It's been about 16 mos. since I left Microsoft and became an investment advisor. The first year is always the hardest, I'm told. It has certainly been hard.
I'm way off of my target goals and not feeling very good about the future. The main problem is seeing enough people: I've not been able to keep my calendar busy. 15 appointments a week is desirable, but I've been averaging about 8 to 9.
I'm currently spending down some assets for the privilege of being in this job. It's an interesting situation to be in, and obviously such a position is not sustainable for the long term.
I've decided to begin a subtle job search.
