I'm a full time student working on my BA with the intentions of getting a Masters in Business Administration and Architecture. Yes I know I have a ton of school left! Currently I'm interning at architectural firm that specializes in custom homes and small commercial buildings.

In the free time I don't have I'm working on starting my own building company specializing in pole barns, sheds, and garages. I've been doing it for cash now for a few summers and have been making a ton of money doing it - more then I ever dreamed I would. The demand has grown so much that I'm getting a business license and I'm going to have to hire a few friends work for me part time to keep up.

Doing all of that and yet I'm still broke - damn school bills! It will be all worth it when I get out of school with little to no debt though.

I've worked at CooperStandard Automotive for 18 years now running a extrusion line that makes weatherstrip for GM, Ford, and Chrysler, but mostly GM. There'* a good chance we will get some of that new Camaro job (fingers crossed)....

That mean you can get a "supplier discount" or whatever they call it?

I'm in sales for a manufacturing company. We do mostly sheet metal work, a lot of it for the furniture industry like Herman Miller, Steelcase, Knoll, etc. My main job is cost estimating-figuring out how much parts will cost to build and how much to charge.

I'm currently in debt up to my eyeballs learning how to keep an airplane from crashing into the ground... and so far it'* working. Hopefully this will lead to a future occupation of flight instructor and subsequent job as a commercial pilot.
