I've been w/ Ed Jones nearly 5 years and am having a hard time drinking the kool-aid. Who's gone to LPL and what has your experience been??? Let me know.
What's been good? Where you able to ACAT most of your book? What independent firm did you go with? LPL? Give me more details?
If i had it to do all over again i would buy this book "Starting Your Own Practice" by Robert Fragasso. Google Robert Fragasso and you find the book. Its excellent for anyone wanting to start a Financial sevices company.
