then add in HIIT cardio (google it)

We actually have a need for both styles of jobs......Boeing is hiring in their accounting dpt here (Boeing just recently moved here).....SPAWAR is always looking for financial people (100k yr+ jobs with SPAWAR).


Quite a lot of Pharm Companies are stationed here because South Carolina is one of the few states with testing laws where no one is to blame if you die from testing.....or something along those lines lol

Depends on the finance job. She HATES the thought of being an accountant. She regularly moves hundreds of millions of dollars a day, so leaving the (apparent) high money, high stress environment is not in the cards. I tried talking her into applying for google's financial dept when I was out there for final interviews, no dice.

Oh yeah, Google is here too lol, forgot that......Monks Corner, SC I think its only a server farm....nothing major though.....


And less stress sounds good to me......but there are people that need it to feel they are doing something important etc.....I hate stress.....my job is super relaxed and the pay is great for no college education. I stay on top of the ticket que (end user tech support for Fujitsu USA) and smooth sailing lol

That's awesome....she kinda sounds like an "old soul".......don't hear about younger people still working with the same company for 10 years....or more. Older generations just stuck with the job and did it. Younger people seem to job hop until they find the right fit/compensation.

stars kind of aligned for her, as it were. put herself through school, knew exactly what she wanted to d as a career. took a job as a floor trader for 35k a year in nyc, living like shit and eating ramen. then landed her dream job and has been there ever since, and it paid off BIG time.

my story is the lazy version of hers.....lol and its just now paying off at the age of 29.....and I am only making 40k/yr.......but here where I live, that's quite nice money.....even more so with no college education....if I were educated.....working on computers here maybe double that 40k tops.

If you ever want to visit here I could easily show you around the nice areas.


I am sure there are jobs open anywhere around the world for both yours/wife's skill set.
Very nice to have choices at the end of the day.
