Great news guys!!

Tonight, I landed a full-time job with a pool/maintenance repair company. Now, it isn't something I plan to make a career out of, but it's pretty sweet. Pay is going to be around $1600-$1800 a month, which isn't the best, but it's pretty nice for a high school graduate with no bills, except for a cell phone.

The best part is that I'll be provided with a take-home company truck. Which means that I'll be buying a motorcycle I feel like things might actually work this time!

The training won't start until December, and until then I'm just doing the odd repair job for them. I'll train December-January, and then be fully set up and working by early spring. Too excited!

Making it work requires reflection! Look back at your last job and think now how easy it was. Now think the same about this one everytime you begin to hate it. Picture yourself at your last job and how this one may feel like , but it truly isn't!

My best advice to anyone is under promise and over deliver. Do more than asked and never ever complain or gossip until you have a contract! Listen to others problems and learn from them, don't make the same mistakes!

that's for sure. I'm been presented with the "I've seen vids start out like this" more than once.


As the boy scouts say "be prepared."

Yeah, it was a long hunt, and I actually got involved with this company thanks to a cousin of mine. I'm considering it a blessing!

Definitely! The guys who work there, that I've met so far, are really cool. Including the two owners of the company. And one of the owners, the one who ultimately had the final say on my permanent hiring, said that everyone I've worked with has told him I'm an awesome, bust- worker who shows initiative. So awesome!

Oh geez... I suppose I will.

Thanks for all the advice and whatnot guys, the only downside of this is that I'm waiting until December to really start making money. But at least I know it's gonna happen...

And for you guys, I'll keep a box of condoms in the truck.
