    I am currently a freelance writer, and I am aways on the lookout for new online opportunities. I absolutely do love this career of mine, but I still want to achieve my ultimate goal which is to become a teacher someday. I also want to own/run a business in the future. Probably a restaurant or a bookstore.

    I have a full time job during graphic design work at a small family owned sign/printing company. I also do a bit of work online. My husband does seasonal work.

    My husband works full time building homes and doing other jobs in construction, and I stay at home with the kids but have online jobs to earn extra income.

    I used to work for a bank then for the government. I quit both to start writing which has always been my dream. I'm currently doing part-time jobs while I finish my book. I have some savings and investments in my bank so I think I'm gonna float for a year or two unless I get published or it's back to workforce for me.

    Retired, do selective HVAC-R/Plumbing on the side. Would rather do what I really enjoy - grow and sell veggies & seed which I'm easing into now. MUCH more money to be had in HVAC-R/Plumbing, but much less liabilities, stress, and headaches in truck gardening. I'm burnt out on the technical stuff but love the simplicity of working the ground.

    What's the book about?

    I'm not supposed to be working at all as I'm ill and in the process of applying for disability. That being said, I have to pay the bills so I work for cash part time. It exhausts me and makes my illness worse at times but it's what I have to do right now.

    I work full time. 12 hour shifts. 4 days on/4 days off. Wears me down sometimes.

    And I collect full social security.

    I work full time. And I'm in the National Guard. As the years add up, those drill checks become pretty substantial. And between prior active duty, and a few deployments, this part time job will be funding over a third of my retirement income.

    We're always looking for chaplains, too. ;)

    I have a full-time job doing administrative work. But this fact will remain true only until December 15, 2015. That's just days away.
    I just tendered my resignation from the company where I worked for 13 years!!!
    Anyone willing to give me an online job? hehe... :)

    So do you have any plans of what you might do now that you left your job? Wishing all the best.

    Thank you. I honestly have no idea yet. I'm currently giving myself a month's off before I start looking for work. I'm hoping I can do some online work, but with my Internet connection, it's not feasible. I'm kind of hesitant to get a faster one for fear that I may not find a job soon enough and I have to contend with the bills, haha.
    Anyway, appreciate the wish. Thanks again.
