Why in the world would anyone want to become a financial advisor?
First there is the intellectual commitment, and then you have to pass the rigorous testing requirements by FINRA and other state agencies to obtain the proper credentials before you can even begin to think about generating income. It is hard work, you have to get up every day and make something happen or you do not get paid. Then you have to begin to build a client base, oh and everyone wants to talk to a Financial Advisor, I don’t think so.
Well let’s put this in prospective, if this is such a bad industry to be in why is it that the people that get into the industry tend to stay and in most cases work well beyond normal retirement? Here are a couple of reasons: you get the opportunity to help people on a daily basis improve their lives financially and become one of their most trusted confidants in all of their financial decisions. You get the personal satisfaction of knowing you help people; you get the freedom to work with only those individuals that you choose, the freedom to set your own schedule, the joy of building your own business. Also the financial rewards can rival those of other highly compensated professionals.
If you are considering a career or career change, and are interested in a position that gives back to the community by helping others, want to be in a place where you have the satisfaction of knowing that you are making a difference, and in most cases a significant difference in the lives of those you serve and want the flexibility to be independent and be able to reap some financial rewards of owning your own business this should be an opportunity to consider.
