That's correct, ice.  The minimum is whatever the office OSJ decides is with his/her time.  I think working P/T in an indy office is a good option for you, smoke.

Why don't you just get a part time job washing the sheets in an oriental massage parlor? No minimum production and you can take your work home with you.

Hey Smoke ....and I say this respectfully " What is the point ?". Why not move on with your new career and enjoy and be successful?

Kind of like a Part Time Car Salesperson , Part Time Appliance Salesperson , Part Time Taxi Cab Driver. Minimum level of effort and be honest you have or should have more committment to clients than simply a casual interest.

Cut the strings....that makes you move on. No lifeline ( real or imagined ) motivates. Supplement your income...your new career , work hard and be the best you can with your new challenge.

What is the point of having options until you decide what you want, focus on that and commit to seeing it through?  To paraphrase an old adage, you cannot reach new shores until you have the courage to set sail and leave the old shores behind.

Make up your mind what you want to do and do it, completely.  Stop trying to hit two targets with one bullet.

Either I am completely not familiar with this or what does "pass part 1 of your CFP mean?". From my experience, you take a bunch of classes, and then test for the entire exam. Is there a part one that you can take and then pass part 2 separately??!

There are five classes with tests at the end of each of them, THEN you take a comprehensive 10-hour exam on everything.

If you want them, have a blast with 'em, Indyone.  They didn't originate with me, and I'm sure they won't end with me!
