Just wondered what you folks thought of getting a ChFC. Making my numbers without worry and have a steady pipeline.



My question relates more to the fact of perception of the client/prospect and creditializing yourself in your clients eyes.

I have the ChFC.  I also have the RFC. 

 
It doesn't matter in the eyes of clients.
 
So, if you decide to pursue it, do it for your own reasons, and not for impressing anyone else.

Amen, Skippy! That should be the reason to pursue ANY credential!

I must admit that the framed designations look really nice on my wall.

 
The wall in your office should tell a story about you, so make sure that you find ways to use it to market yourself to your clients.
 
Designations are ONE way to do that - but I wouldn't go out of my way to tell people about it.  Association memberships, awards, etc., all help with that as well.

What exactly IS "creditializing" yourself, anyway?  Sounds painful.
