    Loyalty is long gone in the business world, people staying at a company for years and years is something of the past. I can tell you from personal experiance that you think you are doing the right thing by staying loyal until they want to get rid of you and that is all out the window. You have to do what is right for you!

    lol, I feel like a broken record.

    I have a couple years experience in financial services.
    but that has nothing to do with being the number 1 person. That was by pure luck of being placed in that location. I am very grateful.

    I was already getting secretly pissed at your new company deep inside because I noticed that you were not posting as much the last 2 weeks.

    You could squeeze by on less, but if you want to hit all your goals and make your bonus you have to work that much.

    And I'm telling you Chop that's not even the real reason I have been posting less it's just been damn boring on here the past few weeks lol

    anyways gl on your new gig

    I have said repeatedly in here how I called my cousin and told her first before anyone else.

    This could be a case of making the best out of the reality of the situation.
    Kind of like if someone deep down inside really wanted a BENZ but could not quite swing it.
    So they buy a Nissan instead, and start justifying that they like the Nissan more then the Benz even though they know in reality they are just lying to themselves to make them feel better.

    Actually chop, in that post that he quoted of me. The 2 companies I was referring two was company B and Company C (remember there was a third one that I turned down) because I thought Company A had dropped me. It wasn't until later that they came back out of the woodwork. And I really hope I haven't misled that company B is a bad job. It's a very good position, this other one is just better.

    whew im exhausted

    like i said, GL, hope your cousin doesn't hate you for your decision, that is the person whose opinion you should value most
    Problems? I just started a new job and I am leaving for a better offer. It is a difficult decision but I wouldn't classify it as problems. In fact I am loving life right about now.

    There are a million people in the financial services industry. Series 7 and Series 66 are very low licenses in the financial world. Not saying they aren't valuable because they are necessary but most people go well beyond those licenses. I just don't see how that translates into the number 1 person in your position in the country. Also don't even know how one could even remotely measure that type of statistic.

    With the way you just described it, topped off with a 90 hr workweek (laughable), I think you left us all with the impression of a job no one would want.

    This is my take on the Justin/Deshi thing.
    Justin originally said in the last thread company B was his dream job.
    In this thread he says company A is his dream job.

    What I think happened was since company B is the one that offered him the job first Justin willed himself into believing that company B was his real dream job even though company A was his original real dream job.

    Once he got to company B he realized that no matter how much he tried to will himself into believing company B was his dream job reality just would not cooperate.

    Lucky for him company A(the original dream job) came calling after justin thought company A was no longer in the picture and threw him a lifeline.

    This allowing him to return to reality and call company B what it was all along his 2nd or 3rd choice.

    CFA representing.

    Go get your CFP.

    Do what you got to do...the people at your soon to be current job will only talk about you for so long. Then it will be like you never existed.
    But go ahead and cross off any jobs in the future that are linked to any of your bosses there now though.

    Maybe he meant #1 person in the company not country.
    For if he meant #1 in the country this would put Warren Buffet at #2 behind Justin Cruise.

    not sure this question has yet been presented in thread (at least I didnt see it)

    what if Company A1 offers a job in two weeks.. .. in other words is there a company that is indeed better than even company A who you had your eye on?

    if so this thread might be revamped again in a month....

    I dont consider this to be true.
    Most of the business world is forgive and forget.
    I have left places in the past in ways that would be considered in bridge burning fashion only to later do some big deals with those very same people.

    The business world is about talent and making a company better.

    If I can make a company better in the future it should make no difference what happened in the past.

    Do you think the Cleveland Cavs would not take Lebron James back if they had the opportunity?

    Maybe not the "business" world. Try the "finance" world. It's amazing how many people are intertwined because people are consistently hopping ships here.
    You screw over a manager(s) that hired you, and he has any semblance of pull at another place you want in...not going to happen.
    In this industry, academics, credentials, and experience are everywhere, all day everyday.
    It's about the relationships you keep or blow up.

    If this kid is #1 at a multinational company (moving up from just a national company) then I'm really Tom Brady but we don't have a game until this weekend so I have time to post.

    I've always said it those that tell us how great they are, how happy they are, how rich they are, etc really aren't. Those that don't talk about that kind of stuff and have nothing to prove, probably do have all those things.
