I am interested in persuing a career path in the Financial Planning field. I am 26 now, and currently a Financial Planner in a Fortune 50 company. However, I’m questioning whether I want to work in corporate America all my life, or if I want to persue a career path in more “private” financial planning – mainly for individuals.
So for those of you who are Financial Planners right now – whats it like? What are the best aspects…and the worst aspects….of your job? Is getting the CFP worth it – or is an MBA more valuable? I’m questioning right now which path to take – 1) get an MBA or 2) get a CFP ($$ is not an issue since my company will pay for my full education).
Any insight you could provide into the field would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Only one answer? Are there any Financial Planners out there?????
