I have a new job. It’s in retail. I love it.

WMFor now, I’ve abandoned the idea of returning to my last career field, Employee Benefits Consulting, or a Life & Health Insurance Broker. I’ve enjoyed the last eight years off, but it’s time to go back to work.
I love my boat, the boating hobby, boating people, being on the water and helping others with the same things. I love learning about boating and the equipment.  I have all my life. If you don’t believe me, ask my parents at what young age I started talking about joining the US Coast Guard.
I think that my with my recent USCG Captain’s License, I have proven that I have the knowledge and experience to boat safely without generally drowning anybody.
So, I got a job at West Marine.  Yes, it’s what everybody says is low wage.  Many people think retail is for people who can’t get a “real job”. It’s tiring to be on my feet all day, but it’s good exercise. I’ll work evenings and weekends.
But I help people with products for their boat and I love it.


  1. There is a lot to be said for having a job doing something you enjoy. Regardless of what others may say, I think it’s great. More power to ya!
