Divorce Financial Planner Training Center

With much trial and error, I used my previous experiences as a business owner to map out a strategy and dive in head first to my new adventures in divorce. Eighteen months later I was averaging 5 cases a month and now run a very successful practice in Phoenix, AZ with 12-20 active cases going at any given point in time.

I believe that the reason the CDFA® credential is not recognized universally is that not enough of us are doing the work and I assume it’s for the same reasons that I had when I passed that last test. I felt lost and overwhelmed and had no idea what to do next. It’s now my mission to help as many CDFA® professionals as possible follow their dreams of making a difference for the families going through this difficult transition.

I’m a personal development junkie, a trained coach, and a serial entrepreneur and I assure you that with my help, you CAN have a successful divorce practice exactly the way you’ve envisioned. Let me show you the way to making a difference, playing a bigger game, and making a bigger contribution.

Certification for Long-Term Care (CLTC)

Whether you are an insurance professional, financial advisor, attorney, CPA, or other professional providing guidance to clients and their families, it is critical to understand that their needs extend well beyond asset accumulation, income distribution, and estate planning.

Today, working in these markets requires knowledge of long-term care and what decisions must be made well before care is needed in order to protect families from the emotional, physical and financial devastation that a need for extended care can cause.

The Certification in Long-Term Care (CLTC) designation was created in 1999. It focuses on the discipline of extended care planning. It provides professionals the critical tools necessary to discuss the subject of longevity and its consequences on their client's family and finances. Students learn how to mitigate these consequences by developing a plan to protect their clients and their families.

The CLTC designation has been recognized and supported by The American College, NAIFA and major insurance carriers.
