And yesterday I was told I'm being laid off for budget reasons. Never mind that I'm still bringing in money this year, and am the only one who knows how to fulfill the grant requirements of the money we already got, and I fund myself....:)sphss

That said, I knew it was coming for political reasons, being as I'm white and all, but still to actually hear it...:(:(

I've had this job longer than any other in my life, 3.5 years yesterday. I was in the Navy for 25 years, but they transferred me every three years, so this is the longest I've ever held a position, and done the same work. I'm interviewing with a State Senator's office tomorrow, and started doing contract grant writing work last night. Overall, this could work out to be a raise, but the uncertainty is not all that:mad:

Lol

So the same night I found out I was getting laid off, I got a contract to write another grant. Picked up almost a million for another city. Too bad I can't get a percentage deal, but that will come on the next one. Oh, and I'm opening a brokerage in LA. That should be interesting, partnering with the kiddo again.

Mandeleon, what line of work are you in? There are amazing amounts of money to be found; money for short and long haul truckers, manufacturers, designers, architects, but they don't know how to access it. Teach me your business, there might be money in it for you.

Now, there are restrictions. There are no grants for medical marijuana cultivation or distribution (yet), nor for porn work. I think that last has its own benefits:D

Good to hear you've got a plan...I was thinking that waiting for Piranha II to start filming wasn't going to cut it!

I employ 22 very handy guys to rehab bank foreclosures for Freddie Mac, FNMA, Wells Fargo, BAC, etc. I think we are going to start doing window installs for Home Depot as well. Not sure there's any grant money out there for a guy like me... LOL

There's tons of obamabucks for weatherization, especially for low income folks.

Do you think she and my wife would get along? My smoking hot assistant sees my wife as a role model - any perverted old guy aspirations disappear when that happens.

On the up side, I did a quarter mil in business today. The old guys lose, the new guys win. I didn't even set a price, just kind of let them get a taste, like a pusher and his junkies:) I might pick up a grand, which would be over 500 an hour.....

Wives and girlfriends don't normally get along. Although I have seen it. But smoking HOT assistants and wives are definately a great combo. I tip my hat to you sir Hefner.;)

I have considered opening one. Theses guys are making a fucking killing. Its just the legal crap you have to deal with and finding a city and/or county that's not trying trying to shut you down. The biggest expense is the start up cost. the attorney fees are pretty high, but its a must!

Anyways, sorry about your job loss. But who knows, it may be better for you in the long run. The skills you have will take you anywhere, and that "anywhere" may be a better place than the present one.
