The one thing that I can say about myself is that I am a finance nut. The name is Jim Stoker and I am practically obsessed with everything that has to do with business. I hold a BS in finance along with an MBA from the Duke University, USA. Currently, I am appointed as the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for a highly regarded company located in the heart of the city of New York. Although, you must know that the position that I am at today isn’t something which was offered to me in a plate.

I am 38 years old and the journey that I have had to take to reach my destination was nothing short of challenging. Life of a college student or university is very different from the life of someone who has stepped into the business world. I remember that time when I was studying for my BS degree; I was a carefree person with a lot of interests and a bunch of friends who were exactly the way I was. Looking back at that time, I have realized that change is something which can often be hard but it is also the one component which can show you just how much you are capable of.

When I finally completed my education and got the MBA degree from Duke University, I hadn’t realized that finding a job would be so hard, but reality hit me in the face when I hadn’t managed to get a decent job in my field for 2 years. I did small jobs as an office clerk and office receptionist for almost a year and a half and wondered when my life would change. Fortunately, around 2 year later, a position as a financial adviser at a small company opened up and I was called in for an interview. I got into this small yet reputable firm and this was the start of my success.
