We are excited to invite you to our members-only group chats throughout the month of November, where we will be hosting a four-part series on “Careers in Personal Finance.” Whether you have a passion for helping individuals make, manage, or grow their money, or you’re simply curious about the diverse career opportunities within the realm of personal finance, this series is tailor-made for you.

Our goal is to provide you with valuable insights into various personal finance career options and to introduce you to experienced professionals working in the field. We have put this together to help you make informed decisions about your career path or simply expanding your knowledge in this area.


This week, we welcome Bob Shingleton.
