Hi Fishes,

My husband was into a small business but due to Covid 19 he had to shut down. Also, he lost his partner during second wave.

He is now looking for a job but gets rejected mainly due to gap. He did his last job in 2014.

His skillset is Sales and Marketing. He is also open for Customer Relationships Manager or HR department related jobs as he is also good at handling customers/people management.

He is an MBA in Finance.

Please dm email id me for his resume.

My uncle, and aunt, had about $750k in investments scattered across 14 different retirement accounts, brokerage accounts, annuities, on different platforms. They are 65. Three months ago they asked me if I could help them consolidate everything. I agreed. We started the process and this week the last of the funds came into their new Vanguard accounts!

Question: how do I scale this work organically, as a side hustle? I have an MBA in finance, but no CFP or other financial planning designation.
