Episode Two: Marc Sherman

October 6, 2021

In Episode 2, host Shyam Ganesh speaks with Marc Sherman, Founder of the Plan Pros. They discuss how his experience running a tutoring business and networking in his community looking for other business opportunities, led him to a career in financial planning. He tells us how he rebuilt an agency’s entire financial planning process, how that led him to a role doing financial planning quality review for a Big 5 bank, and why he leverages the thousands of plans he has seen and reviewed to now support financial advisors in not only creating financial plans for their clients but also learn the process of delivering them in a way that makes for a great client experience.
