It's been forecasted for decades that the death of the solo advisor is on the horizon. Many advisors feel it. Especially with robos and other technology. Many advisors are looking at moving to a larger firm or merging with others.

Back in January Michael Kitces talks about the "Golden Age of the (Focused) Solo Advisor in one of his "Office Hours". He goes deep on what the Solo-Advisor should focus on and opines that it might not be all doom and gloom for the Solo-Advisor.

As a marketing guy, I particularly like the focus on "differentiating" and the fact that the Association of Certified College Funding Specialist offers a perfect solution that advisors can use to be different than others in the market by using the college funding niche.

Check out his video. I start it at the "differentiating" part, but I recommend to take the time to watch the whole thing. Here is Michael's original post.
