How will my future be like if i become an Independant Financial Advisor?

I'm currently an undergraduate and I just recently took up a job as an Independant Financial Advisor. The pay is based on the clients and I wonder since a degree is not necessarily a prerequisite for IFA position, am i making a correct decision? I'm good with people and numbers as well but I wonder if this is a good move. I don't like desk jobs and office jobs but I like the stable pay. This job has unstable pay
