    I am a wife and mother and have those associated duties which come with them. An extra position I have is to homeschool my two children.

    In my spare time, sic, I renovate my house or my other properties and invest in more properties, and show my Schnauzer dogs.

    In a previous life, pre marriage, I worked as a meat packer, jillaroo, horsebreaker and dental nurse.

    DSo you have to have any special qualifications to homeschool kids? Like a teaching qualification etc? What happens if you don’t know the answers to the schoolwork your children are doing?

    my parents used to swear the easter bunny was real and continued to leave milk on the porch for him/her. its wasnt until i reached 21 that i had to tell them that enuf is enuf. i know the easter bunny is real but there is no way he could make to everyhouse in such a short time frame

    It’s easy to homeschool, I buy the answer books from the school. I did have to do a correspondence course myself to be able to homeschool, but it was easy too.[biggrin]

    To add to this interesting topic and I see other REA’s out there one being near me at Noosa plus some deep thinkers with life changing commitments.

    Been in real estate on the Sunshine coast since 1992 and owned my own office from then until 2002 when we sold the property management (the day after was the best day of my life) and the Building Society branch we had for five years also and shut the doors.

    I am now a Sales Manager of the RE office I work for and life is great.

    Have been in sales most of the past 25 yrs but started life as a plumber and done a zillion things in beteween. I made a coffee table once so I figured when we moved to QLD … hey I can built a house easy, so we did.

    Take care and don’t work your life away, its the only one you have.

    Qualified civil engineer (doesn’t mean I’m nice[angry2]) and worked for 15 years, 9 of that in government (dead end) and 6 in private with the last 6 months setting up and working for my own small company (real fun).

    That pays the bills.

    Like to think myself as a property invester as it’s more interesting to people and even more fun making money for nothing.

    Later………

    This is fascinating!!

    I felt that it would be a bit rude to read about all these interesting jobs & not contribute – so here goes:
    1st – Research forester. Measuring trees to see how long it would take before we could cut them down & plant more!

    2nd – Divemaster. Being paid to dive on THE Reef & guide people around. There were some other fringe benefits for a young backpacker!!!

    3rd – Self employed forester. Tree lopping etc. and the largest firewood delivery round in southern U.K. (approx. 1400-1700 cubic metres per annum)

    Current – Gas safety & emergency respose specialist on offshore drilling rigs.

    Thanks to everyone who has had a dip, it’s been very entertaining.

    Regards

    Hi All,

    I am IT Helpdesk Support consultant working for HP on outsourcing contracts. This type of job won’t break your back like laborer work at building sites I was doing during weekend for a while.

    My dream is to retire soon with a help of PropertyInvesting.com with some extra income stream from hotel/motel somewhere in the touristic places near some beach perhaps.

    Eugene
