That's awesome. I worked the majority of my life in restaurants as a manager and corporate trainer. Food is life.

I've done a lot of things all over the spectrum but as of more recently I am a field underwriter for life insurance and am in the process of expanding to build an insurance agency.

That's awesome hope everything's goes well with building your own agency's, I was actually looking into insurance sales, but you gotta have experience in sales. I've only worked in factory's food and a little bit of construction

Ever have any questions feel free to PM me on discord or anything. If you're in the states I can help out a lot too. I never did sales before this and I'm highly against any shady tactics, pressuring people, cold calling, etc. I genuinely talk people down sometimes lol. 

I miss the food from the restaurant life so much though hahah.

Right now, I'm a student, but my study path is eventually going to lead me into becoming a Social Worker, so that's that. I major in Sociology but research isn't for me : I'm really looking into getting involved with people directly.

I work with natural gas lines, with both installing new pipelines in the ground mostly residential and few industrial lines. I do everything from putting the pipe in the ground to installing the gas meter on the side of the house and going in and lighting appliances. It definitely an interesting lines of work being as I never have a set schedule since if something is hit we have to respond cant wait until the next day when you get natural gas blowing haha. Done everything from being a fitter fusing together plastic pipe in the ground, to a operator using mini excavators to dig up old lines, to plumber actually replumbing steel pipe out of people's houses to connect to our lines.

Maybe its just cause I've been in the gas industry for like 6 years now but I have never found it scary lol. Honestly electricity scares me more than natural gas. Like I'd rather fight a broken gas line with 60psi, then change a 120v outlet Xd.

Oh boy, I started at a butchers shop, then as a 800 ton press operator in a factory, then went to school for HVAC (heating and cooling), did that for 5 years and now I’m getting my CDL (commercial drivers license) to haul steel :). In between all that, small social media company and another business startup that fell through because I was 19 and slightly overconfident 😭

Well that’s one of the best ways to gain experience because trust me I have pretty big goals in life and all of these things are stepping stones

Before the Pandemic though, I was working as a Pharmacy Clerk and Assistant to a Pharmacist (most boring position imo). Then worked at a ton of retail positions and have like 8+ years of Customer service (Customers aren't always 100% right) and hopefully when this lockdown is over, I could just go back to working while I'm in school.

I'm sure I've mentioned this on my introduction post, but going to mention it anyways. I'm a full time student at a college for Biotechnology, but I will be attending university after I finish college for Wildlife Biology and Conservation. When the lockdown is completely over, I'm going to be volunteering at a local animal shelter, may able to work at the Toronto Zoo to gain experience as well. In the future, I'm going to save up some money to open an animal shelter for rescued animals. In hopes that they'll be able to live a much safer and comfortable life. 

That's pretty much it. :D
