Business Banker/VP with money to lend, pros and cons like any other career. money/benefits/PTO decent, but I review financials of business owners/entrepenuers every day that do much better, but have taken considerable risk.

I think today for a person to succeed has to get a basic education but then also specialize in something. Then, establish some other secondary income generating backup plan. Could be part time cash trade, investment property, consulting, IT or IS work, something. Be disciplined and driven, put that money away and don't get caught up in material things. Work your arse off until 50 and then hopefully you have a base and financial flexibility you can go do what you want and not step backwards
