Funny thing is in the old days I liked my job but was not passionate about it.

All my bad luck "MAY" just help me get a job I LOVE and am PASSIONATE about it.

How many times have you all heard the ole saying " When one door closes another opens"

I just have to find the damn door

My grandfather said that when a door closes, make sure it's actually locked before climbing through the window

Don't throw away your experience. These days it's hard to find a true professional in any sector. You may not be passionate about it but I know you are damn good. Save your passion for your wife, kids and close friends. Your job is to serve one purpose- a paycheque. If you can find a career that fulfills that need you are lucky, but treat it as what it really is. Money. And that money is to better yourself and your family. For me, joy comes after work when I can be with the ones I love, and leave the job behind me.

Things will get better. They always do. I'm still kicking myself for not buying up Ford stock when it was $1 in 2007. You have to understand that when something can't get any lower, it can ONLY go up! That includes YOU my friend

Chin up! With your work history, you won't need any luck.

Thanks for the positive vibes and kind words. I do hope and do not wish to throw out my experience.

I am just saying I will look at any opportunity with an open mind and do not need to be in the same biz as I have always been. I might even enjoy a change.

Managing people and jobs is pretty much the same no matter what the task is in the end.

I am confidant in my ability to lead.

Hey Mike,

Why don't you start a commercial building inspection company, some people sub all the work out, I don't, but many people do and its still very lucrative, if you would like more information call me tomorrow 480.309.4967.

I can get you headed in the right direction if you would like some help. Many people make six figure incomes just subbing the work out, kinda like an inspection broker.

You had a good construction carrier, now inspection, now get the marketing part right and bang, away you go.

Good luck Mike, your issue is one in which every one of us fears the most, that being an on the job injury that forces us out of doing what we do everyday. You could also look into getting an insurance adjusters license for home insurance. There's lots of independent companies that work for all the take out companies and Citizens doing their claims work. You already know more than 75% of the adjusters right now.

You might want to move to a different state to find work. Florida's true unemployment rate is 16%. North or South Dakota have a lot oil field work. Even McDonald's jobs pay good.

Family keeps me here. I believe my Daughter to be in the best school there is The Wife loves the neighborhood. I choose to sacrifice for their well being. I would have likely headed to North Dakota a long time ago if I were not a family man.
