Well, here I am in the same job I've had for... going on 11 years.
For those of you who don't know: I'm the Technology & Marketing Coordinator for the local library.
It's not the worst, but it has its days.
Doesn't pay the greatest either, but I'm not hurting.
There are perks though, I'm close to home (6 blocks), the benefits are nice, and I have tons of job security.
But we've had a change of leadership about a year ago, and the new director is making this a place I'm starting to hate.
Kinda sad, I used to love it here.
I went into the computer field because it interested me, but I'm beginning to severely dislike this line of work.
As most of you know, I owned and operated this website as a sole proprietorship for 4 years.
Lemme tell ya, I had tons of fun doing this website, and from many aspects!
I enjoyed it so much that I've considered launching my own automotive media/marketing company on a full-time basis (it exists already, but not much going on with it anymore).
So here's my dilemma:
My wife and I are looking to move into a bigger house, so we have started to look at houses.
In a couple years we'll want to start having kids.
For those reasons, I absolutely need secure employment (as is the case with pretty much everyone).
Do I stay in this bum of a job and keep the security of it?
Or do I go out on my own to pursue my passion of cars and social marketing?
You all have been great supporters of me, so that's why I feel like I can spill my guts here!
