You don't need a college degree, but it doesn't hurt. There is a lot of learning involved at the start, and some of that involves self teaching. The job requires a lot of front end work at the start, and turnover is high for people entering the field due to the high pressure position. If you can make it through the first 2-3 years, the job becomes a lot of fun.
I attended college and took a internship with the company and until they offered me a job. I started as a recruiter and then moved to starting my own book. Haven't looked back since.
At the start you are doing a lot of cold calling working on building relationships. You can't be afraid of rejection. Once you start building a book the job becomes more constitutive where you are helping advisors achieve scaling there business and goals. You help them have life harmony by giving them the tools for the practice to drive there life of significance.
The part of the job is people you get to work with. You start to become friends with your clients.
Get to travel around the nation and meet a lot of great people along the way.
It's a lot of work and is a commission based position. It's not necessarily a bad thing but not for everyone.
