Monday Morning Magic from Inkandescent® PR + Publishing Co. — In celebration of Women’s History Month, this week, we go on a journey with Marguerita Cheng to becoming a Certified Financial Planner on this month’s episode of Money Mountaineering with Peter Neuwirth, FSA, FCA:

Pete asks Marguerita:

  • Why did you become interested in retirement income planning?
  • Tell us about your new book, Diary of CFP Pro:
  • This is your second book, the first being Wealth Management Rules. These books seem to summarize the culmination of everything you’ve learned in your career. Tell us how you got into the business of being a CFP.
  • How do you approach your business differently than other financial planners?
  • You are a big supporter of women and minorities and do a lot to help others succeed in the financial planning business. You were recently appointed to be a member of the CFP Board. Tell us about your work for that organization and why you are inspired to help others.
  • You are closing in on 100 episodes of your podcast show, Margaritas with Marguerita, and have interviewed many interesting guests. What is your biggest takeaway from hosting that show?
  • What are your plans for the future?

We know you’ll enjoy going on this adventure with Rita and Pete! Scroll down to learn more.
