How to Become a Financial Advisor

October 19, 2018

Today’s mini-episode of The Money Guy show is a compilation of road shows we put together for our #AskTheMoneyGuy series. If you’ve been catching the show on YouTube, you might have caught a few of these clips already. If you’re a listener, this may be the first time you’re hearing of these special episodes! We answer questions shared with us under the #AskTheMoneyGuy hashtag in the car while we’re getting from here to there.

In today’s listener-inspired episode, we cover a question we get all the time that we didn’t realize would come up as often as it does and that is how to become a financial advisor. This one is near and dear to our hearts as financial advisors ourselves and a question we’re happy to answer in this week’s installment of The Money Guy Show.

If you’re someone who loves learning about finance, you’re the one that cuts coupons and deliberately looks for creative ways to save money, or you’ve come to realize that personal finance feels like your “thing,” then being a financial advisor might be your calling.
