I’ve had a lot of jobs during my life–I’ve worked for a public riding stable giving lessons and taking out trail rides, been a receptionist, worked for a big insurance firm, a steamship company, a Japanese brokerage house, and done some freight forwarding. I did financial analysis for a bank that no longer exists (not my fault, I swear) until I realized that corporate life sucked. Rather than slaughter my cube-mates (prison=bad), I left and went into business on my own. For the past twenty years I’ve walked dogs in Manhattan, making offices everywhere a safer place.
Next year I’ll be able to retire, thanks to my amazing husband, and the plan is to sell off everything… and move to Mexico. I can’t wait.
