Teaches at General Assembly

Paco Nicole

Everyone calls me Paco. I'm a financial planner who also does small business consulting. I started my own practice because I want to serve the creative community and I love connecting with people and giving advice.

I chose to be a financial planner because through my work, I get to know people and their stories. I get to sit down and listen to people talk about their ideas, aspirations, fears and goals. I get to learn all about these people. Through my work, I get to help people write the rest of their story - and to me, that's incredible.

I studied Business Administration with a concentration in Finance and Minor in Economics at California State University Fullerton and completed CFP® course work through the UCLA Extension Personal Financial Planning (PFP) program. Since 2008, I've worked in various capacities for business consulting, business management, financial planning and wealth management firms. My past experience is invaluable, but I want to take what I've learned and change the face of financial planning.

I live and work in Echo Park in sunny Los Angeles, California. I play in a band called Sweet Bump It. I ride my bike nearly every day. I founded a boutique bookkeeping company called Hell Yeah, Bookkeeping. I'm a co-founder of Allies in Arts.

I’d love to hear your story.
