Hi Guys, I'm interested in getting into financial planning but also have an interest in accounting. I'm concerned with how they are fazing out commissions and how this may reduce incomes. Which occupation do you think would earn more out of accounting and financial planning currently and into the future? I have management experience but no experience in the financial services industry. If I go for financial planning and do the diploma do you think I would be able to get work? I'm in my early 30's and I'm well presented and well spoken. What is a rough idea of a starting salary and how long is it likely to take before I would be earning say 80K plus? I am the sole provider for my family and have a mortgage so if I take a pay cut I need to make sure it's not for too long. Any advice would be much appreciated.
