Automative/gas is poised to change dramatically over the next few years as Tesla and Google re-write the laws. If you aren't good at tech, I would not recommend those positions, or in 5 years you may be looking to change fields.

Hi Miss Lady, I reach out in sincere but you never responded, but the reason whyi ask you to contact me in private, is because you ask and not everyone, but if I share what is for you it will give the competition the opportunity to move either before you are with you. In business it is best to be first, other than that investment, talk with a good financial advisor, a good one, and do a little research of your own prior and afterwards. Good luck, do remember me.
