Good business opportunity
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 10 September 2017
Only a good business opportunity because they instruct you to get your Mutual Fund license first. Once you have that license, you cannot go and find another job to supplement your purely commission-based income. As a new hire, they need to understand that it can take some time for people to get their practice up and running. You better have a spouse or a partner who has steady employment and can support the household while you get your career up and running. Not recommended for single people who rely on a steady income to support themselves. You will go broke fast if you don't have what it takes to hustle and find rich people willing to invest. Most families I helped were up to their ears in debt and were looking for help to get out of it, not to invest. Did mostly loan consolidations through home equity loans or re-mortgage.
