As a willful and tactful individual, you can be successful in a variety of careers. Careers in sales, communications or commerce would be a great fit for your natural social skills. Likewise, as a leader you would be well-paired with a career in management or business. You genuinely care about others, which may translate well into a career path devoted to helping others. If so, you may find fulfillment in a career similar to that of Dr. Drew Pinsky, who was also born on September 4th. Your discipline will play a key role in whichever career you choose, very similar to another of your celebrity birthday twins, dedicated artist Beyonce Knowles
