    Pros

    after the initial 2 years of hard work the freedom to work when you want and earn alot, plus no start up costs. there is no end of training and the times voted edward jones the 2nd best place to work for in the uk last year, that speak for it's self. you might be wondering why im not still there, mainly i was 23 and couldn't handle working on my own all the time, the avarage age is 41. so please do bear in mind that you will only be working with one other person your pa. i left on great terms and will re apply in 15/20 year from know, when im sick of working with poeple!

    Pros

    The second best decision of my life was saying yes to the EDJ opportunity. I have put four kids through college and am well prepared for my retirement. I will celebrate my 20th anniversary soon and look forward to the next 10 years.

    No one will do the work for you. You must turn strangers into clients. There is no better way than starting with a handshake.
