Hello there! I live in Calgary, Alberta Canada and have done so all my life. That may seem weird to say, but we are a very transient city and so the folks here who are native Calgarians are super proud!
In September I was laid off from the oil industry. I had worked in that industry for over 35 years and have been laid off 5 times. This time I decided that I'm not going back. I know...it's like that person who doesn't like you...you just keep trying to get them to be your friend. I've finally decided the oil industry is "dead to me" and will never be my friend!
So, now what? Well...I looked around the net for something to do that actually was legit and profitable. I joined a VERY expensive online marketing group and decided that they just weren't for me. I just couldn't get passionate about what they were selling. However...I did learn a ton from them and for that I will be forever grateful.
I'm on a journey. I don't want to go back to working in an office. I do want to take off for a beach when it's -30 C in Canada and be able to work from there. I feel I will be able to do that with this company.
