I have a guy thats willing to sponsor me to join LPL. I just have to pay him 25k for training?
Does this sound right to you that know?

I was with another financial firm for a little while as a trainee. Never got to take S7.
I was let go before (to much work at time effecting study habits).

Anyway I am wanting to get back into finance now that things have cooled down with my work schedule a bit.
This sponsoring agent wants to build a new office etc... and told me he would sponsor me if I paid him 25k for training plus rent for my little office within his building( Which I have no problem with). Why should I do this?

Never been in the financial field, but when I read you post, it sent up a red flag in my mind. You should find out all you can about this "person"/"company"....investigate, research and investigate again.
No company that wants your skills would make you pay for training. A headhunter will charge a fee, which is justifiable as long as they're legit. But I would be careful about this so-called sponsor. Sounds like he's just trying to get his office built with nothing out of his pocket.
Don't want to steer you wrong but go with your gut feeling. Good luck!
