Firstly, thank you to all members who share knowledge on this site. It's great to see this happening in the industry and as a first time user, it's so helpful to read your conversations advice.
I am thinking of sacking it all in...
I currently work as a project manager for a big corp. I am a real outdoors lover in both how I spend my spare time, as well as what i love to read and learn about. I have worked as a tree cutter groundy for a couple of years whislt travelling, on a farm etc. I know its graft but I am fine with that and actually look forward to it. The thought of being sat down and tapping keys for the rest of my life destroys me and it's not happening. I would be aiming to set up my own company asap doing lawns or some of the easier to acess work to begin with, building up to full garden redesign after some courses, books and experiance.
I would love to just generally hear how you all find it as a career. The ups, downs, amazing moments, little perks and your viewpoint of working in an office?
Do you love your job?
Has anyone done the same move I plan and how is it on the other side? Is the "grass really greener"?!
I can't thank you all enough for taking time to reply. If anyone is around the Bristol (where i work) and South Wales, Cardiff area (where I live) to chat over a pint and life, I will buy!
