Dr. Jacob Gottlieb has degrees in two different majors, including economics and medicine. Jacob first became a medical doctor before realizing it was not truly what he wanted to focus on. With a mind for finances and investing, Jacob left the medical industry and pursued his passion in finances and economics. It didn’t take him long to earn his degree and start his investing career on Wall Street.
Jacob is convinced that the two careers are actually quite similar, which is what inspired Jacob to become a medical practitioner in the first place. Why are they similar? Well as Jacob says it, both jobs require the individual to be a risk taker and manager. As a doctor, one must be able to pinpoint a patients problem and determine how to fix it in the safest and quickest manner without causing further problems. As an investor, the individual must be willing to take risks with their investments potentially rising or falling with the stocks.
With such a huge influence on his life and career choices, his parents are proud of the accomplishments he has made, both as a medical practitioner and investor. Jacobs father was also in the economic field, while his mother chose the medical field. In any case, Jacob found his true calling as an investor for Wall Street.
One of the greatest things that Wall Street has allowed Jacob to do is support others. Jacob has always wanted to give back and help other people through his work and as an investor he is able to do so to a higher degree than he ever thought possible. Jacob supports many organizations around the country, especially within his home state of New York. Jacob is avid when it comes to helping children, which is why he has support Math for America for many years, aiding kids in their math and science skills all over the United States.
