I have always felt that the career choice which you make should be based on a mixture of what you are good at and what you love. When I was deciding upon my career, that is exactly how I decided and it really served me well. I had many friend sin that time who decided to go for high paid, powerful jobs, or at least try for them. 15 years later I can honestly say that I made the smartest choice as man of my friends did get the jobs that they wanted, but they are miserable and wake up most Monday mornings with dread in their hearts, something which I never do.
It is for this reason that I want to discuss a particular line of work today, finance, and if this is something that you have a passion for then here are some jobs that you should consider.
