My question should be a simple one to answer (I think) for anyone who has been in the industry for a while. I was discharged in 2013 from personal bankruptcy. I have since re-established good credit and possess adequate savings to a consider a mid-life career change. To what degree will my bankruptcy impede my efforts to get hired from a brokerage and/or get certified from the FSCO? I would like to take the necessary courses toward my Agent's license, but I'm not sure if I'll be wasting my money. Any suggestions or advice would help. I contacted the FSCO and my former trustee but they were not much help.
