I work in Commercial/Industrial printing. There's a pretty good chance some of you have touched a brand or product I've printed or overseen. At one time I was printing labels for virtually every major fast food chain, petroleum products for Shell, all sorts of skincare products, pool chemicals, the list goes on. Also printed a lot of stuff for Taylor Corp. Different from Taylor Publishing.

Most popular for Taylor was Cardsdirect.com and simplypersonal.com

I'm a AutoCAD drafter for an HVAC/Plumbing company in Seattle. I'm 2nd in charge of the department and am responsible for quality control and training. We work on some pretty cool projects like large genetic science labs, Google, video game companies (Epic, Valve, Nintendo, etc...), and some really cool projects on the Microsoft campus like building 87 (one of their anechoic chambers in that building is the quietest place on the planet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cyqc_4ixV80), 343 studios, hardware prototype labs, and some other super secret stuff I can't talk about. We also do a lot of 40-60 story high-rises.

Actually, if he's high school, there's a good chance it has letters. Of course, then it's a question of Roman or Greek letters?

I'm in the same industry as Dustin. I'm a project manager for a plumbing company. Got started drafting for an HVAC engineering firm, moved into project engineering and now I estimate and manage work. I run medium to large scale projects all over LA and Orange County. I probably don't work on projects on as large as scale as Dustin but definitely have been involved in some high profile projects.

Seattle is insane right now with construction so it keeps me plenty busy. I'm currently working on a job that is 2 32 story towers connected at the 4th floor and has 8 parking garage levels below the building. That's one of 4 buildings larger than 50 total floors were working on right now. Its cool to know about large scale construction jobs before the general public ever sees them.

For decades, I've been a software developer -- Windows desktop/client based custom applications. Over the past few years, that has started transitioning to primarily IT/consulting work. As of January 1st, that will be my new full-time job at a new company. Mainly business-to-business stuff: networking, server management, backups, security, monitoring, etc.

Also, I co-own and manage rentals, but I consider those mostly to be retirement income, not currently taking any income from these except enough to cover taxes.

Also, I do social media and other online marketing and assistance for a musician in a band that was very popular during the 80s (and still tours today). Does not pay much, but gives a lot of fringe benefits.

@antipop My son was born premature and struggles with fine motor skills, especially his speech. He is 8 and it can be very difficult to understand. It's his only issue he has from the premature birth thankfully. We have him in speech therapy at the school.

Most people really don't know what they're doing when they shop online, and companies are more than happy to give you a quote with crap coverage based on the answers you put in. You pay the quote, forget a few things/get some dates wrong, and when they underwrite it suddenly you're paying way more than the quote.

Plus, for a one time broker fee, you have someone who shops 15+ companies if you're not satisfied with rates down the road. It's way easier, simpler, and you know everything up front.

It's kind of a blessing for parents to know that you went through something similar, so when a kid isn't progressing at the way they want them to, you can speak on personal experience about it.

Realistically where do you see yourself in 10 years? 20 years? 40 years? Reselling crap and sleeping till 10? No wife, no kids, no retirement income, no SS, living in a low dollar apartment still with your friends? I already said in this thread, doing that crap while you're young is cool. At some point though it's becomes a lot less cool.
