First Post - Introduction, Purpose

It will be some time before anyone reads this post. But I wanted to introduce myself to the blogosphere. Okay, maybe I'm not ready to tell people my name and my location, but I'll tell you my A/L.

I'm 22 year-old male, and come March 2007, I will graduate with a MBA in Finance from a top 30 business school. I graduated with a BA in Computer Science and Economics in 2005.

I have been through the torture of job search, and I will begin my first (real) job in April 2007, working for a major bank, as a portfolio analyst.

As I get closer and closer to graduation, I realized that I'm suddenly without purpose. My whole life I have been told, nudged, prodded, goaded, and thrown at one goal: graduate from college with as useful degree.

And now, I am done.

What new goal should I set for myself? I thought about for a long time, and after reading some other personal finance blogs, I realized A) I needed a lofty monetary goal and B) I needed to blog about it so that other people who are just starting their careers have something to relate to.

Lofty Monetary Goal
Hit $1 million in liquid assets by age 30.

Blog Purpose
To share my progress, along with my own insights and experiences about finance and the corporate world.

I'm surprised your MBA didn't require any work experience...
