This is a great inspirational story about a financial advisor that left her high-paying, high-stress career as a lawyer to pursue helping people with finances and lifestyle in a really rewarding way.
Financial planning had been on Natalie Bacon’s mind since she received her first student loan bill after graduating from Ohio State University’s Moritz College of Law in 2011.
She continued thinking about it while she toiled as a lawyer. It also inspired her to start a blog on lifestyle and money.
Finances weren’t really a topic of conversation when Bacon was growing up with her parents. She suspects that many other people were just like her: new to money matters and grappling with debt.
“There are too many options that can make you happy,” she said. “There is no reason to stay in a career that you hate — no matter what the pay is.”
