If not I can always stay in or get a job at an airport.

Don't sell yourself short on the 37, those things are the workhorses these days and they look like a sports car compared to our ugly *** jet. Only thing I don't like about them is they have a single rudder and there have been cases where its jammed. IIRC there is only one actuator too which is no good unless they updated them. Our rudder is split in two and two actuators per rudder so you can have 3 fail and still have rudder. Pretty much everything in that jet is at least triple redundant, most stuff is quad.

It boiled down to my wife and little girl vs that job and I may try to do it again after my 2-3 year stint flying a desk is over. Wife will be done college and my daughter will be much older and more self sufficient than she was when she was 3.

Also depends on who is in charge at the time. The current leadership is hard up on only letting us fly for 2 years so I only had another 6 months left before they would look at swapping me out. When I come out of the office it might be totally different. At some bases dudes have been flying 5+ years and more. Plus now I have a lot more time to work on the Stang which is therapeutic for me.

My current tour is a 8-4, M-F, weekends and holidays off, no deployments so if you are in the military, have been in or know someone in you'll know how big a deal that is unless you are one of those ppl who enjoys going. They are out there and more power to them but that's not me.

I worked for Miller Beer the last 16 years as a District sales manager. I quit my job right before Christmas. I was so tired of the corporate world of suits and ties. I recently got hired on at a pest control company doing sales only but I am going to use this opportunity to educate myself more and do what I really want to do this time. Bottom line.....I want to be happy again.

I own a computer shop. I do everything from repairing ipods, xboxes and home user systems to building high end gaming systems and servers to planning and implementing Active Directory domains and networks for over 100 users and also function as an IT consultant/contractor for local government.

I also do all my own patch panel wiring and all that fun stuff.

Can't find pictures of some of the cooler things I do.











I also run the family pool and spa business..






It's nowhere near as cool as what Scotty or some other guys have posted, but it pays the bills and then some..

My corporate slave job is a good one by any measure, but my real job in life is to never allow it to beat the youthful ignorance I had when I was 19 out of me. Not selling out to the suits is exhausting, yet suprisingly rewarding

I joined a smaller CPA firm out of college and did 4 tax seasons. I studied for BEC and failed with a 72. I would've had to return to school because of the 150 credit hour requirement that went into effect in PA right after I took my test so I decided to scrap the CPA idea. I took the RTRP test and passed no problem. After a few years in public, I decided it wasn't for me. I joined a great private company and am now a controller making enough money to enable my wife to stay at home.
If you plan on working in your family business prepping taxes and it's a good gig then more power to you. Remember that a lot of private companies will pay good money for a good accountant...and no tax season!!

Haha yeah i actually love this job i love helping people out with their taxes. We've had this business for almost 9 years and ive grown up with it. As soon as i turned 18 i got my license and passed it with an 93%. I already got my EA license last year at 19 and now my goal is toget my CPA. We have almost 2,000 clients coming during tax season so we have done pretty good. This year we're gonna open another office and expand. My dads been doing this for 20 years and after he retires well its gonna be my job to keep the business up. Soon imma also get my insurance and real estate license to work on that after tax season and produce some extra revenue. I really love learning and thats why i do this because as you may know you NEVER stop learning in taxes. And keeping in mind im still 19 my brain is ready to absorbe as many things as possible lol

Good for you man. It sounds like you guys have a pretty rocking firm. Just stay focused and you will do just fine. I assume CA is also a 150 credit hour state to get licensed so you must be attending college also which I can empathize with you on that because I had a full time job and carried a full time college class schedule which was tough.
Hopefully your tax firm isn't the one going around putting magnets on people's cars in the area. I was at the Home Goods in Rancho the other day and came out to a tax firm magnet slapped to the side of my car. If it wasn't a rental I would have been pissed haha. Good luck this season.

I build things with tax money (prevailing wage), like schools, prisons, libraries, stuff like that and love it. I get low earnings in bad weather so its awesome.
