It's a 9week Electronics Class being held by the County I live in, It's basic Electronics and Electricity class. Series and Parallel circuits, Components and digram reading and soldering. Thanks you opened my eyes. So your thinking being a lock smith is the way to go, Huh. I'll really think about that.

I'm doing more than thinking.  I'll be relocating soon, and the place I'm going to has no appliance guy.  It also has no locksmiths.  Small, mostly rural area.  Thing is, aside from agriculture, the major employer is a state & federal prison.  Were I a good locksmith, I could make out, no?

Small, mostly rural areas are good places to raise families, to put down roots, and to serve the community.

I might just get my license, and see what happens.

Maybe I'll just be the local fixit shop.  Maybe I'll do only appliances.  Maybe I'll end up being the 300K/year millionaire on-call locksmith for the feds.  Who knows?

Maybe I'll get hit by a bus tomorrow.

Grab life while you can. O0

If you got experience with the security company, the locksmith license (for credibility) and a bit of website programming, you could sell do-it-yourself security systems.

Set the alarms & cameras, write up a web site, then your customers could monitor their own car alarms/homes/businesses/nanny cams/etc.

You could be fat!

LOL!

On the other hand, you can just get a new doorknob at home depot, and can get keys made at any liquor store.

If you looked back at all 30+ of the different jobs I've had, you'd see I'm not good material for a career guidance counselor.

The first thing you should ask your financial adviser is "What are your assets & investments?"

If somebody asked me "What do you do for a living?"  it'd be as bad as some hottie asking me what car I drive!

Financial advisers... :P
Do they ever advise you not to spend your money on a financial adviser, lol...

It's not always about how much you make, but how much you spend. ;)

Evel Knievel said of his career that he had "earned $60 million, and spent $62 million".
