Ideal Job III
Personal finances has been a long-term interest of mine. I am drawn to speakers on this topic. People like Larry Burkett and Dave Ramsey are people I will listen to and take advise from. Their books are ones that I will buy and read. I am conservative with my money and I will even be bold enough to say that I am pretty good at handling finances. I like this overlap of the practical with matters of faith. There is a nice combination there. Working on finances is very clean and it is often about getting things in the right order and then making some adjustments to make things better. I would like to find a position where I take a financial mess in peoples lives and give them some order. I could see myself as a financial counselor where I advise, set up budgets, and periodically review progress. It would be objective enough that it would not be emotionally draining. I think I could be true to myself in this sort of role.
