Financial advisor career – is this a right choice?

For those looking for financial advisor jobs or struggling to enter the mainstream of that career, I have got news for you albeit a bad one. The job simply isn’t a money spinner. In fact, it could be worse.


I am going tell my own story, and exactly the way it is. I have been in this financial advisor job for about 10 years. I have worked hard, and in the most part I have been blessed with over a half a thousand client groups. Today, I have been forced to negotiate a sell-out. The thing is, hardly would one want to sell if it was that rosy. It wasn’t easy and the money simply wasn’t commensurate with the task.

In a 1 to 10 scale of simple ways to make money arranged from worst to best, I will give it a 3. Yea, it’s that bad.

I will let into what it means to be a financial advisor.

In the first place, you should be prepared to work for upwards of three years before you turn in a good profit. In the whole time you would of course be prepared to give your best working round the clock. The long hours involved in the financial advisor job could be a put off sometimes. You should be prepared to detach a little bit more from friends and even family.

Your clients could pose a different type of problem you know? A client may be convinced that you are good but the client may not like you enough or may tolerate your face but not trust you. That’s the issue; it takes a lot of time and personality to get some client to trust you with their financial advice.

Looking to make money very quickly? It might pay to look elsewhere. The financial advisor job needs time, patience and hard work before you can begin to reap the benefits.
