Audi Mechanic?

24 11 2008

So it’s definitely something that’s been at the back of my head for quite some time.  Ever since I’ve been able to drive I’ve been “modifying” my car.  While the first few, or not so few, weren’t things I’d ever do again I don’t regret any.  The fact is I love working on cars.  No, I love cars, period.  I spend a huge amount of my free time tinkering with the S or helping others work on theirs.  I just love getting greasy, learning how everything works and how to make it better.

So given this, why not make a career out of it?  I’ve always been a huge advocate of actually enjoying work.  I can’t get my mind around people who hate their jobs.  Yeah if it’s absolutely necessary, I understand, but I need to want to go to work every morning.

The thing is I enjoy what I’m doing now.  For those that don’t know, I run a few websites which specialize in home improvement contractor lead generation (check out my blog on the right).  So I’m not running away from my current situation.  The thing is I don’t absolutley love it like I do when working on cars.  So who knows, it’s a thought that’s out there.  Maybe become a certified with a school like ITT-Tech or something, I haven’t really done any research on the subject, but I can’t get that thought out of the back of my head.

Friends and I have talked about opening our own shop since high school.  Who knows?  Maybe someday it will be a reality.  I know Valentina will be happy with whatever I choose, so it looks like only time will tell…

I’m down. Overall, I wanna give up the IT world and work on cars as well. Just gotta make sure the $ and stability is there.

yup im all for it too. i can help him out since i’ve worked in the industry before (albeit more on the operations/public relations side of things). i agree that $, stability, and enjoyment are all key factors in making the decision.

I’ll be your oil specialist/monkeywrench-retriever! LoL, only because its the only thing I can do in under 30mins.

Every other project that I take on takes a little more than a few hours.

BTW, ITT is good but also look into the community college systems…
