CWS, Certified Wealth Strategist..
Has anyone taken this or heard of it?
It might as well stand for Can't Work a Sale.
I know several people that are failing in this business right now and still trying to get their CFP and other alphabet soup.
To each their own...
By the way, I am not saying this is your situation, just a generalization.
I'm currently working through the practicum component of my NWRTLS certificiation. It's really going great, and my clients are sure to be impressed in my next newsletter when I share with them that I've finished all the course work and validation, and can now proudly trumpet my status as a Net Worth Reduction and Tax Loss Specialist. Swell.
