Today’s guest is XYPN member and founder of Mellen Money Management, Scott Snider. After starting his career on the sales side, briefly working at a bank, and finding his way to a wealth management firm, Scott ultimately decided to start his own firm—and did so while also dealing with moving across the country, his wife starting a new job, and having his first child.
Though this path certainly isn’t for the faint of heart, it has worked out well for Scott and taught him some very important lessons. In this episode, he shares his unique journey, as well as key things he learned along the way and advice that anyone hoping to start a firm should take to heart.
