What would you give up for Aaron Rodgers at this point of his career? I know it would never happen, but I do think he'd put us over the top.
Gut is so mad the Browns are good. Pulling out the General Zod/Non theory of watching bad or good teams…not a good look.
Yours is pretty good. I'd probably move the Packers up to 4 and 5,6,7,8 are all interchangeable. I'd put the chiefs above the Bengals though.

LOL, therein lays the problem - you have to be good at sales, like REALLY good, to even have a chance to make a living in that business...because you will be trying to build a client base as a 20-something cold calling people to give you money while you barely know anything about investing.
And to stay in the business, you'd have to become really good at research and valuation. Bear markets wash out most because most are complete hacks that just repack/regurgitate sell-side research (also known as stock picking for fools).
I will give him that. Throughout college he always had various sales jobs somewhere and was always the top performer and and by a surprisingly wide margin. I remember he got a job at Verizon in college after leaving another sales job and was right off the bat making 75k a year when everyone else was making like 30k. He’s a super personable guy but I honestly have no idea how much of its his salesmanship or actually knowing what he’s doing investing.

Dang, at one point I had a job offer to be a financial advisor with my math degree background…it was $75k plus commission. They told me that the first few years it would be near zero commission because I had to build a client base, then it COULD take off.
Guess this guy got it to take off and is doing really well.
Maybe I made the wrong decision.
The 75k would have been a pay cut at the time, but I am not making anywhere NEAR what he is.
My total compensation varies based on a yearly bonus that is never below 10% of my salary but could be as high as 30%.
Salary is about $140,000, throw in my wife’s $25k and my bonus and I clicked the $150-200k.
$900k would be nice.
His wife is also a financial advisor and claims to make $150k. So he must do significantly better than her.

That seems really high unless like NY. Unless he’s an owner/ partner. But shit, kudos to him.
That’s what I thought. But me being nosey I looked up his court case on the county court docket and his wife states he’s made over 900k a year on the complaint.
Looks like most of you are poor like me lol.
So my buddy is a financial advisor and told me the last few years he’s made over 900k a year. And I’m sitting there like … really? To manage peoples money? I never would have guessed it tbh.

I don't have a salary (straight commission). Assuming you'd be looking for total income then?
Yes. I’m also assuming this is the case for my friend too.
I made the poll private since its your personal business, but I was interested in knowing what other people make a year. I was having a conversation with a good friend of mine going thru a divorce and it absolutely floored me how much he makes lol. Exponentially more than i would have guessed. So I'm interested in seeing just how poor I am compared to other people.

I get not needing one, but you don’t want one? Most of the non career type jobs are inherently shitty hours compared to career type jobs. I don’t get the appeal of working a menial job. If im still capable, id try to find something that’s I’m skilled at doing. Working at a bs job sounds terrible to me, personally.
