Having held the CFP status/designation for 19 years, it has effectively been a huge WOFTAM ... it did little to boost my business (unless I spruiked it personally) even though renewals included an advertising "levy"...it earnt me nothing under the FASEA regime...the FPA didn't represent me or the FP industry as I/we would've liked them too in the recent RC & public scrutiny...emptying my pocket annually for theirs! - the relief that came on 1st July this year when I realised I was no longer a CFP was epiphanistic & refreshing & I strongly recommend it to any current CFPs teetering on the brink of chucking it in! :-)
