Thinking about helping others with their financial goals

I’ve been managing my personal finance for a while and I’ve been really good at it. So I’ve been thinking on helping others with their financial goals, by giving basic advise like making sure to pay their debt on the higher interest first. Making sure that they can see what actually they are spending on a monthly and yearly basis.

I personally like helping others but never found the right channel to do it for the masses I think opening a new blog or page in facebook would do the trick.

Maybe I’ll write a book! Anyway just thinking her in my personal blog to just find ways to help others and have a higher purpose in life.

New Opportunities

After leaving Microsoft as planed I started preparing for my interviews this last Month.

Today I interviewed with Facebook and I notice that everything went well as I figured out how to solve the problem, BUT I just did not had enough time to complete testing and fixing the bugs on my code even though  I did had the right approach. Just the writing the actual code did go overtime so we had to sort of hash the end of it to solve the bugs.

So I discovered that the worst thing I do on interviews is that I talk to much.

Seriously I say that because I talked to much at the beginning of the interviews then I don’t get enough time to solve the problems.

This happened to me while interviewing with LinkedIn as at the end I did not had enough time to figure out the second problem plus I discovered that need more training doing recursive algorithms.

Well long story short today I got an email from the LinkedIn recruiter stating: “The engineering hiring panel decided not to move forward with your candidacy”.  So basically I did not get to a second interview because talking to much.

This is really bad news, it means that the same could happen with Facebook!

At least in Facebook I had enough time to figure the idea of how to solve it just did not get enough time to test it and figure out the bugs.

Hopefully I will get a chance to do the full loop, but there is a definite worry.


At least LinkedIn was not my first choice as I did not had the culture that I wanted, I just wanted the opportunity to move to California and that is no longer an option.

The worst thing is that I did knew that I was talking to much as I’m an extrovert guy, but I was so engage in conversation that just did not watch myself on time.

Facebook is my culture fit as lets me innovate.

I really hope that I get hire in Facebook, so I can apply myself towards short talking and more Recursion preparation in the full loop.

Otherwise I will have to lineup some contract work which bring good money but does not provide the culture that I’m driven to have.
