Obviously not, if you think any of that is untrue.

160k advisory solutions
60k C Shares

On track to hit my targets and exceed them if one deal I’m working on pops.

Windy, I don’t care how you are doing.  Hope it’s great but you have proven yourself time and time again to be a liar.  Should we all of a sudden think you are telling the truth? If you are, awesome.

I’m not segment or gross obsessed.  Run your business as you see fit, I’ll do the same. See you in Hawaii.

Aug 31, 2009 2:06 am

No one ever once proved I was a liar, because i never once did. Believe what you may.



It’s all in good fun. I’m glad to know you’re following me on social sites though. That’s creepy.



<—Not a big advisory fan yet. I haven’t heard anything about Advisory, other than how it benefits the FA by annuitizing their business. In all the meetings and explanations over Advisory, i’ve yet to be told how it’s REALLY benefiting the client. If someone ever convinces me, i’ll move stuff that direction, but I just have a hard time justifying the 1% fee every year. When we hit another rough spot, that 1% fee will start to be questioned.

  If you can't justify charging 1% to your clients, when 80% of the rest of the industry is charging at least 50% more than that, you are in for a long, long career.

It’s not justifying it to my clients. It’s justifying it to myself that it’s what is best for them. I haven’t heard anything except, “You get 1.35% every year!!”. That to me doesn’t help them and until i can get a really good explanation on it, I just choose to not use it…

Remember Windy, I’m six months behind you without an office.  Hard to compare our numbers today but I saw them back in March when you were at my point.

HUGE fan of AS – A shares are a fraud in my opinion.

Not sure how you are 6 months behind me, i have only worked 8 months from my CSD. As far as the office, someone left and i took theirs. It wasn’t a huge office and most of the clients hated the other FA. Not to mention I was already posting those numbers before the office. I moved in this month, so our circumstances are no different because all the money made has come from prospects i already had. Not sure what your talking about when it comes to March, my screen says almost $11,000 gross that month. You got a long way to go.

Aug 31, 2009 2:27 am

We’ve all seen the screen shot but keep blowing smoke - if you say it enough someone might buy it.

Correct me if I’m wrong, you had a legacy office?  I think that gives anyone a slight edge over a true new/new.  If there were an office close enough to me I’d jump on it.

Aug 31, 2009 2:36 am

Buddy I wish I could show you my screen. You’d sh*t your pants and apologize, just saying. You saw a screen shot mid month of march that was dated for Feb. None of it was anywhere near accurate, when you saw it. Thats like me calling you a liar cause you said you grossed 10K this month, but i saw a screen for 2 months ago that wasn’t even updated.



As far as the legacy. I got it 2 months in. I got tired of being at home I got off my ass/couch and went out and found one. I went and introduced myself to every FA anywhere close and didn’t stop until I got one. No one offered me jack. The office was the same thing. I busted my ass working , then made sure our RL leader knew every 2 weeks what i was grossing and that i was beating most of the Seg 3 FA’s. I deserved the office and I made sure he knew that. When it came open, who do you think he called first? I wasn’t handed anything. So as far as i’m concerned, our situations are no different. I just might be a bit more aggressive for what I want.

You live in OKC … I live in a county of 17,000.   Do the math.

No one is worried about your numbers. Do they make you feel better to post?  Just be part of the community and post.  We all love you, Windy.

Theres the difference in you and I. You’re justifying why you can’t. I see 17,000 people that aren’t MY clients. Only you can change your circumstances. Less whine…



It gives me a boost when other FA’s tell me they beat me. Motivates me to do better.



Aug 31, 2009 2:49 am

This thread was not a challenge about you moron, it was a personal challenge against myself.

You really have a reading problem.  I was referring to the population of my county as a reason for lack of legacy and “open branch” options.  Not production issues.  I’m 300%+ of the goal EDJ sets and I’m popping people into AS and C shares every chance I get - I’m okay.  Windy, I’m done responding to you on this thread.  Glad you are so great and awesome but you can’t read so it makes having a discussion pointless.

Aug 31, 2009 2:52 am

lol. For the record, I know it wasn’t about me. You did however say you were going to do as well as me. I really just wanted to give you sht for being such an asshole half the time and make sure you knew that i whooped your ass. Just saying…



I do find it interesting how people get butthurt when you give them sh
t on their numbers here. The local FA’s talk trash to each other all the time about their numbers in my town, because it motivates them. It’s a good thing.
