i like what i do and the fact i can come and go as i please is nice. i just will not be tied down to the job anymore.

i was going to get licensed and do some work in the financial industry but that is to much like work and will require more time spent on the job then i care to do.

i much rather reap the rewards of making it this far and do all the things we want before it's to late.
A year in advance?? Or have you lost your calendar? Or am I not fully awake yet?

I agree that those three things are gender-neutral, but what is not gender-neutral in the aggregate is the amount of time those things are held onto. Men tend to get over it (with some exceptions, of course), but women less so.

yep , i gave them 11 months to replace me on the front lines. it is a very technical position and is basically learned on the job even with a degree. it is a very specialized niche. it can take months just to find someone who can pass a drug test ,a background check and have a decent credit report. they have to interface with customers so no heavy accents.

then we can get to their job skills.

in ny that is one tall order.

i already cut back to part time.
