I'm burned and I hate wearing a suit... just looking for something to lower the stress level for now until I find something else I really want to do.
I would actually love to start my own business but I need the capital and some idea on where to start... I had a home improvement business that only lasted 6 months because my partner passed away... If I do my own business again it will be a sole pro and a different industry.
What I enjoy doing?
Beer (they have a Budweiser factory here but I never see a beer taster job opening lol)
Working on my Jeep (still learning as I'm new to this, I never installed a lift yet so I don't trust my self in this area yet)
Trade stocks (I'm a stock market geek and always watching the market, I do it for gas money but I don't have the capital to do large trades and make real money)
Video games lol
Swimming (swim instructor pay is very low I did tons of research and the classes and certificate isn't worth it)
Socializing (this was the best part of the sales jobs I've had in the past was meeting new people especially the ones who had their own business and making tons of money they would educate me on how they do it)
at the end of the day I am really big on work life balance. I would love to have some type of work were I work a few months and make a ton of money and take a few months off to enjoy life. Its a dream to me because I don't have capital and don't know were to start but I know it has to be possible. If I had the capital I would trade stocks for a living so I can work my own hours and get an easy part time job somewhere for benefits.
