I interned at a firm right after college, which paved the way where I am now. My boss and I started it from the ground up and we’ve doubled our commissions year over year since 2015.
Everyday is a new day. There’s nothing routine about it. Sometimes you’re putting in 30 hours per week and others 80.
The best part of the job is constantly meeting new clients who all have a story to tell. You never know what’s going to generate from a lead. Sometimes it’s nothing, sometimes it can be a year making deal, which always keeps me thirsty for finding the next one.
Our deals generally flow with how the economy is doing, which can be scary because typically the job is over 50% commission based. You need to be comfortable going paycheck to paycheck early on in your career because it takes time to build rapport with others in the industry.
