  • What work would you *LIKE* to do?

    Being a musician and/or gigolo aside, what work would you like to do?

    I dig being a software developer, and want to continue to work in this field, tho as I get older only want to do about ~ 3 days / week.

    Wouldn't mind filling out the other ~ 2 days a week as a 50+ life coach / personal trainer, but the problem is there are already so many out there, some qualified, some not so much, I doubt there's room for another.

    So I find myself musing over other possibilities, perhaps something in the arts, maybe graphic arts / photography, something along those lines, like an EVH pixel consultant or something.

    What about you?
    The community here was awesome but the digs & spirit of the place has been in decline ever since it became a business venture rather than a simple collective and this latest gong show really brought the chickens home to roost.Necessity is the mother of invention, ergo: long and thanks for all the fish, love izzy.

      If you do the life coach thing with the intention of helping people over making money, I don't see why you couldn't. Undercut everyone else, and just do it for your own enjoyment.

                    Computer engineering student now and haven't quite decided yet exactly what I'd like to do with myself (although I'm sure I won't have that much choice right off the bat).

                    At the moment, I have my eye on a few things. I'd love to get into robotics/automation (especially automation of cars), medical technology (especially surgery-related) or something space-related.

                      Currently a Water Treatment Plant Operator.

                      Would much prefer to go back to doing electrical work. It's the perfect mix of brain and brawn.
                      Look how hard my heart hurts.
                      I need help, give me the works.

                        i have had many **************** jobs and honestly really love what i do now, would not change a thing. i get calls and emails all the time from people who love their new home and they thank me for the opportunity to buy a home. feels good. job is easy and pays well, love who i work with too.

                        once a month i get emails from bulk investors who buy anywhere from 3-10 of my properties. i do like 15 minutes of work for a pretty sizeable check. that part never gets old.

                            I always liked the idea of being a proprietor of a pub or small restaurant/diner/cafe. I actually like working in this sector of the hospitality industry, being a foodie/cook/beer nerd, but the only way I could see myself making a decent living at it is to be the owner/operator. Unfortunately, I have no formal education in sales/marketing/hospitality/culinary arts nor any means to get the capitol needed to start my own place. I just have some bartending and kitchen experience.

                            Right now I'm in the construction industry working as an electrical designer and CAD specialist. I like what I do alright, but it's not my life, nor do I love it. It pays the bills well and is somewhat stable, but still, I would rather have a job I love than one I tolerate.
