Reggie, over at The Financial Coconut, invited me for a chill conversation about working in an advisory firm.
You can watch the whole interview here:
I was always intrigued by where Reggie’s set was, and after the interview, I realized that there was an interesting story behind their office and experienced how the production was done.
I got to give props to the person editing the video. He made me sound like I actually made some sense.
I went into:
- After joining Providend, did some past perceptions about the financial advisory industry change?
- When looking for an adviser, what should you be looking for
- Tough questions like how to find a good adviser
- What I think about robos
- Can we still DIY (do it yourself)?
- What advice will I give millennials who are figuring their life out?
- What defines a good or bad plan?
- How much is too much or too little factoring for our plans?
