I started my journey with Acorn Life in early 2020 as a new financial advisor, having come from setting up my own wine business in 2008.
Prior to this, I had my own engineering consultancy, and I have found that my former business knowledge and experiences have proved invaluable and easily transferrable into Acorn’s model of building my own financial services business.
As I have been self-employed on and off for over 20 years, I know it can be very challenging and lonely to build a business on your own, so having the support, knowledge and infrastructure of a highly accredited and award-winning company such as Acorn Life makes all the difference.
I have also been a client of Acorn myself for over 25 years, so I knew what the company and its advisors stood for. This was a big part of my decision to move into Financial Services under the Acorn umbrella.
Now that I have a couple of years under my belt, I can honestly say that the customer-focused philosophy and beliefs in Acorn align with my own, and their ‘one-stop shop’ approach to providing all the products and services that my clients could ever need has helped me immensely in building my business from the ground up.
Acorn’s support ( from a training and financial perspective ) also allowed me to achieve my QFA qualifications in record time.
I would urge anyone at a career crossroads, or the idea of being your own boss, with uncapped income opportunities appealing to you, to take a look at the Acorn business opportunity and engage with their Recruitment Team or with one of their branch managers in your region.
