Iím involved in the design and development - making them last and produce lire power and efficiency. Iím also pretty hands on.

I work remotely doing graphic design for a sports marketing company. It lets me travel full-time and take work with me. But I also have a business buying and selling real estate that I'm hoping to scale to the point where I can live off of it in the near future.

Same here! I choose to work remotely, so I can travel wherever and whenever I want. Next year I'm planning to go to Chile in South America. I am starting to do my research, I already have a guide/itinerary https://gowithguide.com/chile/puerto-varas/guides however for my accommodation I am still choosing if https://www.airbnb.com/ or https://www.booking.com/ anyway I still have 2 months. PS. If anyone has a suggestion, it will be much appreciated.

I was an outside electrical contractor for Whole Foods Market, 18 years. before that I was a commercial electrician, as well as around 15 years in various refineries. Recently the company was purchased by Jeff Bezos. There were a lot of change to operations right away and recently they narrowed the list of approved contractors. They never said a word to me about it, one of the store managers told me my name was missing from the list. I sent out a couple of well worded emails and to this day, nobody has returned emails or called me. So...I'm moving into my bus by the end of the year

I'm a tech geek. Also a Famous Playstation 3 Hacker who broke the console security and put Linux back on the PS3's after Sony removed them. Legally of course. You can see a lot of my work open sourced at psdevwiki.com (Linux was an advertised feature on the PS3 and I don't tolerate it when corporations take features away from good people after people pay for them). Sony lost in court over it and here we are today, building buses lol.

what do I do. LOL What will you pay me to do? I have a wide variety of skills but no career nor proper lable. when left to my own devices I take sheep fleeces and turn them into garments. Or I make other things with other materials. Not always garment related. If I had to hang a lable on me, it'd be "maker of things." I make things because I can't buy them, or because I hope someone might buy them off me. Not that this actually happens. I'm hoping to pick up casual work to supplement my disability stipend which is insufficient for even groceries, much less housing and whatnot.

My wife and I were full-time YouTubers 2018-this year. We formed a van & bus conversion company this year outside of Nashville and now do client builds in the shop we had built on our property. We still YouTube as well, but it's no longer our sole income or total priority.
