I have been enjoying the information on this forum since December and I must say it has been extremely helpful.

  I have met with an been offered a position with SB & Principal Financial ..   although SB supports the first few years with a substancial paycheck, that is not why I am entering the business as i want to be pushed & driven to create my own rewards while helping people & businesses plan ahead. PFG products and business model interest me more than SB and since I have a background of dealing with small to mid size businesses ..i think i will have a nice network to work with....   Does any have any insight on Principal( I have searched the posts and read a little about them)   Any input would be much appreciated !   Cheers

If your target market is business owners then you’ll find the products at Principal much better suited than SB’s.

What exactly will your job be at Principal?  Can you be specific?  I have a feeling they want you to be a client relationship manager for retirement plans, correct?
