People seem to come into the financial planning profession by some other route, said Rianka R. Dorsainvil, CFP®.
Lazetta Rainey Braxton, CFP®, was one of those people.
“To be honest, I stumbled across [the profession],” Rainey Braxton told Dorsainvil in an April 2018 episode of 2050 TrailBlazers where she discussed how current planners can help nurture younger planners or future planners to make a more intentional effort to enter the profession.
There was not a financial planning track at the University of Virginia, where Rainey Braxton got her bachelor’s, nor was there one at Wake Forest University, where she got her MBA. She had a mentor who was a CFP® professional and introduced her to the profession and the rest was history.
