Speaking more broadly, Brolin notes that four out of five disabled people are unemployed, and it’s not because they can’t do a job. Rather, it’s because they feel trapped by the system since many disabled people lose their benefits—which they need to survive—if they work.

Brolin says he wants to serve as a mentor for any disabled person who would like to be a financial advisor, and he wants to help connect companies or educational institutions with resources to help make the profession more inclusive.
