Alright everybody, I need some help!
A little over a year ago, I lost my job. It was a job I hated, but it was a job that paid me the money that I needed to live the lifestyle that I enjoyed - so I put up with it.
I sold homes for a large builder in Maryland and made good money doing it, until the Real Estate market plummeted across the country and my division laid off 123 out of 165 employees. My wife and I decided to move to South Carolina and we love it here, however I am just working part time at Best Buy and barely paying the bills and I really need to get a good full time job so I can start living life again.
My question is: I need some ideas for what I could do. I am really looking for a career change. I have burnt myself out with real estate - it's just far too stressful and my blood pressure is high enough on it's own!
I am very good at sales, been doing it for quite a while now. However, I'm not married to the idea that I have to do something in sales. My passions in life and boating, off-shore fishing, motorcycling, hunting, tropical vacation destinations, jimmy buffett, music, and performance cars/trucks. Of course, I would love to just be a charter boat capt. or a musician but another passions of mine is money (so I can mod out my truck
My brother suggested the the idea of hotel management, and I liked the idea because of the travel benefits and that is a pretty good paying job. I found a director of sales and marketing job open at the marriott downtown Charleston and I applied, but they already filled the position.
I'm not saying I'm lazy, I take a lot of pride in my job and work very hard to do my job to the best of my ability! I just want to do something that makes me happy.
Any Ideas, I just don't know?
