Re: What was/is your occupation?

Retired after 36 years as a hospital R.N. About 1/2 of my career was in direct patient care & the rest in management particulary related to areas of utilization, quality assurance, discharge planning, case management. I also did a few stints as a clinical instructor for the university's student nurses.

Re: What was/is your occupation?

Cashier supervisor, groom on a thorough bred horse farm, merchandise mgr for retail store, retail store mgr, data entry supervisor, IT supervisor, mgr for computer sales, IT/HR/Accounting director and finally company owner/IT/HR/accounting director.

The list looks strange but if you knew the companies involved it all makes perfect sense.

Wasn't intercst (REHP founder and 30-something retiree) also in risk management? Probably helps you see the upside of stocks and the downside of working.
