If I could earn a living doing what I love most, I would be an entrepreneur in the financial industry, by being a financial advisor with a team of advisors. My goal is to help families obtain financial independent by helping them get on track to retirement and eliminate debts such credit card debt, student loans, mortgages, car loans, and minimize insurance payments, as well as educate current students on how to qualify for additional funding. I believe that if every individual can obtain a financial education, then the U.S. as a whole would not be in such high amounts of debt. Student loans would not be at $1 trillion dollars. It is sad to see my fellow peers and families carrying a burden of high amounts of debt. My goals right now is to help my family plan for their retirement, then reach out to my fellow peers by aligning myself with organizations that see the need for students to save what they can and how by working with their parents and the schools to qualify for additional funding that would help them borrow as minimum of debt as possible. I have also obtained a license to write business in life and health insurance, so I can help families with insurance as well as annuities. Eventually I will obtain a securities license to work in investments with the stock market, as well as mutual funds. I am working on gathering experience so that when I graduate, I’ll be ready.
