Well this year has been a blast with being super busy.
Gardening, raising chickens, and learning a new profession while working an average of 50 hours a week plus the usual travel.
Not complaining about work or anything, I’ve been doing it a while. But with money in need and offers being made, I know it is close to time for me to leave and go into a more lucrative profession.
You can complain all you want about working hard to make others rich – but I bet ya still cash that paycheck :p
I’ve been fortunate enough to work with family all these years and one day we will all be moving on to bigger things.
However, for me, as I have always enjoyed teaching and learning fun,easy,exact ways to fix up my household and others(cheap of I can get away with it!), I’ve found a profession that seems to be hitting quite well in my state that I had considered a few years ago – home inspection.
I studied, joined a group, read books, studied every single night after work into the A.M.s and saved up for a very expensive test.
Let me tell ya, it was grueling and not very fun but in the end afterwards I looked at that computer screen in the silent testing area and lo and behold
I passed! :p
Now along with continuing making connections with other professionals and real estate agents that need somebody then and there, I have to get a few insurances lined up to get my official license.
It’s kinda a few hoops to jump through but that’s how state regulated things are. Accept or just don’t do it.
This isnt the end of the Cody Homesteader identity or ideals – this only improves on my knowledge to share with yal!
Part of homesteading is saving money where you can to use it towards other, more important things.
And that, along with gardening, chickens, diy, is what I will continue to provide.
Have an awesome day.
