CFP Board Consumer Advocate Launches Blog: "Let's Talk Planning"

May 08, 2013
On May 8, 2013, CFP Board's Consumer Advocate, Eleanor Blayney, CFP®, launched a new "Let's Talk Planning" blog on CFP Board's consumer website, www.letsmakeaplan.org.  The blog will feature weekly posts with practical financial planning tips for consumers, as well as insights into the latest developments at CFP Board. In addition to offering counsel on timely and evergreen financial planning topics, once a month Blayney will remind readers that “financial planning is for everyone,” with tips for consumers of all ages and life stages.

The inaugural blog post featured timely advice for Mother’s Day, with steps to help mothers move toward greater financial security, including the recommendation that children pay for their mother to visit to see a CFP® professional who will put her financial interests and security first and bring her finances together.
