I Have No Degree, No Connections & I Want To Break Into The Industry. Any Suggestions?
I'm 27. I have extensive sales experience in the automotive industry and even some premature banking experience with a. My resume outside of that is mainly managing retail locations. Went to college but didn't finish for personal reasons. I don't know much about Investment Banking in general. I know about investments on a lower level. I can discuss real estate, financial products and give general advice for where and how people should invest their money but not super extensive strategies. I feel like my talents are going to a waste. Was a killer in the car business but left because I never really cared about cars. It was just a good opportunity at the time to make amazing money. I just really wanna close deals. I get the job done. I'd bet on myself a million times over against anyone. Im a quick learner and I learn from practical experience. Once you show me something once, take off the chains and let me run free. I want to make big money too. I want growth as well in regard to a career. From some of the posts, that may not be a thing for a while. I don't come from an affluent background and unfortunately, a lot of my current and future decisions not only affect me but my parents as well.
Didn't mean to make this a long post. I just generally want some advice on what you guys think I should do. Be straightforward, don't hold any punches.
