This certificate, together with the membership card and a pack of calling cards, was delivered today. There you have it, I’m officially a Registered Financial Planner. Yay me!

Now what the hell am I going to do with this new credential?!

I ran a free financial coaching contest a few weeks back and since people have been asking, I already picked the winner. In fact, I have met with her and we have hatched a plan to put her financial house in order. I also get in touch with her frequently, guiding her through the plan and giving her the support and encouragement that she needs to overcome her financial woes.

Of all the jobs I’ve had, this is turning out to be the most satisfying I’ve had yet, since I am able to interact closely with another person and I get to witness the results of my effort. It’s just ironic that the job that gives me the most psychic satisfaction is also the one that I don’t earn a single peso from. It’s just as well that I do also enjoy my day job and it pays me well enough so that I can do this sort of thing from time to time for free.

      Hi Jen,

      I’m very much still practicing law, although now I’m in the legislative department (moved there from the judiciary). This RFP/personal finance business is just a hobby, my passion project in a way. Strange ba?:p

    Congrats! i took the classes in Ortigas 2017 but haven’t gotten to get certification. I guess I just wanted to be able to learn the concepts and apply to my life. I can imagine it can be quite fulfilling, and perhaps timely since this generation of millenials seem to be aware of the reality of this aspect in their lives – something my GenX generation conveniently forgets haha
