I do numbers
Try to make financial sense of the future

Mostly in the context of life insurance
They earn income before they incur most of their outgo.
So they need to know how much would be necessary to earn beforehand.

Then I also need to tell them whether they are solvent or not, and what to do in order to stay in the black.

Presently, I'm a general dogs body for my SIL's industrial supply company in Carletonville. Do everything from the books to quotes and deliveries.

Next month, it is on to, hopefully, greener pastures. My best buddy, and our accumulative three sons, start a crypto currency mining operation in Joburg. I will be in charge of monitoring the machines input/output and temperatures eventually, but initially, will be assisting with the setup of the new premises and getting everything up and running. Network cabling and project managing the cooling system installation, and internet connections. Once all is up and running, hopefully, I can start sitting back a bit, and concentrate on playing the market and doing research..... Oh, and finish building my fourbyfour :blonde:
