Finally did it, left the "cult"ure I grew so sick of over time. More to come once things settle down. To those looking a them go VERY slow research everything from all angles.
JUST DON'T TELL ME YOU WENT INDY!!!! PLEASE...I BEG YOU....DON'T GO....STAY...SERIOUSLY..THERES NEW KOOLAID IN THE MAIL...WAIT AND JUST DRINK IT...ALL OF IT..and call me in the morning...
ring ring..."Hello this is Maxim." "Maxim, this is Jim Jones." "How you feelin' after drinking that lovely Kool Aid? Is your mind more clear? Do you feel as if you need to change what you have done and ask for forgiveness from Us? You know Maxim, we all stray from the teachings every once in awhile, even I. But you and I know, the only way is our way. Our clients can't be trusted in the hands of the evil people, who don't believe. You believe, don't you? You believe your life will be hell if you don't come back, don't you? Cat got your tounge boy? Well, don't you worry Maxim, I've already sent our special counselors over to your new office to re-endoctinate you. They should be there soon....let me know how it goes. Long live the believers.
Congratulations!!! Leaving Jones saved my sanity, my family and my finances. I am now at a wonderful credit union with all the referrals I can handle and over $2,000,000 in CD's to call on every month. People actually look forward to my call and want the help.
Jones is a great place to learn the business, but a tough place to stay especially in the urban markets. I had a dozen Jones offices withing a 5 mile radius and we were all struggling. Almost everyone in my area has left Jones for other opportunities.
Maxim - good luck with your new venture.
Credit - I'm in a metro area with 9 offices within 1 mile radius of mine. We have 1 office that is a revolving door and has been for 5 years. The rest of us are Seg 3, 4, or 5 offices and doing very well. With 12 offices in your immediate area, at a minimum, there would be over $9 BILLION dollars for you guys to prospect. Jones isn't the problem in your area.
