Reasons for choosing Career
I chose this career for many different reasons. Some of the decision was based off my CVI testing, which concluded that I would chose a career that I would have power and responsibility in. Giving people advice on how to plan their financial future is a position of power.
I also chose this career because I enjoy helping people. Many people do not know how to plan their future investments and do not want to monitor them, so if I can get the education, I can help these types of people and make money doing it.
