This is me 4 years ago today in a cold attic at 0530 reading 2012 CFA books that had been left in the office.
The game plan was to do 20% more than the average candidate at every level to improve the odds of me passing, so I started early and clocked 360 hours for the level I exam.
Same strategy for level II & level III and as I am writing this I am a pretty proud CFA Charterholder.
Get crystal clear on where you want to be, commit and look forward to looking back one day like I am right now. Feel great!
