Thread: Any good job ideas for quads?

    Any good job ideas for quads?

    I am a 52-year-old former oil and gas executive who happens to also be C-5,C-4 incomplete 6 years post. Although I have been able to both support my family and handle the huge increase in my health care expense, I'll soon be overcome by these increasing expenses. (Sound familiar?)
    I need to increase my annual income by $25,000--$30,000. Realistically, I also need to work from home for the most part. I can make meetings or other work assignments outside home during the week. (BTW, I am fluent in French and Spanish.)
    Any encouraging advice?

    Would love to give you some advice Sir but don't know how. The increase you are looking to make is tripple of my annual earnings. Maybe a less costly lifestyle? Good luck.
    From the time you were born till you ride in a hearse, there is nothing so bad that it couldn't be worse!

    All fringe benifits must be authorized by Helen Waite, if you want your SCI fixed go to Helen Waite!

    Why be politically correct when you can be right!

    I wish I could say over the phone interpreter, but I could only wish to have the earnings you are expecting. If you want info on this (you might get better pay cause of the 3 languages) PM me.
    Thoughts become things, choose the good ones!

    Dude! Former oil exec., 52 years old, and you speak three languages and you don't know what you could do?

    Seems to me that getting back into the oil and gas business in any way possible is the only way you're going to make that kind of money.

    1) cut some costs. You will find here how others are managing with costs care. Their experience may be very valuable.
    2) do what you like most with pleasure and 60h/week(minimum). Maybe a new business. These times might me good for a start.

    Or move to another country(France, Spain) where health system is not soo business orientated. IMO being disabled is almost equal with being poor (especially on hi quadriplegics).
