It was an honor to be featured on XYPN Radio's podcast.
XYPN Radio is designed primarily for fee-only financial planners. The goal of the host, Alan Moore, and his guests is to deliver insights and knowledge to advisors in the financial planning industry who want to build better businesses.
Here is how XYPN introduced my interview:
After working for his previous firm for 19 years and then being unexpectedly fired, Mark Wilson was forced to reset his life. Now the owner and only employee of MILE Wealth Management, Mark joins the show today to discuss what pushed him to start his own firm and how he is focusing on the successes ahead.
In this episode, Mark opens up about his struggles with his previous firm, as well as how he ultimately managed to become a partner. Listen in to learn the importance of focusing on the bigger prize and not just your next paycheck. If you are thinking about starting your own firm or making a career change, this is the episode for you.
While the podcast is a great way to learn more about my path from software development to financial planning, I will warn you that the target audience is financial advisors looking to build their businesses. As a result, there is plenty of industry jargon and details about my company that may not be interesting to non-advisors.
The typical XYPN Radio podcast has over 3000 listeners. I've already been contacted by several advisors who said they found the interview helpful and interesting. My wife and mother told me they liked it as well!
