Ok here's the deal. So now that I have my 7 and am about to take my 66 in a couple of weeks, i've been weighing my options as to how to start making some money. I have 2 options with where I'm at and by that I mean 2 teams who would love to have me onboard.

I've also contacted a friend at AG Edwards in a branch full of  CFP's and high net worth business. He's beent here over 10 yrs, does $700 in trails and I interview with him and the bom in two weeks.

Question, i'm 27. what do i need to be looking for? My issue with my current firm is i do not think any of these seniors will like the training program's payout structure enough to want to give me a fair shot. It's a 60/40 split with the 60 going to the trainee and grid. On top of that, a lot of them are greedy with the book and are reluctant to peel anything off for me to work with and learn the ropes with.

AGE is offering me a shot.

Is this the right approach? find a team who'll let me call on their lower tiered clients, train me and get me paid? or do i need not be so picky and concentrate in other areas? I wanna know what you vets think.
