Well guys, I took the plunge. And decided to seek employment within the 4x4 industry. I start tomorrow at UV4x4 at Brendale as a salesperson. Pretty keen to get my teeth into it. And finally enjoy what I do. Household goods was starting to bore the s**t out of me. Mind you I have done that for the last 12 years. It will be a little strange to be a salesperson again as I have spent the last 6years managing and owning retail outlets. Money doesn't seem to have the spark it use to too drive me. I'd rather enjoy what I do than hate it and earn a few extra $$$ a year.
Cheers
Troy

I've worked in a couple of 4x4 shops as sales and fitting and it was alright, but didn't seen to fulfil me and didn't really have room to progress, I'm only 22 though. Went on to labouring and now am an apprentice lecky and I love it. Good luck but mate, would be awesome enjoying working with what you love.

Thanks mate, I've done all the progression I've wanted to do for now. It's just going to be nice to want to go to work. Not to say I don't want to progress in the future.

Having a several mates at few 4b stores, a common theme is watch how many "MATES" you will have as soon as word gets out where you work.... and when you cant give them discount, watch how many you DONT have..

Well done, moving onto to something new is sometimes a big leap, but a change is as good as a holiday they say, might not get away from whitegoods completely, hope you move a few fridges lol

Goodluck with the job Troy. The 4by industry can be tuff, but with your passion and life experience should be a walk in the park.
Enjoy.
