I’m sure you’re all aware that the best-paying jobs are for people who are working at the highest levels, with the highest degree of self-sufficiency, and who know how to deal with the stress of jobs. But this is what makes it so hard to get a job.
Most financial job interview questions are not about the job itself but whether you’re a “jack of all trades” and can quickly learn the skills needed to do it well. Or that you’re a “master of none.” Or that you can “easily get fired.” Or that you’re a “brilliant.” The list goes on and on. There is no way to gauge whether you’re a “jack” or a “master.
If youre a jack, then you’re not a jack. If youre a master, then you’re not a master. If youre a jack, you’re not a jack. But you still need to figure out where your boss is, what you do, what you can do with the time it takes to get there, and where you can get an appointment. You haven’t even gotten to the bank yet.
It’s a good thing the economy has just completely tanked. This is why I don’t buy into the “you can start earning money from the projects you do today” line. It’s not that easy for everyone. And that’s why it’s called the economy.
Although I do find it strange how many people think that just because you have a great idea for a project that you can instantly become a millionaire, and people who have just been laid off suddenly got a huge new job. That is not true. In fact, a great idea has little to do with whether or not you are going to become a millionaire. What works for you might not work for someone else.
A good thing is that if people think that you are going to do some work then they just go ahead and start doing it. This is why I prefer to have a clear plan for how to do it. People think that you can do it all. It’s a great idea.
Well, if you have a clear plan, it’s a great idea. However, just because you have a plan doesn’t mean that your plan is good. I think that there are two ways to look at this. One way to look at it is that you can have a plan, and then just use that plan to make money. In this case, you have a plan, you just haven’t done it yet.
However, that same person would look at it from the other direction. That same person might say, “well, I always have a plan, but I just do it one day at a time,” or “I have a plan, but I usually end up doing it in my head.
Because you think you can always do it. You think you can and your plan will get you everything. You think you can and your plan will get you everything.
It’s pretty simple, but it’s also pretty damn hard to do. You don’t have to work in finance, you just have to be a little bit like a finance person. You have to have a plan, you just don’t know where it comes from. Most finance people have an idea of what they are going to do, but they have no idea how they will actually get there.
