I am right there with you. Used to make 50K + a year, (sales) then the crash.. a year and a half on Unemployment I was disgusted going to interview
after interview against 400 others and them settling on lesser experience for lesser wages.
I COULD NOT sit at home anymore, Just couldn't, sooooooooooooo.....
Today, Mornings at Starbucks (9.00hr, a pound of coffee a week and benifits) and Property manager in the afternoon (12.00hr) (an 1100 sq ft
townhouse, no writing a rent check every month) with almost all my belongings in storage.
So my day usually starts a 3am to the first by 4:30am, off.. run home change, Open rental office by 1pm and off at 6pm.
Yep, I'm living the life!
I may not be able to vacation, but I do have a roof, car,(payment) and I wake thankfull every day that I have what I
have, My Children, good friends, my health and always a smile for all that I meet!
Edit to add: I believe everything happens for a reason in life.
My son and I have decided to start a seedling business, I will specialize in heirloom veggies and other things that are not available in nurseries,
that most people would need to start by seed and just don't want to and would rather by the actual plant. Wish us luck!
