FINRA just announced the 2012 roster of financial education events with the National Football League. As the football season winds up, this is a great time to start thinking about reaching out to sports stars and fans in your community.
Every year at about this time, FINRA makes its football push.
It's great, but the timing is a little early for the draft season and a little late to catch last year's new recruits.
And it's not really a great time for advisors to jump onboard either, since by the time the events are announced, it's too late to plan anything big.
If you're prospecting football stars, look at this as a building season.
But spring training is coming up.
It's a good time to think about seeing the new talent who will be playing for -- or coming from -- your part of the country and making sure their families have the financial firepower they need.
