I was at a university, got tenure and promotion. My entire life, it seemed, had been focused on that. Once I reached those goals, I realized it wasn't all that I thought it would be and left. I did work for myself for about 15 years, as a graphic and web designer. Life happened, as it always does, and I decided to re-enter the workforce. I am currently working as an administrative assistant and love the job. It includes bookkeeping and payroll. I really love these aspects of the job. I have been doing a ton of training (which I fortunately have the time and management support to do) on both administrative type things as well as accounting/bookkeeping type things. I think it was just today that a bulb went off ~ I can do these things once I retire from this full time job. I'm not in a hurry, but I do want to start getting ready for that.
@tamalita this is such a great perspective. So glad to have you contribute here in QB Community as you prepare for wherever life takes you! Do you have any thoughts on direction post-FT employment? Back to teaching? Graphic design? Something totally new?
