I thought I would tell everyone on this forum that I am now a CFP.  It took me four times but I finally passed.

I guess failure depends on how you measure success?

I also passed the March exam. My first attempt, and glad of that. Costs a small fortune to get the blasted thing!

Congrats!

A small fortune is right.  I started taking classes in 2004.  $570 per class.  I had to take 7 classes.  I had to take the review class 4 times with 2 different providers $1000/each.  I also had to pay the CFP board $565 each time I took it.  Not to mention all the time away from prospecting/client meetings/etc...


Getting the CFP after my name.....PRICELESS!

..........hmmmmm


Major congrats.  Tons of work and effort.


Would you have pursued this if you had an MBA in Finance and Economics?  Just a question.  Don't everybody get their pants in a knot.

How has the payback been for this investment?  Is the cost and time justified by the return?


Thanks, Mandoman
