Hi, I earned a bachelors in English and have a lifelong passion for writing (fiction, nonfiction, journalism, etc...). I am now studying for my series 7 (and possibly a 66 afterwards), but I was wondering if I could incorporate two skills into one profession, by becoming a freelance financial writer. I was hoping that I can write to financial magazines, business newspapers, corporate newsletters, and trading websites such as Forbes, CNN/Money, and Fortune. I can interview the best financial minds, profile a company, and cover the market. Is it a good idea? Is it lucrative? By freelance, I am fully aware of the benefits and disadvantages of being on your own. And I know I really don't need a series 7, but I was hoping that a license would give me some credibility. Please, offer me some advise how to pursue just that. Thanks!!
