My road in life took a while to figure out.
Worked part time, 36 hours a week and went to school full time. Spent a lot of money and lived pay check to pay check.
Met my wife and got me financial stable. Got a full time job.
My full time job was a entry level job. Had to work hard to prove myself and log hours.
Reach my goal of getting my CDL Drivers License. Able to move to a top paying job with the company.
Moved to management. Just like starting all over.
Work hard to learn everything. Move up to different position, but got bored.
New job, the position I have today. New leaning experience. Started all over again. Hard work.
Love what I'm doing.
Keep following my journey

The Noise I Shed

From Peers:

"I was a Union employee for almost 30 years. Nine years with the ILWU and 20 with the Teamsters. When I decided to make the change to management, friends made comments such as no job security and no money."
