When I was first coming into the industry I struggled with a variety of ignorances.  It was so overwhelming that it was difficult to know where to start, what questions do I ask and who do I call to ask them.  This is one of the very few industries (the only one I know of) that there is no common or widely known guide to the industry.  From what skills you need, what education is recommended or even how to find a job.  It’s not like in the Edwardian Era and before when you were born into the industry, now it’s a career choice.  A career path with no obvious door, paved roads or signs pointing you in the right direction.

My hopes are that these posts help guide future professionals along a smoother path than I took.   Please comment with your thoughts and perceptions to help guide your fellow professionals towards success.

Why Discretion Is So Important

Why Discretion Is So Important

“Discretion is the better part of Valor” and in our industry, it is a requirement! The only good time to bring up a Principal’s name is only when you are interviewing and it needs to be disclosed. Any other time it’s just unacceptable.
