Ok everyone please quit sending me emails on how to become a Financial Advisor. I have been bullied enough that I will spill the beans.
According to CNNMoney.com I have the 3rd best job in America.
Before you run out and decide to change careers let me provide you with my thoughts:
* You have to be good at taking test and going to school
* To be good you have to love numbers (and I mean truly love numbers)
* This is also one of those professions that requires a unique personality mix – you have to be very analytical (to the point that you are truly a numbers nerd), but somehow enjoy talking with and building relationships with others. Trust me there are not many of us out there; most are good at one but not both and that can lead to limited success.
* This is also one of those industries where you are not paid what you are truly worth for a number of years (3 years of experience required for CFP certification & 2 years of experience required for CPA).
