My name is Michael Kreza. This fall I will be entering my senior year. This is probably a little unusual for this course, but I am a finance major pursuing the financial advisory field. I do not have any previous experience in anthropology nor have I taken an anthropology course before. I am taking this class because I wanted to take two of my non-required courses in the summer and this class sounded interesting to me. I wanted to take a course unrelated to my field of study to get a different experience rather than just take another finance course.
This picture is relevant to me because it is the next step of my life. This picture is a broad outline of the six steps related to the financial planning process. It is also what I will be doing for a living after graduation. While finishing my senior year at Michigan State I will also be completing my education requirements for the CFP through GVSU. My goal is to complete the CFP exam at the end of the year and then start working as an advisor for two years to gain the necessary experience to use the Certified Financial Planner designation and go from there.
