Attendees had just completed the Business Owner Consulting Workshop (BOCW) given by IARFC CEO Ed Morrow. These students are getting a taste of the issues that business owners face and how a Financial Consultant would prospect to such potential clients. A day long session, the BOCW not only is a presentation of what and how to work with this underserved market – it gives the consultant practical tools to take home and utilize.
According to IARFC National Financial Plan Coordinator Amy Primeau… “The students are VERY excited and they thought the workshop was amazing!”
On with the Competition and the Finals!
