I'm cheering for him/her, I hope they crush it. Way better than modeling to 2am for 20 years. Sales careers are very underrated.

Have two buddies that have made a killing does this. The first started as a HH, then just started brokering fund raises for quant guys instead of placing them elsewhere. Pretty sure he's clearing a couple mill a year. Second found a fund with really high performance back in the early 2000's and basically took partial ownership and then took AUM from low 8 figures to high 9 figures-- he's retired now.

No clue what offers look like, but I know if you're good a networking and IR stuff in general then is a lucrative path.
