Anyone who has read my “About Page” knows that I was previously a commercial and corporate banker and a strategic management consultant. I retired from consulting work at 38 and currently help manage a small family owned real-estate business on behalf of all my siblings. I probably worked more hours in my 15 years of professional employment than most folks work in 30 years or even their entire career. But I had a lot of fun and I am thrilled to be in “partial retirement” at this stage of my life, and would rather be enjoying myself now and having to go back to work at 60 than the other way around… after all, doesn’t it always amuse you when you see a really nice car like a Porsche or Ferrari and the guy or lady behind the wheel is like 70 and on 6 different pills with breakfast? I think all folks should have a nice car from 20-30 and drive a Minica in their later stages…. but that is just me. At any rate, the announcement of the Kalamansi Marmalade winners brought up an interesting set of questions… WHAT DO MARKETMANILA READERS DO FOR A LIVING? I don’t mean to pry, but if you are willing to share your occupation, vocation, etc., I think it would be really neat to read about it… I can tell you that 60+% of you live abroad, and that on a daily basis, I have readers logging in from at least 75! countries around the world. I can tell you that you come from an amazing spread of ages (surprisingly so, actually) and you can see the data on the poll at right at the moment with 25-45 year olds making up a majority of readers. I can tell you many of you are pork lovers, freaked out by frogs and a few are vegetarians. I am hoping most of you agree with my owning a fish pan, and if you don’t, don’t even try to tell me off about it… At any rate, I think we would all appreciate it if you could share what it is you do or what your profession is… many thanks in advance!!!
