I should add that as a CFP myself, I am horrified at the idea of soliciting friends for business. Never mind that the firm I work for doesn't do work for the sort of friends I have (LOL), I only offer to help if asked, and do just that...help. Not sell, not pester, just give impartial advice that is, as I always say, worth what they paid for it!
