doesn't want babies aborted,
And the Libtard left doesn't want Mexicans deported.

If we all tried to find some common ground,
Maybe we'd get it right this time around.

It probably won't happen; most people will take the bait,
And go online to pontificate. 

For those of us, in the middle,
We can't stand much more of this drivel

It all makes our brains go numb,
And in the end we just think you're dumb.

If these poems annoy you, that's probably a bitch;
I don't care because I'm already rich.

Really depends on whether you want RIA or just independent.  My guess is you will spend 25 percent of your time on a regular basis actually spending time running the business.  That might be high as it is just a guess.

I am not at the big four as they are nothing but a whore.

Hi All, 

New to the site. Looking for place to gather firm/industry scuttlebutt and some good-natured banter.

Which part did you think was racist?

I would argue the mysogynistic part, but I think my avatar puts me at a pretty big disadvantage there.  

Way to put an exclamation point on that diatribe by the way.  Mouth vomit is powerful stuff.  You're a very cunning linguist.

To the contrary, I chose this thread specifically because helado’s drug-induced poetry slam made me laugh so hard I choked on what was my 14th Miller Lite of the day.

Dude-

Wait till you get to know Helado...on second thought he is already your new best friend. You brought out the softer gentler side, the poetic side...the likes of which have never been seen before on these forums.

Your greenhorn days are behind you already...welcome to the funny farm...you do have a straight jacket don't you? If not, Helado has a closet full...and check the pockets you may find some herb in there...

In his old age, BigCheese is getting bolder,
He doesn't know I remember when he was just a little footsoldier.

Jim and Dude will probably enjoy Advisorheads,
But Bald Eagle seems to be just a sped.  

I'm kinda bored these days; have too much time,
That's why all of my insults rhyme.

MsBroker and Richchick think that I'm to blame,
Even though most Americans feel the same.

What lawsuit was it they said?
The one that made all of those babies dead?

Oh that's right, it was Roe v. Wade;
Back alley docs about to get paid!

If you stick with anal, less babies will die,
The worst that can happen is a UTI.

I supposed I'm wrong, there's HIV,
It got Charlie Sheen, but won't get me!

I think the girls are also at odds with Spaceman Spiff;
Because he believes in the sky wizard myth.

B24 is creepy towards WarPig,
I just speak the truth, it's not a dig!

You think this industry is great, I bet;
But that's only because you haven't met Wet.

You might think he's part of your alliance;
But he's actually the Putin of compliance.

If you think B24 has become a hoe,
Just wait until you meet RainMo.

He thinks the best calcs are made by HP;
But he'll also touch you where you pee.

If you got your calc from TI,
Rest assured you got a good buy.

EDJ guys don't really know what I mean,
But that's because they're pretty green.

On their Divi trips, they really do try;
But that doesn't stop them from taking mustache rides.

If you're a girl that's not picky,
Perhaps you should meet our friend Ricky.

He's spent a fortune on hookers and blow;
I hope to hell he's off the snow.  

If you're wondering what's wrong with RIARules,
It's just that all CPAs are tools.

When they do our taxes they make a fuss,
It's crystal clear they're just jealous of us. 

Now lets talk about the guys at Merrill;
It seems as though their job's in peril.

Not to worry, there's other wires;
and they're always looking for guns for hire.  

If my forum wife is spudpotato,
I'll change my name to StudTomato.

Who knew Helado had this talent? This is like finding out your weird old uncle has amazing guitar riff skills that you've never heard about. LOL

I can see how it might be confusing.

At least they won't confuse me as a feminist.  

Where'd that Bald Eagle guy go?  I really thought I was gonna like him.

The newest AHer is Bald Eagle;
He's going to be the forum Smeagle.

He just joined the other night;
He picked a doozy for his first fight.

He probably thinks this is a power trip;
Little does he know I'm always a prick!

While he's at work at Waddell & Reed,
His wife comes over and we do the deed.

I hope he didn't come here intending to learn;
Unless I get bored he won't get a turn.

Nevermind, he's probably from Jones,
And built his book by door knocking homes.  

His AUM crossed $25 million today,
I bet he logs on with something to say.

Even though is paycheck is maxed,
It's not even enough to cover my tax.

When arguing with me you need thick skin,
But even then, you're never gonna win.

I hope we hear from Bald Eagle today;
He's gonna be mad when I call him gay.  

Millenials today are so easily offended,
I guess that's why this poem ended.
