In college, my professor made each student stand up to say what we were passionate about. I hated this exercise, because I had no idea! I remember feeling irritated as I gave my usual unimaginative answer: “I’m passionate about traveling.” But five semesters and five answers later, I finally got to my real truth: a passion for learning and service to others.
In my years of study, I told myself that if I pursued accounting, I would do my time working in the basement of some accounting firm for years… but it would all be worth it, because eventually “they would let me work with people.”
Later, RPG was one of my internships in accounting and finance. I saw the difference right away. I would have the opportunity to serve and work closely with individuals and their families from Day One! That is what I’m passionate about, and I’m so glad I pursued a career in financial planning at RPG.
