I know this isn't what this section of the forum is for, but I'm hoping a mortgage advisor reads this and can answer a few questions, please.

I'm considering doing CeMap training with the intention of joining a network as a self-employed advisor and being supervised by the network while I gain competent advisor status. I believe there are a few networks that accept newly qualified advisors, please correct me if I'm wrong.

What I really want to know is how viable it is to be a part-time self-employed advisor and how much of my workload could be carried out outside normal 9-5 working hours?

Any advice on starting a career in this field would be greatly appreciated.

    Oddly enough this exact same question was asked a few days ago.

    Coincidentally the same wording also. Me thinks he didn't get the answer he was looking for.

    I always thought the trick was to ask the same question in a different way in order to get the answer you want? Asking the same question the same way will be the same answer.
