From the Idaho Business Review

One of the first things Josh Miles learned at Oregon State University was that he didn’t want to be an accountant.

“I took my accounting courses and recognized that I hated that,” Miles says. “But then I took a finance course and it totally lit me on fire. I just loved the whole concept of markets and that sort of thing.”

During college, at the age of 20, Miles married his high school sweetheart. And while the couple both attended school in Oregon, his wife worked at a Starbucks where several brokers from a Smith Barney office were frequent customers.
