    I have been working at Freedom 55 Financial full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Over the last 15 years I have worked at different financial institution from different career channel, to being a broker to working in a bank environment. Freedom 55 has one of the best training system in place to get new financial advisor up and running. Teaching them the skills and habits they need to develop in order to get them started properly. The experience of the trainers and directors will add a lot of value to the new advisors.

    Cons

    Part of being a self employment business owner means you need to keep accountability to yourself. Sometime mindset training and motivation is needed to keep people focus. That part is lacking in getting new advisors prep for the up and downs in the first few years.

    Advice to Management

    Need to make sure they asked the new advisors for commitment for a few years. It will take a lot of hand holding and encouragement to get them to believe in themselves and that they will make a difference. Encourage lots of activities. The results will eventually come.
