I was in Enterprise software for years, moved over to cybersecurity 8 years ago. I finally reached my financial goals and retired July 4th. Now I practice golf daily and play 2-3 times weekly.

I am a freelance AV tech. I spent 13 years with my previous company before being pushed out under the new management that eventually bankrupted the company within 2 years.

Sometimes being "Pushed Out" can be a good thing.

Oh no doubt. I think it was the best thing that could have happened. I went from being on salary and giving away an average of 10-15 hours a week In OT to getting paid for all the hours I work. Also no more stress of being in charge of people. All I worry about now is my performance. No more asking for time off. I work when I want and if I need to be off I just don’t work that day.

Glad it is working for you.  I'm similar to you.  As long as I make sure my clients are covered & can do what I please.  On Monday @ 8am I got a call that a group needed a fourth for an outing at a really nice course and I was able to juggle the calendar and had a great day golfing a course I would not normally play.

Network engineer in the telecom world.  Nowadays I lead a team of triage engineers but my career has been spent putting fires out versus doing network planning.

I am an Assistant Financial Center Manager at a large bank.  Can't visit much while at work other than from my phone!  Too busy making my client's financial lives better. 🙂
