as I responded to my Ex who is “just trying to help”
Coding? No. I just edit files. I don’t code.
My SEO skills are different from the companies that sale SEO. My work pisses most of them off and they try to call it obsolete, because I use the format that is expected by search engines. I can do what they want, but it feels like I am playing dodge ball with 9 year olds, It’s like working a week with Trees of Houston and then going to a gym full of polo shirts and polo shorts staring at you while they curl to show YOU what they can do. It’s irritating.
What I do in AutoCAD leads to what you are calling blue prints. I don’t have an architects license or degree. That takes big money and lots of time to achieve. Though I can draw for an architect, have him inspect my work and then stamp it as his own work. There is a lot in that field I do not know. Structural design I know about 10%. I can draw existing buildings by dimensions and make notes of existing appliances for permitting, but again, I have no license in that field either.
I am considering starting up my own fire alarm design team with a few APS certified people I know and working on getting my aps License. First I need nicet level III. I failed the level I because I froze up. 130 questions, 80 minutes to answer them I freaked out and spent 10 minutes on first question and ten minutes on second question. and then it got worse. I didn’t get answers wrong. i just couldn’t answer the last 30 questions. $120 or something like that each time you take the test. and well. I don’t have that kind of money right now to take again. If I get a person to stamp my drawings, I can ask for more for each drawing. I applied at a few places last week and got a response of “How about I pay you just draw them, I’ll sign them, and you’ll make more money”
So that could pan out. If I get more companies to do this, that way I am always busy.
Fact is, I cannot make less than I was making. I wasn’t making it. I was steadily getting further into debt. my car has been in the garage for a week because I don’t want it to get repossessed.
SO I have done a couple drawings for the guy and should be meeting up with him soon for payment. I charge almost $200 less than his other guy. So I doubt he will mess me over. That is if he wants me to do more drawings. and save him more money.
So I can’t be occupied by burger king working 60 hours a week for $8 an hour, I’d never get anything accomplished and I would still lose everything and be too busy to get anything real done.
