You'll have a lot of good, helpful advice for your pal regarding their work and their direction in life. They might be floundering a bit, wondering exactly what it is that they want to do with themselves. But you've had some practical experience in your life that has taught you some things about hard work and finding your path, and you'll be able to offer this experience to your friend for their greater good.
You'll offer them advice and guidance. They'll see you taking care of business and they'll want to do the same, so they'll follow your example. They'll probably feel as though you two were destined to come together, because your influence in their life will be so important to them, and they might be right.
