What does an Advisor do?

An advisor (or adviser) is a person with deeper knowledge in a specific area who utilizes their expertise for the guidance and benefit of others. They bring their vital experience and knowledge to contribute to their clients’ short- and long-term success. Advisors meet with clients to gain a sense of their mindset and ultimate goals. They draw from their experience, expertise, and perspective to help clients shape their goals and craft purposeful next steps. When issues arise, advisors work with their clients to devise tangible solutions.

Advisors meet with clients on an ongoing basis and update, amend, and redraw plans and goals as they are changed or achieved. They offer clients valuable materials and tools to assist with their pursuits and check in with clients if communication slows or becomes less frequent. Advisors serve as a resource for their clients and provide encouragement, advice, and support. Advisors need a minimum bachelor’s degree in communications or related fields.
