For those of y'all that know me here's one that will hit you like a 100 lb wet sack of $**t

I tendered my resignation today effective COB 19 July 2013

I've got to back off and slow down, so it's a decision my wife and I talked about and decided to go forward with. Nobody in their right mind quits a job at my level of earning, but I have, so that tells you the state of my mind.

Right now I've nothing 100% in concrete, but one thing for sure, no more full-time employment with a CB.

That's it!

I don't think there is any problem with your state of mind. You felt a need to back off and slow down, and did it. Well done, I say, whatever the future holds in store for you. :agree:

Will you be taking up the same task as a retainer with the a few CB's ...
Or you plan to be a full time / part time trainer

I understand and empathize. I hope it works out for you. Being a road warrior is tough on family ties, despite the ease of communication from Skype to unlimited voice and text and video. The stress of travel today compared with 30 years ago is hard to explain to those who think it's an adventure.

You've done a difficult job for a long time, so it's not too surprising that the returns started diminishing. Good luck in whatever it is you decide on. :bigwave:

Randy, you did it! You mentioned this was a possibility and now you've actually gone and done it. I'm very happy for you! And pea green with envy.

My friend, ..you....are.....burned.... OUT. Decompress and enjoy life for awhile. That's the only thing of value we own and all too often we're willing to sell it.

A brave decision so well done. I don't know your background or what your role entailed but I can imagine some of the work in a tiresome CB environment and I don't envy you. That said, I am 32 and extremely fed up with the world of work already and I have a long road ahead.

Enjoy your life and enjoy your family, work has really worn me down and after 10 years (on Sunday in fact), I am burnt out :nope:

Randy,

Now that you have made the decision, you can spend time with your "little car" by using it to do what it was built to do, drive with the T-top open! :applause::applause::applause:
I also will say that I too, am hoping that you will now be able to enjoy your family!
