In the early 1980s, I went to work for a pharmaceutical company and was told that I would retire after a few years of service.
My career ended abruptly.
The next day, I was told I would be let go, with the understanding that I was to have a short-term contract.
I had never thought about it before.
I didn’t know how to apply for a severance package, or why I would need to get an advance on my salary.
I was surprised to find out that I had a hard time getting my salary to go into a retirement fund.
It was then that I realized that I wasn’t a big fan of my old job.
My wife and I had two young daughters and were hoping to have our third child in the next two years.
We were struggling to make ends meet, and I wanted to have the best of both worlds, with a healthy pension, full time job, and some extra cash.
In the end, I decided to work at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center as a surgeon, a position I had held since graduating from the University in 1980.
After my stint at the hospital, I continued my training and became a cardiologist.
In 1991, I had my second child, and my wife and daughters went to college.
I had a dream job that would lead me to a healthy retirement.
But my life had changed since I began working in 1983.
Since then, I have become a very cautious financial planner, and spent my retirement savings wisely.
I have always had a good track record, but my financial life has become less stable.
This is why I am a financial planner.
It’s hard to get too high and too low in my financial statements, and if you don’t have a solid financial plan, your financial statements will get a little mixed up and won’t tell you everything you need to know.
That’s why I wanted my financial planner to help me understand how my money is going to grow in the future.
