Hey Guys!

15 posts in this topic

so life has taken a surprise turn, and i'm no longer in the car business (aren't you surprised that it's impossible to make a living in the car business anymore!?!? LOL)

how is everyone on here? i've wondered from time to time how everyone is doing...

Always great to see some estrogen on the board! Sorry to hear about your career taking an abrupt turn.

i know how michigan sucks (jobwise). the news from there is depressing, although on the bright side you could probably pick up a house dirt cheap (just not pay for it with the high rate of unemployment). I am now working in a hospital in the food and nutrition department. not a job i love, but good paying, and pays the mortgage. gotta do what ya gotta do, right?

i absolutely miss the car business. selling was great, being a business manager was excellent. my dealership closed, and if i was honest with myself, i'd have paid less attention to how great NEXT month was going to be, and more attention to how much it was draining my savings daily. right now my area is faced with the closure of lots of dealerships by 2010, the local dealer got two letters, one for his PBGmc store, and one for his Chevy store. The irony is that he received his closure letters, then 3 days later received his congratulatory letter for receiving Triple Crown for the 11th year. (In canada Triple crown is the dealership award for excellence.) too sad. i still check out C&G from time to time, to keep up on the latest GM news, I still tune into the news whenever there's GM news, but its not the same. :(

Well stace I think you're a great lady and I wish you the best in the future. Who knows, maybe the car business will rise again and you'll find yourself back in there, doing what you love.

Yeah the State of Michigan as a whole needs to win the lotto!

Hopefully things get better for you guys. I just feel bad for the young generation that's just getting out of college. They have it the worst right now. debt + No jobs = ?????? (I guess we will find out soon)

Hopefully in 5 years I can retire and not give a damn! So far Investing in 85% bonds has been a smart idea. As they are averaging +4.5% a year right now.

i don't know Dave. I'm of two minds, the colleges and Universities around here are swamped with students since so many people are out of work. I can't go too far, since I'm paying a mortgage, and still have one daughter in high school. Rethinking my career path would be great, but I'm not too inclined to spend a lot of time on education, I'm more of a just earn it! type of chick. LOL I really lucked into this job, I don't love it, but am ridiculously overpaid. I've been keeping an eye in the hospital to see what sort of postings happen, and what is required to get them. So far, I'm just taking a medical terminology course online, and maybe after that a medical admin course.

Sounds like a good way to go for now.
