I'm a geek. Officially a Mobility Consultant. I help enterprises deploy and manage all kinds of smart devices. 

I get some flexibility to get out and hit the course during the week which is great.

I'm one of those home office web developers.  Currently neck deep in a mobile app project for a nonprofit.  Also learning some new web app framework or another at any given time.

Originally envisioned plenty of time to get out to the courses when I made the transition from hobbyist to full-timer.  Most definitely not, as I tend to get head-down absorbed in work all waking and some should be sleeping hours even when I -do- have available time to step away.  I like my work too much.

Quick update because the plans have changed a little. It's been a busy start to the year with acquiring more properties, networking, traveling and doing a lot of due diligence. Through meeting some great people things have kind of evolved from a "buy and hold" strategy to now I've been offered an opportunity to join an investment banking firm. My focus will be on the syndicated/institutional real estate side of the business. So I've just started working on getting the securities licenses that are required.

Update to the update:

Passed my Series 22 and now studying for the 63. Long term I'll also be looking to get my real estate salesperson license and Series 7. For the past few months I've been focusing more on the marketing side of things. I've helped oversee the rebuilt/redesign of the firm's site (might have to do another one) and moving on to building our online marketing platform from scratch. Lead generation campaigns utilizing social media, landing pages, calls to action, email marketing, etc. If anyone has experience doing this I'd love the opportunity to pick your brain. 

I've created a lot of content but haven't been able to share it because the regulatory body that reviews our communications hasn't approved the new website yet. So with all that on hold I'm using the time to get my licenses. 

My wife is also part of the operation, she got her licenses just before summer and has been learning the ropes on the sales/advisor side and doing well. Basically what we do is help real estate investors who are tired of being landlords move them into hands-off real estate investments. A lot of our clients are located in California, bought real estate in the 80's-90's, want to sell but don't want to pay the capital gains. We "hold their hand" through the process, help them defer the taxes and allow them to "graduate" to large-scale, institutional grade real estate. The cool thing is my wife and I are investors ourselves and it's been a lot of fun to work with the clients and the sponsors (companies that offer/manage these real estate projects).

@mvmac Impressive!  I was a real estate broker for nearly thirty years. I used to have my own company, managed a few others and was president of a local community real estate board.  I had a few good years, and a lot of not so good years. At one time, was in the top 25 in California (in a particular franchise company), but you probably know more than I ever did at least from the investment side. I don't know what a series 7 or series 22 is, but I have been out of it for many years now having sold my last property in 1997. Oh, also did a stint in mortgage banking.

I'm an orthopedic PA who sees just about any musculoskeletal issue that walks, crawl, or rolls into our office. I love setting fractures, reducing dislocations, and doing surgery. Mostly, I like helping people get back to life and doing what they want to do after injuries.  

I'm working so that I can one day reach the pinnacle of our earthly lives in being a starter for a golf course wherein I fuss at young teenagers waiting to tee off while having the benefit of playing golf for free

I work as a marketing consultant for the most part but also own Nualgi, which is a water treatment solution that naturally removes algae. Started small with aquariums before moving into ponds and lakes and eventually....the OCEAN!

Hello everyone! I've migrated over from freegolfinfo.com. I don't often post at any the three or four forums that I joined a decade or so ago. Generally I just follow interesting discussions but rarely post. I retired July 1st this year after a forty two year career as a Steamfitter/Pipefitter/Welder. Five years ago I played to a 10.3 index but only played 4 or 5 times a year for the past 4 seasons! Late this fall I played every three or four days for three weeks and there were positive signs that I might play in the mid-eighties more often. Winter put a stop to the season last Friday so I'll find out next Spring!

Time to update this. I switched jobs in August. I am now working for FirstEnergy in Akron, Ohio as a Transmission Line Engineer. I mostly work on design and conflict issues with 69 kV lines or above. This job requires me to know more on the structural side of engineering since we deal more on designing transmission facilities from substations to substations.

    • I stand corrected. I will however, stand by the fact that he's not nearly as far gone as someone like Fowler. This year was clearly a drop on the stats front, but he still finished respectably on the money list. I'm not ready to assign him to the trash heap yet. Completely OT, but I'm curious how Rory's recent fall in the rankings compares with others who've fallen hard from the top  - not because of physical injury (I'm making an assumption that injury is not Rory's issue). People like Jordan (who's rebounded) and Duval. Do they collapse in one area (e.g. putting) or many areas? Is there any pattern? My guess is that there isn't a pattern, and that it's such a hard game that any golf "skill" that degrades can cause a precipitous drop in results.
    • @kmp which rules would you change, and how?  Though no rules should allow cutting down the lone tree at Chambers Bay...
    • Man, get well soon (seriously). This is just chit-chat about golf, or, to be precise, a level of golf most of we mere mortals can only watch in awe before heading out and skinning one over the green. The best of luck with your recovery. And I'm sorry for being snippy.
    • Yeah sorry your right but my point was Jack didn’t make the course the reason he didn’t win, my memory is abit off after a month in a coma. I’m trying to setup a new laptop and it’s not happening, I’ve had to admit defeat and get some help. My bad…
