Worked for a power supply manufacturer, we built units for companies like Lockheed Martin, Grumman, etc. Started as a floater and ended up in lower management. Did chassis wiring, mechanical assembly, prototype work.

I loved the work, but I topped out. There was no room for advancement beyond where I was, been at that level for close to 12 years.

When I reached the management level and started to deal with the front office, aka "Rug People" I had enough. Unfortunately in my field, if I left, it was right back to the bottom to start with another company. Couldnt take that kind of a pay cut, I was looking at a 65% - 75% reduction in pay to start over.

I started my own business 15 years ago that I worked part time. My retired father ran it full time for me. I finally left my job 3 years ago and now full time working my own thing and Dad is retired once again.

That's what my Dad did up until the last year of his life (he was 80 when he died). He could have lived off Social Security, but he wanted to keep working. So whatever he made at the shop basically went back into the shop. Five Star Trophies, it was.

@ Pitch Black SS: The site looks great to me; I don't have need of your services but when I do I'll contact you; I would assume you wouldn't hold it against me being in Texas.

@ Five0two Sorry to hear that your father passed; seems he enjoyed doing since it wasn't about the money. Kudos!
