My User Name may confuse, but I’m actually male, married, and over 50 years old. And Canadian, if that matters to anyone anywhere.
I work in sales; I own a business in which I am currently the only employee– although I have had someone working for me in the past. I learned some rudimentary accounting skills in an elective optional course in High School, mostly just to get enough credits to graduate, and those skills have easily become the most useful in my day-to-day career.
I also took “Drafting” classes in High School; the preparation of architectural drawings. Even though I didn’t score very high gradewise, I discovered an interest in architecture and in drawing things.
So while High School didn’t completely fail me, it didn’t exactly set me on a path to knowing what to do with my life, and its eventual success, either.
