Just looking over the LPL Ledger for "August 2006" and noticed Spikedkoolaid was listed as one of the top 200 producers for the month of a firm listing around 6,500 reps.


Now I may be just a lowly SA, only capable of making coffee & filing my nails - but by my math that puts him in the top 3% of the firm for production.


Not too shabby Spike....way to go!!!

Been wonderin' where you've been "SA".


Someone told me you made bail and now you're back at work. Way to go!

Not sure what THAT'S supposed to mean, Dobe!


(don't know how you could have found out about that night in Cabo with the midgets, the trapeze,the can of whipped cream, the polaroids and that AWEFUL bottle of cheap tequila)


I lurk from time to time, but haven't really had anything I wanted to say.

Well according to Newbie we don't have any BIG producers at LPL so it shouldn't be any big deal to be in the top 200, right?  ::dripping sarcasm::

Just guys like Ron Carson, who make somewhere around what is it....$6 mil per year? (I'm sure to Newbie that's pocket change)....And that includes taking summers off. (and that doesn't include what he makes coaching other Reps).


What a bunch of slackers.

What was said is that the average producer at LPL does 168 and change.


What is impressive about that?


They have a "Quota" of 125.

The impressive thing is that they have the ability to profitably service smaller producers, while having a platform that is sufficient for the multi-million dollar producer.


...and that average is going up...I'm already above it less than ten months into my first full year...

But you've said this is your 17th year in the business.  Are you really proud of your production?  Truly?

As usual, you've twisted what I've said (surprise surprise).  Yes, I started as an investment manager in a bank trust department in 1989.  I had no accounts...I managed investments for people who had a separate relationship manager (or trust officer as we called them).  In 1999, I moved to another town and took a job at a different bank.  This was the first time I was retail licensed and actually prospected for new clients, etc.  It was hardly the first time I managed investments, though.


That book was built pretty much from scratch to about $47 million and $375K a year production from 1999 to mid 2005, complete with a nasty bear market (and don't even start that sh*t about how that was not a bear market).


Last summer, I left with a non-compete in place and rebuilt my book to about $29 million and should go well over $200K gross this year, working on my own, paying the light bill, etc.,etc.,etc....all without soliciting my former clients (most of my best ones found me even though the bank told anyone who asked "we don't know where he went").  Newbie, you know all of this...I've said it many times in the past and it's bullsh*t to pretend otherwise.


...and yes, dammit, I AM proud of what I've accomplished.

Why do you care whether they're proud or not?  If they are, so be it. 


Are you proud that you sit somewhere all day and live your life through an internet forum?  - "I've got to be up early to trade my options..." blah, blah, blah.  I don't care.  No one cares.   


I've kept quiet and watched you spew bile and vomit all over this forum.  You sit there and chastise others for not doing it your way, while you get booted again and again and again.  I've gotten to the point where it's just annoying as hell. 


Are you proud that you sit, alone, somewhere all day and live your life through an internet forum?


Take your pictures of your stupid little dog, your useless banter and your holier-than-thou attitude and go away.  You are not providing anything of value to this forum.

It would be nice if the forum had an "ignore" feature (like internet chat rooms have,) where each user could click a button on any poster that they didn't want to see or read. 

Oct 20, 2006 5:56 pm

I certainly hope that's not directed towards me...If you look back historically, I try to add value to the forum.  The straw has broken this camel's back (proverbially speaking), in regards to Put/Newbie/Soon/Devil.


The constant bashing of others' ideas and opinions by this member has gotten way out of hand, and I had had enough. 


Use your search feature to see how they have treated forum members in the past.

Are you saying that it's wrong for somebody to challenge your point of view, but perfectly acceptable for you to challenge theirs?


It's called discussion, debate, interchange.  If what you have to say can be successfully challenged by another, then what you had to say is nothing more than your point of view.


You're a recruiter.  That's fine but if I were managing an office there is no way I would pay to have you make an introduction to me.  If the guy or gal who wants to work for me can't make their own introduction why should I hire them--they're not going to have a mouthpiece when they get in the bullpen.


I know, I know--I'm too busy to deal with resumes over the transom and all that.  Well, that's what an assistant is for.


It actually amazes me that you and those of your ilk can make a living finding jobs for people who are seeking one of the most desireable jobs in all of sales.

Oct 20, 2006 10:26 pm

80 posts in one day?  That's got to be a record even for you, Putsy.  Still, it's good to get them all in before this latest incarnation of yours get's the boot.


At one time I was told that the repetition of an action with the expectation of a different result was an earmark of idiocy.  Does anyone else see that pattern with ol' Putsy here?

Oct 24, 2006 9:49 pm

Actually, "Put/Newbie/Soon/Devil" is the only poster I get any value from. Please keep it up.

Oct 24, 2006 9:54 pm

Speaking of "Put/Newbie/Soon/Devil", one piece of his advice I have followed is to spend very little time on this forum. Instead I earned my AAMS in my 20th month at Jones (made segment 3 in my 18th month), and have enrolled in the CFP program. These are much more beneficial than the 'education' available here.
