Customer service reference and representative support for a big utilities company
I'm also trained as a sound engineer, I do PC repair, and I play bass in a local metal band .
You could also add superdad, taxi driver, motorcycle operator, poolboy, and general contractor... but that would be way too much.

Full time recording, mixing and sometimes mastering engineer for the last 3 busy years (and a little less full time for a longer time). I'm loving it, few weeks ago I finished the 150th album I was involved in one way or another, I would say that's quite a lot as I started doing it seriously around 2010. In the last few years I've met hundreds of lovely people and just a few less lovely, met my wife, moved to a capital city and adopted two cats

That would depend on the flavour of the sauce - can you elaborate?

Many people think it's dull, but finance/accounting will always be in demand. I've done very well with it, and it gives me the resources to do the other stuff I love to do.

Needless to say, if you're great with customer service you'll always be in more demand. That's the same in any field of work.

No shame in those! I personally believe everyone should work retail or fast food once in their life. The amount of bull**** you have to deal with is a great way to prepare for future jobs (and how you end up treating retail/ FF workers in the future).

I make music for my own projects at a slow pace. The modern music streaming and dowload stores are a blessing for an indie artist, although it's hard to get the numbers go up but a back catalogue from 20+ years helps once you find your audiences. The downside of not having to do anything ever is after a while you don't want to do anything ever. Time just flies by on Facebook and Youtube. It's a constant existentialism crisis with time passing by too fast doing nothing meaningful. But it is a dream come true.

Years ago I was often friggin depressed for long periods of time at day job feeling like I was wasting my life changing it for money in a crappy factory job (sound familiar anyone?), and I must admit life is now a lot easier with less stress and depression, but the "constant lucky state of mind" everyone is searching for is just not attainable. Most of the time it's mehhh and sometimes uarghhh, no matter what the life situation a person has. Creativity is born from suffering. So let's enjoy the present moment! <3

Higher Education

-I really do it for the benefits, and I`m well paid with insanely good full benefit package. The real cash starts when I get off work. I`ll do anything to be off government insurance, I`m just lucky I found a great place to have that. And you don`t work all year long. Maybe 10 1/2 months at most.

Well, not getting rich by any means, but it is now luckily slightly better than what I got from the factory job 6 years ago and I'm trying to scale it up slowly. It suits the current situation in life very well, as I'm occasionally looking after my grandmom, taking her once a week to a bigger grocery store and doctor almost monthly for a bit of this and that (some issues only in the past couple of years and she's turning 90 in September).

If the economics run ok, there needs to be some interest or a goal to look forward to with the job/hobby/passion, otherwise it's plain slacking week in week out, and constant kicking back leads only to anxiety and misery. I wish I had the same kind of burn as I had 20 years ago and I'd be hammering new tunes daily The need for showing others what you can do can be a really powerful tool

what's really impressive to me is that while most people on GS past a certain age (40+) aren't as comfortable with the technological/social media avenues out here becoming essential to music promotion, you seem to be excited about it. (a lot of members here just outright hate it.) what advice would you give people here in this thread in regards to this?
