So I know that this is way off topic and this is not really the place for something like this but I am desperate and don't know what other place to go to for help. This is sort of a life changing thing for me so it is that important to me and if this gets deleted I can respect that, but like I said I am desperate for advice and help and I know there are thousands of MGoBlog users that are successful so this would be a good group of people to ask. Please just bare with me.
I have been extended an offer from a financial group as a financial consultant. Pending my passing of the series 7 and 66 exams, I will be employed at this place. So I just have a few questions that I was hoping any of you MGoFinancial consultants could answer.
- First, how hard is the series 7 and 66 exam?
- Is a financial consultant a good career path?
- I'm told that after 3-5 years you should be making somewhere between $60,000-100,000+ a year; is this correct/realistic?
- Do you like your job?
- What can I expect in my first year or so as a financial consultant? Money-wise and just experience-wise.
I don't want to get into any more details than I have already as far as which place this is, as I am more just questioning the career path itself. I don't have my college degree, just some sales background. Is that weird that they are willing to employ me? I just am the type of person who does not like not knowing what to expect and found it hard to get good opinions from my internet research.
