Matthew Stearns Announces CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Marks
After recently completing the required education, exam, experience, and ethics requirement, Matthew Stearns recently announced his new certification from the CFP® Board.
"It has been a gritty 3 years since I started my firm in 2017. During the dog days of years 1 & 2, I waited tables 4 nights a week to pay the bills. After work I would come home and study. I found out pretty early that there was far too much that I didn't know about financial planning. I passed the CFP Exam in November 2018. Today I received my certification after completing the remaining requirements. The learning hasn't stopped and it never will, but it's nice to have something to show for it."
From the CFP® Board,
"Today more than ever, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals are an essential resource. From budgeting, to planning for retirement, to saving for education, to managing taxes and insurance coverage, “finances” doesn’t mean just one thing for most Americans — and “financial planning” means much more than just investing. Bringing all the pieces of a person’s financial life together is a challenging task.
Although many professionals may call themselves “financial planners,” CFP® professionals have completed extensive training and experience requirements and have committed to high ethical standards."
