Brief Description of Duties / Responsibilities

I write investment advice articles

What Has Been Your Proudest Accomplishment Post-CWP?

I write articles that affect the investing decisions of thousands of people.

CWP Career Impact

In one sentence, what has CWP meant to you?

Work smarter, not harder.

How did your CWP experience impact your career? Immediately after graduation? Now?

CWP helped me land my first job out of college as a financial advisor. That job helped me gain an understanding of what people do and don't know about investing, which informs my writing.

What was the greatest lesson you learned from your CWP experience?

Again, work smarter, not harder.


What advice do you have for potential CWP participants? Current CWP participants?

A $10,000 job is worth more than ten $1,000 jobs.

What's your best advice for someone interested in entering your career field?

If you're dead set on becoming a writer, then I would look for freelance opportunities.

Last words of wisdom

Everything is a learning opportunity.
