I just set an appointment for a 401(k) rollover from a doorhanger prospect who I did not follow up with a call because they weren't listed. They actually called the office and left a message for me. I'm guessing the probability of that is about one in a million, so I thought I would share.

From the title I thought for sure this would be on TMZ!

Nice work!

Awesome Ms. B. My guess is the probability is even lower.

True, but you gotta think back... business cards at EDJ have pictures. Keep up what works Ms. B,
Good luck

You know, I actually don't have my pics on my business cards yet. You may be on to something here, though. I'm going to order my next batch with pictures. I could end up with a few more of these calls.



Ice, I'll leave the creative storytelling to Volt.

Don't.  Pictures on your business card make you look like a cheap realtor.

I agree, as good looking as I am I refuse to put my picture on my business cards.  Don't want the liability of old ladies acting like teenage girls everytime they walk by the kitchen and see my card.

 
...and they look silly, IMO.

I saw this thread was posted by "Ms. Broker" and had the word "Shocker" in the title...I thought it was going in a different direction, to be honest. 

Anyway, congrats on the appointment. 

 
 
Well done ice!  I see we share the same distasteful humor.  The same thought crossed my mind.
 
Seriously though, Congrats Ms. B!

Duke, I think all you men share the same distateful humor.



You won't be seeing any DILF or FILF threads out of me, nosiree.



And thanks! Meeting tomorrow, so we'll see how that goes.

I can assure you none of use, except Ron, want to hear about the DILF's you see.

We want to hear in graphic detail about the MILFs you see.  That is the thread that will get the most views in RegisteredRep history.  Be a game changer, Ms. Broker!

No picture, no cell phone #.


My reasoning: Cell # makes you look noob as hell. How many $200AUM brokers have their cell on their cards? Plus, once you get it out there, you'll have $2k clients calling for the next 20 years asking about Walmart bouncing 2%.

~just a thought~

Well, I was absolutely floored by this one. I wasn't expecting much. He said he had only been at the old job a short amount of time, so I'm thinking it's gonna be a couple thousand or so. It was $40k. <--- yes, this is still very exciting for me.  He had two old plans, and his wife also has one to rollover in a addition to that.


In addition to this absolute lightning strike of luck, I get a call the second I walk in the office door. I'm internally groaning because she wants to know what the minimum is to start investing. Tells me she doesn't work. She found me online. She liked my picture (apparently I look very friendly) and the fact that I was female. So she asks about the market, because her husband works at large manufacturing plant in our area and his accounts got hit hard. So I start thinking, hmm, here is some potential. I ask her where she used to work. She tells me, then tells me she has a retirement plan there that they send her monthly statements on, so I tell her to bring her statements to our appointment. I actually feel bad because I wasn't nearly as enthusiastic on the front end of the conversation as I should have been, because I assumed she didn't have money. It will be funny if she and her husband turn out to be a large account, which considering her husband is 50+ and I know will have a very nice 401k, it could very well happen.
 
So apparently I have racked up some good karma somewhere. I could really get used to this.

I doubt "friendly" is the adjective I would use.

You put out 1,000,000 door hangers?

 
Yes, Bobby, I have put out a million door hangers.
