    I have my own business in the financi services industry. I have been doing it for the last six years. I wouldn't ever not be self employed. Knowing what you will make in a particular year just seems to dull. Go get what your worth.

    I love sleeping in and getting laid. Unfortunately the Meth Ho' dental plan has an outrageous deductible.

    As a suggestion, the market for educators in the US is saturated, but not overseas. If you have transferable skills that don't clash with cultures (meaning any of the maths, sciences, or English lits), you could be making bank overseas.

    My friend went to school to teach youngns math and physical sciences (4th and 5th grade levels) and upon graduation, couldnt get a job. So she turned her focus overseas and landed a job in Kuwait in a two year program being paid handsomely to teach in an English medium school. Plus she gets all her vacation time and benefits including airfare for two trips back and forth per year.

    I assume she'll have no problem getting a job once she comes back with that type of experience on her resume.

    [QUOTE=Rhinobreath;4463455]Take Mark Twain's advice. "Make your vocation your vacation." In other words don't choose a career or business venture based on how much money it will bring in but rather on what your passion is. Otherwise when things get rough you'll fold if you don't enjoy it in the first place. Love what you do and do what you love.[/QUOTE]

    I owned a bar, gotta say put your money where your heart is. But it can be difficult, sometimes when something you love to do becomes a job, then it's just another job and your love for it wanes.

    Combine your love for property and booze.

    Open a liquor store.

    I had toyed around with opening a liquor store with a buddy of mine. Find a location in a nice town, set up shop, and employee discount would be 100%. However, in my state, they only issue X number of liquor permits. About X-1 are all spoken for. The 1 left is for a town you'd be lucky not to get robbed at least 7 times a week.

    [QUOTE=51JetsFanInPA;4463354]I'm in a dilemma. I just recently received my associates degree in Early Childhood Education (ECE). [B]In Pennsylvania, becoming an elementary teacher is a mistake[/B]. My old man was an elementary teacher, and I always wanted to be like him.

    Here's my question. My brothers and I have a house that we rent out to some folks, and we're thinking about selling it and opening up a business that we can run together. We're thinking about buying an apartment complex or having a beer distributor. Does anyone have a business or have an idea that I may excel in? Again, I'm still in school and going to for my bachelors hoping the economy in ECE goes back up. The only bright thing about that for me is [B]school districts need male teachers[/B], but I don't want to take that risk and think about getting laid-off when I have kids.

    Thanks guys![/QUOTE]


    What?

    Why?

    The only thing we know that he does is post on a message board. And I'm not quite ready to say he excels just yet. Average? Doesn't suck? Sure, I'll commit to that.

    4. Catering business for high society Manhattanites;

    5. Astro-physicist;

    6. Plumber;

    7. Legendary Little League Coach;

    8. Prison Guard/Correctional Officer (heard there is an opening);

    9. Male Nurse;

    11. Golf ball pond diver;

    12. Cock fight trainer;

    13. Ice Trucker;
