Does it get any easier?
almost 4 years in with 25 mil aum, making decent money. However; where is the big pay day?
What are you doing?
Any managed money or recurring revenue?
Are you targeting any new markets or are you getting a narrower focus and touting yourself as a specialist?
7.5 mil fee based, another 3 mill 1% trail, the rest fixed income and mutual funds.
How do you market yourself? Are you perceived as a specialist or are you a generalist?
Do you have any idea how many clients you have?
How many "ideal" clients do you have?

Depending on how much is in fixed income and MF that isnt a bad mix. You are in the same boat I am in as I rebuild my book, just keep adding to these managed assets and one Januar first you will wake up with your first $25 million in true managed accounts and know you will have a good year no matter what.
