Ken, I hear ya, believe me! I just mapped out my hours today over the last 4 months, and found I average 59.8 hours a week. I get paid for 40, no comp time, no overtime, no nothing. In fact, all I get in return from management is "You're not dedicated enough." I hate my job, and every day that I go to work, the knot in my stomach grows bigger.
The INSTANT I think of something to get myself out of this shithole most people call Motorola, I am OUT. I don't mind busting my butt, and working crazy hours - so long as I am the one who sees the fruit of my labor. Over the past 4 years of working for large corporations, I have learned that large corporations aren't for me. I can only imagine the personal satisfaction one gets from creating their own business.
It takes money to make money, and right now, I just don't have the cash to throw at a "risk"... but that's changing. Racing may get bumped a bit next year, in order to put some cash away, so that I can start something
. I just don't know what that something will be yet...
I'm open to ideas tho! Anybody got any thoughts on a self-owned business for a computer programmer/mechanic/motorcycle racer?
