I am swamped so this is a quick update.
We are joining another practice on April 18th. There are three advisers in their mid 30s, each with 8-10 years experience. They are sharp and successful and family oriented, and everything we have been looking for in a team. There are four other support staff; I will be the 5th. It's going to be a great move for us, our family, our clients, and for the practice we are joining. Win win win all around.
We are meeting with clients like mad, doing annual reviews and sharing the news. We (I) also have a ton of work to do to transition our business. I am starting to work weekends as of tomorrow, for as long as it takes.
Oh, and the other broker fired his new assistant on Monday. He has a woman who's a friend helping him out now, and she's really bright but has no financial experience. So far they haven't bothered me much. But it's just one more unstable element in my daily life. Things at work and around him are getting worse, not better, and I cannot wait to be free of this place.
I ran once this week, lifted weights once this week, am going to a boot camp thing with one of the girls I ran with in Florida on Saturday morning. So I'm keeping fairly active.
My food during the day is fine. My night time eating is awful. Lots of afters going on.
So, I've got issues. But I'm too busy to deal with them effectively.
The good news is I feel okay, not depressed. The sunlight and longer days help a lot. My kids and husband are doing well. Lots of good stuff. Just a bit overwhelming.
I will update more when I can.
