Re: What do you do for a living?

To earn my sustenance I work as a forensic anthropologist with the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago Illinois. I gig Brazilian jazz in a quartet by night in various cabarets around the city. I gave up gigolo work after the Chicago outfit attempted to shake me down for protection money ....

Re: What do you do for a living?

I have a BBA and MBA in Finance.   For many years I had an active CPA liscense. I have a limited g/c license.  I have done a lot of different things operated a small chain of gift shops, partner in a regional CPA firm.  I worked in federal law enforcement for about 15 years and retired on disability in mid level management.   That was my favorite job.  My wife owns a mid sized real estate brokerage and I sell some and do the office accounting .   I am also involved with several fix and flip ventures.  I have moonlighted some at CPA firms and  big box stores  when everything slows dowm to nothing.  In 2008/2009  I worked for the state doing foreclosure prevention classes.   DW and I are retirement age and will retire in a few more years.

@Backwoodstime for me to apply my US Army Special Forces skills and help you collect monies! Come from the old school of 'breaking legs' ... see some interesting shows on TV repoing airplanes, boats and the like. Drooling to get in on some adrenaline action? Miss that piece in life! Smiley Sad
