“My new MFA designation is a great talking point with clients and prospects. It shows that I am continuing to learn and grow as an advisor which ultimately adds to their confidence in the quality of advice they receive. I have found that the new designation also increases the frequency and quality of referrals. The MFA program is thorough, leading edge and fun. The combination of the written journal with the audio CD and the on-line tools is a great way to absorb and adopt more complex concepts and solutions.”
