it depends on your target market. HNW go for cfp, otherwise letters mean nothing.

Don’t waste your time now. Spend all time growing a business. Once survive then get certifications.

Bang out the awma real quick. It’s like a mini cfp. Will build knowledge real quick and give u some letters. I would t do cfp etc until u are further along.

I've known 3 people who tried to do cfp while staying at $0. none of them got their cfp done because they washed out. I would build book until it pays the basics first... you can't eat a cfp certification.
