Referring back to the heart attacks, seizures, etc. while driving, an old man had a heart attack and died and careened into my dad at a stop light and totaled my dad's Shelby GT500. This was back in the early 70's. Damn shame.
I am sure you could do some miserable operations job at a financial firm (trade support, etc.). Don't do this. You are better off being an engineer and at least having future prospects. Most miserable finance jobs are dead end jobs that a trained monkey could do. Arguably, a trained monkey could be a trader as well, but I digress...F the CFA. It's awesome, but it won't break down doors for you. You will prob end up going door to door for Edward Jones. A top tier MBA...
These shoes are objectively ugly, are they not?
A man with style probably progresses thru shoes this way:
AE --> C&J, AS --> Lobb, EG
A man without style likely steps up his spending (can't call it progressing) as follows:
Steve Madden w/ a RVCA shirt --> Mark Nason w/ a 7 Diamond shirt --> Bettanin & Venturi w/ a Robert Graham shirt
