    Hi all

    I am new to this.

    I work in Finance. I feel a bit dumb sometimes because I didn’t go to university.

    My last role before my current one, when I was living in UK, was one of my best.

    I was a financial controller. I started as a finance assistant and progressed.

    I have kind of gone backwards now that I am back in Australia.

    I am married with 2 girls.

    Many of us didn’t go to Uni, that does not make anyone dumb though. If you have any questions please don’t be afraid to post here, no-one will laugh at you – I promise :)

    Hi [USER=100555]@Soccerooplugger[/USER] welcome to the forums and thanks for your honest intro. :) I think there are more opportunities than ever for capable people without a degree, not only in self-employment but also smaller businesses and newer companies, so don’t let that stop you!

    It’s great to have you here.
    Dave

    I have never been interested in nor been very academic. I learn on my own and take note of what other successfully minded individuals are doing :) do your thing.

    I went to uni but don’t feel smart at all! In fact many of those that went to uni work for entrepreneurs from school of hard knocks. Nothing beats real experience.

    Welcome [USER=100555]@Soccerooplugger[/USER]

    The world only cares about outputs these days – what you did when you were 19 is irrelevant.

    You seem to have done well to make financial controller. You must be smart and sharp.

    Congrats and welcome.
