Welcome, recruiters and hiring teams!
I am an aspiring financial planner, currently searching for employment while pursuing my CFP designation.
Financial planning is something I became interested in after college in 2014 when a family friend referred me to some financial independence (FI) blogs. I got hooked. While working as a Systems Engineer I developed my own financial plan, and after a couple years I decided try something new. While supporting myself I started a YouTube channel about FI which I ran until recently.
I missed working with a team, and felt a need to learn more. I want to find a firm where I can use the skills I've picked up as a lifelong teacher, a problem solving engineer, and budding business developer to help lead people to live a better financial life.
Between trying to take the CFP National Exam in July, and finding a job I am very busy, but I am in the process of writing a few articles. If you're interested in some of my past work, I used to run a YouTube channel/blog called RisdomFI.
