Why I am Passionate About Being a Financial Advisor

By Jeff Gilbert

So many people find themselves stuck in a career they aren’t passionate about or enjoy. In fact, two-thirds of people are disengaged with their job. I feel incredibly fortunate that I have a career I love and that I look forward to going into the office every day.

There are a few reasons why I am passionate about being an advisor.

1. Using My Knowledge

It’s incredibly fulfilling having the ability to apply nearly three decades of experience as an advisor and executive level manager to build a registered investment advisory firm that does business the right way for our clients and advisors. As I continue my education, I enjoy applying what I’ve learned to benefit those I serve.

2. Seeing Improvement

It’s incredible seeing people’s lives improve because of the financial decisions they make, as well as witnessing the growing sense of confidence that follows. One thing I love about being a financial advisor is having the ability to help others pursue not only their financial goals but also instilling confidence for their future.

3. Helping People

I’m happy when I can help clients achieve their short and long-term goals, worry less about their finances, and sleep well at night. Ultimately, helping clients work toward their financial independence enables me to work toward my career goals and feel satisfied and accomplished each day.

4. Building Close Relationships

Being a trusted advisor whose clients consider me as part of their family is the ultimate compliment. While people may work with a few professionals, like a CPA, lawyer, or doctor, none have the same type of impact as a financial advisor. Often, I serve as a friend, confidant, and advisor for life. The advisor relationship typically stretches through multiple generations, too. Additionally, the entrepreneurial spirit we all have contributes to how we build a business based on personal relationships.
