The financial planning process can help you reach your goal, no matter what it is.
It’s a myth that financial planning is only for the wealthy. No matter how much money you have, everyone can benefit from having a financial plan and working with a financial planner who puts the client’s interest first.
Get financial advice from a competent and ethical professional. Look for the CFP certification.
Not everyone who calls themselves a financial planner is qualified to do so. Those who earn the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER certification meet rigorous education, exam, experience and ethics requirements, and agree to place the interests of their clients first.
