Why I'm interested in the financial world
I get asked all the time why I have chosen to work in the world of finance and to be honest it isn't an easy question to answer. It is certainly a field that I find to be interesting but it also one that can be very frustrating as well. Really what it comes down to is the fact that it allows me to work in a field where I can really help people and make a difference in their lives.
The big reason that I am interested in the financial world is that it is such an important topic. People talk about finance all the time and they think about it even more often. Given how important it is you would think that people would be well educated on the topic, this is in fact not the case. It has become very obvious that most people can really benefit from the advice of an expert. As somebody who likes to help people this is something that I find to be very appealing.
One of the other things that I really like about the world of finance is just how complicated it is. There are all kinds of things that you have to think about when it comes to money and this scares a lot of people. I actually like having the opportunity to deal with complex problems in order to come up with the best solution. This involves balancing a lot of factors at the same time and this is really what makes the process so interesting, every time you do something it has an effect on something else.
Most people when they think of the world of finance only really think about their investments. This is certainly an interesting area and one that I do enjoy dealing with but there is so much more to the world of finance than that. You also have to think about things like minimizing the amount that you pay in taxes or planning what is going to happen to your money after you die. These areas are at least as complicated and important as which investments you choose to make and they are areas that most people really don't put enough thought into.
Ultimately the biggest reason that I am interested in the financial world is that I really enjoy helping people to achieve their goals. It has been my experience that most people need assistance to get them to where they want to be financially and being able to help them to do that is something that I find to be quite satisfying. Making sure that people have enough money available to retire with or to buy a new house is not an easy task but when they reach that point you really know that you have made a difference and have helped somebody out.
