I appreciate any help and advice, it means a lot

 Im an advisor with edward jones in my month of selling.  Im realizing I jumped into this industry too young age 22, and I need more experience before I try to take on a position like this.

I dont think I like prospecting. I joined because I like to invest and I like helping people that want help. Im tired of chassing people to convince them that investing is good. So I feel that sales isnt for me.

1) What other opportunities are out there for me? I like finance, budgeting, investing, taxes, etc.  

2)If I left jones within the first month or so, would I really be bared from using my series 7, 66 and insurance for the rest of my life? 3) Are there any ways around it? I feel like I had no idea what I was getting into being that Im so young out of college.

4) Would these opportunities require a series 7?   5)How can I save my series 7 from jones?  What if I left and entered the industry 5 years from now, would that allow me to start again?

If you do not want to worry about EJ coming after your training costs....just stop working and get fired.

Please remember- it if were easy, everyone would do it.
