I'm mentoring because I took the exam four times, and I want others to avoid the mistakes I made along the way. My ideal mentee has already taken the exam is looking for guidance and encouragement on how to pass it. I know it can a frustrating and isolating journey, but I also know that if I could pass, anyone can pass.
I'm a career changer, going from tax accounting to banking to retail to financial planning to retail to...who knows. All I know is that I have a deep passion for financial planning and the profession.
