I joined to get ideas to help me find a niche area to work in as I get closer to retirement age that will allow me the ability to travel and work remotely. I'm currently taking an IT course and a bookkeeping course through Coursera. I enjoy the IT course but I'm not sure that's an area I want to work in. Having people screaming at me that their computers won't work would be too stressful. I've worked in the medical field in various areas since I was 15. I just left the CNA field after a double hip replacement last year and I'm currently working as a Patient Access Rep at a hospital. When I took the job I didn't realize it would be basically a collections position and I don't like hounding people for money. I could downgrade a level and take a pay cut so I wouldn't have to do collections but with having to drive almost 3 hours (round trip) to get back and forth to work it would take a huge chunk of change out of my paycheck to downgrade. I live rurally so I have to travel to get a job. I'm hoping by the end of the year to get an apartment in town to save money, especially with the cost of gas as it's about what my rent payment would be. I love working with people, especially the older ones. I also have a side business helping the elderly in their homes. I'd hoped to make it a full-time job but just can't find enough clients.
