A college degree or a background in finance is not required to become a licensed agent with WFG, but it does take:
A Willingness to Learn.
Studying and preparation are necessary to join the thousands of agents who pass their licensing exam. Many of our agents earn their license within three to four months, but you set your own timeline – you control the pace!
During this time, you will learn about the products and services you can offer, and build a foundation of knowledge that you can share with your clients and provide them with fair and sound support in the years to come.
Your Commitment to Build the Business.
As most of our agents will tell you, starting and growing any business, but particularly in financial services, isn’t always easy, but it is immensely rewarding. No one is expecting overnight success, so go at your own speed and build the business as big as you want it to be. You’ll be surrounded by people whose footsteps you can follow.
You can also start - and keep - your business as a part-time opportunity, or you can go full time. The decision is completely up to you.
Some Out-of-Pocket Expenses
Starting a business does incur some costs, but at WFG we try to keep these expenses as low as possible, especially when compared to others in the industry. Some of the fees that are required when you decide to be a WFG business owner include:
You are not alone. WFG believes in the power of mentorship, and our experienced agents can show you how to be successful here.

And remember, you have a team of several hundred U.S. and Canadian home office staff to support you.
