Scored a 91 .. not that it matters, I would have been happy with a 70.


Time to drink a beer and pour a little out for my homeboy Hank Moody.  I did it all for you.

Drinking a beer and pouring out a little for me isn't enough for either of us. Congrats.

A pass is a pass ..  Told myself that very early on so I didn't have to study too much! Now it's onto the 66. I'll miss wearing jeans and a t-shirt but damn I am ready to be finished.

I hate to be a downer, but statistics have proven that brokers who score really high on the 7 actually don't last as long in the business. I hope you prove them all wrong, good luck!

I've been in the industry almost 20 years and got my retail series 7 about 10 years ago.  I scored a 96 (241/250).  I'm still in the business as an independent.  That 96 didn't help me sell a damn thing, but neither did it sentence me to failure.  Books like Story Selling and The Excellent Investment Advisor and programs like Bill Good will do much more for your success than your series 7 score.  A high series 7 score indicates a certain kind of intelligence, which may or may not translate to sales and relationship skiils.
 
The best indicator of success in this business is hard work and the ability to connect with people.

Like I said, a pass is a pass ... 70, 75, 90, 95 ... they all mean the same
thing right? I'm happy with a 91 and would have been happy with a 71.


I'm not a 22 year old yak fresh out of school who thinks it would be
cool to be a FA. Not worried about being "a success the business"  I'll do the
same thing I've done my entire career work hard and work smart ... I'll do
whatever I have to do to win.  Selling and building relationships is not rocket
science.

Not saying it will be easy of course but let's not over
complicate a sales job. Follow the recipe, bake cake, and enjoy.

That's right.  I was directing my comments at the poster that said your score was a hindrance to success.  The rest was for general consumption, not necessarily directed straight at you.  Enjoy the feeling of success, and then get after the real productive work...

I'm sitting for the 7 on March 2nd. In the EDJ SFS program I've been through the 39 chapters on the tablet and completed them with a checkup average of 88%. I have finals 1 & 2 and practice exams 1 & 2 left in the review period before the real deal so I'm down to my last days of studying. I've been busting ass and am definitely ready to finish the 7 & 66, head to KYC, and hit the streets on a door knocking campaign. I'm ready to begin eating this shit sandwhich known as the life of the newnew. I don't cry like a baby due to rejection, am very competitive, have a loud mouth, love money, and don't have a lot of bills. I was made for this.
