Are you happy in your current career? *VENT*

I am not! My boss sucks, my days are long, I miss my kids. I feel like I am wasting away here while my kids are raised by the sitter. As great as she may be, she's not me. Anyone else feel the same?

  • so, the solution is to find a way to make money without a sucky boss and work less hours, but make the same amount of money. Id say find a work at home job or research careers that have what you need. I know how you feel. Thats why im in nursing school. Im going to be a part time nurse. then I can work 3 days and have 4 off for family time while still being able to pay the bills and live in modest comfort.

  • That will also be a rewarding career! Good for you! I actually have started my own home business, I am in the beginning stages and trying to pay off some debt, so I'm working full time still also. But this new business venture is SO going to pay off! I'm so excited! Feel free to IM me if anyone wants some more info! ;-)

  • it's ok, if i had a better boss that wasn't so negative. It's kinda funny in how he thinks.

  • So, how is your job search going?

    Answer by rkoloms at 4:24 PM on Apr. 14, 2011

  • No job search...I make way too much here for what I do to quit. I just miss my kids and want my business to take off super fast so I can stay home with them. I'm working on it!!!

  • Very Happy. I've worked as a Juice Plus Rep. for the last year and a half. I'm doing well with my business and don't think I can ever go back to a 9 to 5.
