The Art of Finance, LLC
Fee-Only financial planner located in Austin, TX, serving clients locally and across the country
Philip Olson has called Austin, Texas home since 1997. He attended the University of Texas for Theater & Dance and spent several years as a ‘starving artist’ – waiting tables, parking cars, and making lattes. Eventually he became a theater instructor, where he fell in love with teaching and coaching his students.
Philip left the professional artistic world when a recruiter for a financial services firm said “This industry needs more people like you – a people person”. He was inspired to make a difference in a notoriously un-caring industry, and began to study for the Series 7 exam in 2011. He's been in love with financial planning ever since. In 2015 he went on to pass the Certified Financial Planner™ Board Exam (the most challenging certification in the entire industry), and now wears the ‘CFP®’ marks with pride.
