In my case, a career in financial planning gave me the perfect opportunity to combine my love of language and writing, with my interest and training in economics and financial markets. (I am one of those English lit majors who decided to go to business school, rather than law school, as my ticket to a decent paying job). I have found in my career that the ability to understand relatively complex financial concepts is important, but without the ability to make these concepts understandable to those without specialized training, you can only go so far.
I love being a CFP® professional, and am passionate about letting other women know what a rewarding career it can be!
