Are You An Aspiring Financial Advisor? Here are Some Influencers To Watch
If you want to learn more about the financial advising industry, blogs and podcasts are a great way to start.
Here’s a list of influencers, blogs, and podcasts that I personally follow:
Michael Kitces: Nerd’s Eye View blog, Financial Advisor Success podcast, and Kitces and Carl podcast
Ritholtz Wealth Management Team:
Barry Ritholtz: The Big Picture blog and Masters in Business podcast
Josh Brown: Reformed Broker blog and The Compound podcast
Ben Carlson: A Wealth of Common Sense blog, Portfolio Rescue podcast, and Animal Spirits podcast
Michael Batnick: The Irrelevant Investor blog, The Compound podcast, and Animal Spirits podcast
I know I missed a lot of them, but these are just my personal favorites. If your goal is to be a financial advisor or simply want to see what the financial advising career is all about, these are good places to start.
Keep in mind that blogs and podcasts are not the only way to gain this type of exposure, books are also an excellent way to learn about financial advising, personal finance, and excelling in your career. Here are just a few that I’ve read and personally enjoyed:
The Psychology of Money by Morgan Housel
Just Keep Buying by Nick Maggiulli
The Go-Giver by Bob Burg and John David Mann
