I myself wants to become a Financial Advisor because I have friends who do that for a living and I can say that they can balance their work and personal life in a daily basis. I also love the fact that they hold their own time. I mean they just report to their office but most of the time, they are outside doing some field work or meeting their respective clients.
One day, I started asking myself, how to become a Financial Advisor? The nature of my job right now has something to do with insurance but we cater for Canadian residents. It is more on the backbone of the system I believe and I think. it is something that does not qualify in becoming a legit Advisor.
