About Justin Green, CFP®, MS PFP
The real me.. (keep scrolling for the professional version)
In my free time, I love to spend time with my fiancée, family, and friends. I’m usually in a gym or somewhere by the water during the summer (I hibernate during the winter). I love to read business and personal growth books, listen to podcasts, binge documentaries, or watch Boston sports during my downtime.
My fiancée is a travel nurse, so we currently bounce around the United States every 13 weeks.
I believe that life is too short to take it seriously all the time, so I try to inject humor often. A little laughter goes a long way.
Certified Financial Planner™ Professional
Master of Science in Personal Financial Planning, Kansas State University
I decided to pursue my interest in personal finance a few years after receiving a Bachelors of Science in Sports Management from the State University of New York at Cortland. I was living in Manhattan, Kansas (the Little Apple) at the time and I decided to enroll in the Personal Financial Planning program at Kansas State University.
In 2016, I completed the education requirement of the CFP® certification and entered the profession at a small fee-only firm on Cape Cod, MA. During that time, I became a CFP® Professional after fulfilling all of the necessary requirements. In December 2019, I graduated from K-State with a Master of Science in Personal Financial Planning (MSPFP).
At some point, I will probably add more designations and add to the alphabet soup after my name.
Why fitness coaches & fitness entrepreneurs?
“I had a decision to make. Pursue fitness coaching as my future? Or become a financial planner?”
When I was around 23 years old I realized I was in the wrong job and the wrong industry. I went to school for Sports Management but for the past 3 years I had been selling cheerleading uniforms…
Since I was a teenager, I’ve been passionate about two things: Fitness and Finance
Therefore, I had a decision to make. Pursue fitness coaching as my future? Or become a financial planner?
It was very close! But ultimately I chose to keep fitness as my passion and continued to consume fitness coaching content.
Fast forward to March 2021 when I launched Assist FP, I found myself in a position to work with anyone I wanted to.
And I chose you!
I chose online fitness coaches and fitness entrepreneurs.
Because you’re my people and I believe the work you’re doing is going to change lives!
