I am a Finance Manager at a dealership that specializes in bad credit. My average credit score that I deal with is 442. The lowest I've dealt with is a 313....Crazy My job is not easy and I do put in some long hours, but I do enjoy it and enjoy the people I work with.

Adult HVAC instructor for the largest career and technical education district in the US. Certified, ICE, NATE, NCCER, and EPA 608 proctor, OSHA 10/30hr trainer. Small HVAC/R company owner.

Why? 4 day work week, 3 months of vacation, excellent benefits. HVAC is three trades in one, cannot be outsourced, high demand, shortage of skilled labor, recession resistant, DIY is dangerous, global warming and increased energy costs.

I am the lead service tech for the warranty department for one of the largest industrial and commercial HVAC companies in the south east.

My job is to ensure that all warranty items are handled for the first year that the building is turned over to the owner. Keeping them happy opens the door to a service contract after the warranty has expired.

It's a great job because I face a new challenge every day. I also get to meet people from all walks of life. It is very satisfying to know that when they are scared to death that the entire building may go down, I'm the one that they depend on to ensure that everything will be handled.

I design coins; more specifically challenge coins/military coins and recently we've been doing more coins for various companies as well as private parties. I'm only a peon, even though I'm the only art guy for us on the east coast. (we're based in the west coast)

Why? I've got art genes. Mom is in the art field as an interior designer and her mom sculpts/paints/draws/you name it, so it comes naturally. I may not be the best, but I'm far from the worst.
