    My mom and I own our own catering/event company. I've done it all...wedding planning, office work, janitorial work, etc. When you own your own business if it has to get done, you are usually the one who does it.

    I'm mainly in the office now, hence my BDW obsession. I do still cook and "rent myself" out to do in home cooking classes, mixology and personal chef work.

    Most of my clients are corporate, though I do have the contract with 4 private airports to do all personal aviation catering. I also work with clients with special dietary needs, especially if it is a new diagnosis. I show or prepare meals for diabetic, bariatric, gluten-free, etc. patients.

    I graduated college with BAs in French and Poli Sci thinking I would be a jet-setting international philantropic grand poo-bah activist type person. I worked really hard on the 2000 and 2004 campaigns and got really burned out when my side lost. Both of my parents were chefs so I just kinda ran out of money and needed somethng to do. Here I am 3 years later with no formal training!

      I'm an Esthetician (a.k.a. Skin Care Specialist). I have two jobs.. I work in a Spa where I do facials, makeup, and waxing. My other job is at a hair salon where I do facials but I also do hair.

          but i just gotta say to CThawaii14 that oh do i love metal fabrication. its like the best stress reliever ever. you cant be stressed out when you have a big ol torch in your hand cutting and welding steel. i feel better just thinkin about it haha

          I love it too. It can be hard at times but its nice to work on metal stuff and just get away from everyday life. Its kind of like I am just playing and building stuff so I have a lot of fun doind it.

          Congrats on the new job. I hope it works out for you.

            I am a Wellness Center Manager in Corporate Fitness. Basically I work with Anthem (yes, the insurance) employees here in their office buildings. We have fitness facilities in house for them and they come to work out on their lunch breaks, before work, after work, whenever! I teach group fitness classes, personal train, exercise prescriptions, fitness assessments, etc...great job!
