Can't remember if I've been on here before so I'll go ahead and submit an answer.

I'm a real estate broker, property flipper and property investment manager in the Phoenix metro area. It's really fun and rewarding and also relatively flexible. Some weeks it's 80 hours and some weeks it's 20-30 hours. The best part is it is very flexible and financially rewarding. The worst part at the moment is evicting previous owners on houses myself or my clients have purchased.

I'm a stay home dad. Which means I get to drive my two kids everywhere.
When I've got free time, I do a little work for TP Mills.

That is quite the unique skill set. Don't know if I have ever come across a scientist that also does construction, or vice-versa.

Hmmm... perhaps this should be placed into the "unemployed" thread.

I believe most of us have a fundamental pain called retirement that is not being handled comprehensively in the market place. I help my clients navigate the conflicting financial trade-offs in life so that they do not make decisions that will hurt them later.

Retired NYC Police Officer, here. After 20 years, I packed it in just this past October. I'll play the role of Mr. Mom at least through the coming golf season, even the wife says I've earned an all-I-can-play golf year. After that, time to get a real job. :smile:

I designed single- and multi-family residential subdivisions for many years... until the economy took a dive. No, not the fun part (architecture), the roads, the utilities, the sidewalks, the detention/retention ponds, the pump stations... all of the really exciting stuff. Pfft. Anyway, about 2-1/2 years ago I changed directions and now design transportation projects. Design passing lanes, bridges, signing, striping, storm drainage, roadway widening... all of the really exciting stuff. Pfft. Seriously considering doing something completely different and something I actually look forward to doing.

Ah... the civil engineer at its finest. Nothing like water resource planning to get the blood pumping. (My cousin designs pipe flow models for skyrises...)

What's the career change going to be?

I make olive oil!
That's awesome!

Since mine has changed, I teach high school science and history, no more coaching.

I studied very similar things in college. Municipal design was my elective. Learned all about that stuff. Final project was drawing up a subdivision showing all drainage and sewers and water distribution. Never actually did any of that after school. Got into fiber optic construction and make the construction plans for telecommunication projects. I often wonder how it would have been if I actually went into my field.
