Hello,

I can't find any threads about forum guidelines.  Specifically, I am wondering if it is okay to advertise a business by putting a link below one's signature.  I will be honest, I do turoring for financial exams/classes, including the series 7.  It is a relatively new business and my rates are very low, at least compared to some of the firms that rank highly on Google.  I was very surprised to see that one of them charges $150 per hour.

I don't think anyone will come after you.  I think your best solution would be to become a good member of the forum, offer advice to those about to take the test, and people will come to your site. 

What makes you qualified to be a series 7 tutor? 

When did you take the test?

What level CFA are you?

Element, thank you for the reply.  I agree with you and I am happy to help.  Here is some information about me:  I have 20 years of investment experience with the majority of this time spent as an investment analyst and portfolio manager.  I have an undergraduate and graduate degree in finance.  I am also a CFA charterholder.  You have to pass three CFA exams to become a charterholder (levels I, II and III)  There are no partial charterholders. You earn the right to use the designation after you pass the three exams and after they send you a letter esssentially saying that you have satified the requirements to become a CFA charterholder.  I passed the series 7 exam with a score of 94% well over ten years ago.   I am sure there are people more qualified and less qualified.
