    Pros

    As a young college student, NMFN provided me with an invaluable opportunity to network with family and friends from a business perspective and learn about the priorities in managing personal wealth.

    Cons

    It was very tough to set up appointments and sell financial services as a young person who was not yet committed to this as a career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break new hires in with sit ins on existing client meetings, enable a certain level of cold calling or any other means enabling new hires or interns to not sell to family and close friends before they have committed to the career/job.
