Growing up, Rianka Dorsainvil, CFP®, never imagined that she would dedicate her career to helping others plan their financial futures. But she knew that she had a love for math and connecting with people.

Her interest in financial planning began when she took a finance course at Virginia Tech, during a time when credit card companies were still allowed to visit campuses and encourage students to get credit cards, even though they were still in college and most likely without a full-time job. With her newfound knowledge of credit scores, loans, and how they can impact your financial future, Rianka started giving her classmates financial advice. Now, she’s a CFP® pro and owner of the firm Your Greatest Contribution.

Rianka’s desire to help people reach their financial goals was evident in the first minutes of our interview. Her warm, welcoming, and compassionate demeanor completely diminishes the myth that financial advisors just spend their time crunching numbers behind a computer keyboard.

Her Agenda sat down with Rianka to learn more about her career as a CFP® pro, how millennials can begin saving for their retirement now, and what keeps her inspired to help others attain financial freedom.

Her Agenda: What are your major responsibilities as a CFP® pro? What is the most challenging part of your job, and what is the most rewarding?

Rianka Dorsainvil: When you work with a financial planner, you want to work with someone who is dedicated and committed to that career. In order to be a CFP®pro, you must adhere to the four E’s: Education, Experience, pass an Exam (a one-day, six-hour test), and Ethics, the latter of which is one of the most important because it shows the standards you are held to as a CFP®professional. My job as a financial planner is to provide guidance and support around personal finances for clients, individuals, families, and small business owners, and to help them see that money is a tool and a resource for them to achieve their goals. It’s rewarding because I can see the tangible impact I make in my clients’ lives. CFP® pros are the ultimate advocates for their clients.
