Re: What do you do for a living?

I own a pool service and repair company in Florida. I've been doing it for about 3 years and definitely did not plan on it but took advantage of an opporitunity. It's been doing well. I'm a licensed pool contractor and all of that good stuff so just trucking along!

Re: What do you do for a living?

I am a jazz pianist and singer.    I teach in an afterschool program at a fancy private school in NJ; Malcolm and Steve Forbes when there.  I teach piano and voice.   I also teach 1 day a week at a Montessori school.   I am currently preparing for a solo piano and voice record.  I'll be recording the end of the month.   

I also play at a church and do private parties and events.  You have to do a lot when you are a musician.  lol  

Before this,  I ran a very successful boutique private party business and did parties for Micheal Jordan, Sting, George Soros, Ron Perelman, Martha Stewart...many others.  Had a handshake deal... 50/50,  with my ex and he sold it without telling me.  With the stroke of a pen my life was turned upside down.  I had to start my entire life all over again.    Ce la Vie.....Smiley Sad   

 

I enjoy the different music jobs I do.   When my record comes out I will probably be hitting the road.

Re: What do you do for a living?

Truck driver for about 10 years. Mechanic before that. Overall I like what I do it has its ups and downs. Used to drive long haul over the road out a few months at a time. Got married started coming home every few weeks then moved into local driving. Currently I drive a chip truck for a small company with around 13 trucks(started with him when he had 3) delivering pine and hardwood chips, bark, sawdust from various sawmills/chipmills to papermills. Some of the products that the chips end up being are angelsoft tp, dixie paperplates, and cardboard boxes. Work around 70-90 hours a week on nightshift usually 2-4pm - 5-8am. It can be hard work with long stressful hours and over regulated probably wouldnt recomend it to others as a career.

Re: What do you do for a living?

Very interesting topic/thread. It's always nice to read what people do and how they got there.

Me personally - Degree in Systems and Security Engineering, before I finished my Bachelors, I was offered a position at Chase as a systems/network/audio video engineer, stuck with them for 3 years before I got bored/annoyed/agitated with Politics and all that jazz. Left Chase and started my own IT business. Had that for a year before I sold that. Moved into Telecommunications and had a few AT&T Authorized retail stores, did that for about 3 years before I sold them, decided a 9-5 was better at this point and got an analyst position in EMR for a Hospital. Moved to another hospital but same position. Been doing that since.
