    I took a class in college on marketing in the drug industry. It was taught by the global marketing director of a major pharmaceutical company.

    Dude was a baller and it was a really interesting class.


    Very cool! It really is a fascinating industry. We are about to start projects for Brazil, Norway, and Singapore...I'm hoping for some free trips

    Currently a college student but also an EMT-B. I'm practicing to become a Paramedic. Also going back for fire science (firefighter) and then law enforcement (police officer). After all that's said and done, I'm going to study in-depth biology/anatomy! :)

    I can't afford the way higher end things like people on here, but I can afford a few nice things here and there. Just save money and spend wisely!

    life settlements, and derivative on life settlements, some familiarity with US XXX regulation and UK pension liability transfer. Though my main part has always been derivative on life settlements. Look at extreme mortality for a tiny bit, as well as some population based stuff (as suppose to high net worth healthy individual, typical in life settlement), though was never my main focus.

    Thank you! No watches... too much inventory + competition where it is foolish to delve into that sector. However, I do get a very nice 25-45%+ discount across the board on almost any type of watch, so I can still sell them to my regular customers without carrying the inventory.

    Pretty much. And I've got a few more years to go (4.5) until it's over.

    This is less certain than it once was. Fortunately I got in the game after it became less certain, so I won't be terribly bummed if it's less lucrative than it has historically been.
