    I've been a Banker since 16...I'm 30 now. Received a bachelor's degree in Management in 1998 and master's in Finance in 2003. Currently work for my 4th bank since 1998. That's the only way to get your salary up in the "finance" business...jump around! Still looking for a company willing to reward employees for the hard work, education and experience that the company profits from :hammerhead: Haven't found it yet. Began lawn company with kids 3 months ago. God has blessed me with 10 regular customers so far. Just letting this blessing roll on to see how big it's gonna grow. God pays better :clapping:
