My dream occupation is financial advisor. It may not seem like a world-changer, but I believe it is! Most people want to have an impact. After people have food, clothing, and shelter, they have a desire for something deeper. When people try to act on this desire, however; many are restrained by finances. Whether it is credit card debt, school loans, or too much mortgage: many people struggle with simple financial decisions and obligations.
Passed down from my father, I have always been interested in finance. Another thing I have always been gifted with is the ability to help people realize their goals. I would use my career as a financial advisor to teach people how to be good stewards of their resources and help them get to a point where they can start focusing on others. Like a chain reaction, each person who becomes finically stable can then begin his or her own individual movement to change the world.
To make this goal a reality I am attending a great business college where I will major in Finance and Accounting. At school I will make graduating without debt a major priority, read voraciously, and develop interpersonal skills that will become invaluable when I begin helping people become financially strong.
