“Find something you love to do and you’ll never have to work a day in your life”
I have been asked by many people, “how can you love finance?” I not only love it, but I also realized it is my niche. Finance, in its simplest form, is defined as the science or study of the management of funds. I grew up in a household with both my parents telling me that I was going to become a CPA because they are CPA’s. As a rebellious teenager, I constantly told my parents that CPA’s were nerds and I didn’t want to become a nerd. Little did I know, I would eventually become a finance nerd.
When I started college I originally declared my major as computer science. After a semester of computer science classes I thought business would be a better path for me, I just didn’t know what kind of business. I realized my path when I received a 100% on my first corporate finance test. I spent the rest of my college career studying hard and graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) with a degree in Finance in 2004. My love for finance has brought me back to UNR to pursue a Masters of Business Administration with an emphasis in finance.
Finance is the focal point of every decision we make. It doesn’t matter if you are a large corporation looking to grow or a person buying a pack of gum. Finance is very complicated and has many components. This is why I love it. It is constantly changing and will always challenge me to expand my knowledge. With my knowledge of finance I will always be able to help others and that is the purpose of my blog. I challenge you to find something you love and pursue it.
