Just finished the CFP exam and feel like I absolutely bombed it. Is that normal? Every question had 2 legit answers. Brain is absolutely fried. Bourbon and cigar, please

6 week cram sesh for CFP. Any recommendations?
Is the cfp as hard as people says it is?
My company offered to pay my way through the CFP program, on the contingency that I will pass and also stay with them for 10 years after the fact. Is this normal? It seems unfair to make me pay them back down the road if I decide to take a better opportunity. It’s a small business that is worried I will leave.

If I'm looking to have the CFP completed 12-18 mths from start date, what would be a solid prep course/program you guys would recommend? Any pref to online classes vs. in-person classes?
Recently got my CFP and wanted to push more in the planning direction. Kind of young for seminars so I thought maybe do more door knocking. What do you think about no soliciting signs though?
How soon should someone start thinking about pursuing CFP or CFA designation? What are the requirements and is it worth it?
Those who have their CFP: how have you used/marketed it effectively to enhance your business? Just earned mine and curious how others have benefited.
Any recommendations for a CFP self-study program? Looking for something relatively cheap with good practice questions. No need for live classes. Thanks!
Considering becoming a CFP and CFA but I’d like to know what the job market looks like. For those of you who are practicing, how long were you searching for a job and are you satisfied with your experience thus far?

People - really struggling with this - was supposed to move to bay area for husband’s tech job. I can work remotely. But with COVID I’m not sure if we should make the move. We feel the world will move to a remote/ WFH mode. We want to buy a house and settle down before our kid arrives. Should we move to a cheaper city like Phoenix so we have a big house for cheap and 2 home offices. Am I missing anything?

How do you handle people who are like "I work 9-5, I can't get out of work, can you interview after?" No, because those are our business hours. Do you think we just work non-stop? Also, does anyone else get calls from applicants after 9 pm at night? Like I don't understand what makes people think that's okay? Then again, I am new to New Jersey, Kentucky was never like that.
