Well, the ax finally fell, and it was off with my head... 21 years straight in Tech/Communications - six-figure income down the tubes doing a job I HATED. I got an OK severance and with the stock I have, I should be OK at least through the year...
But it got me thinking... the BEST job I ever had (and truly LOVED) was in college - taking care of pools! I had 100 pools a week I took care of. With some "re-education" I've gotten here, my pool looks sparkling GREAT! I'm thinking about putting an add in the local paper to see if others are willing to pay me ~$100/so a month (plus chemicals) for some "Trouble Free" Pool Services.
Not really looking to do a "business" of a 100+ pools, as 10-20 pools would be great while I look for other things to do to make money - I'm really am going to need something to keep me from occupied and driving myself crazy (I'm type "A") during this "set-back".
Sound like a plan?
