"But like Park City it...." Someone's been censoring the forum! [img]smile.gif[/img]
Unfortunately, the big, major issue here is the fact that there would no IT jobs for Mark anywhere near by.
Heck, as Mark mentioned, there are not many IT jobs left in the US, since work is being out sourced to India. Ironically, there are more jobs suitabale to his skills in the Toronto want ads than there are for most US cities!
Ryel mentioned telecommuting. RANT ALERT: Mark can be up at all hours to talk to his "team" members in India, but Americans who work for the company can't telecommute from other US cities!
Meanwhile, the laid off US workers who have been "gym rats" are seeking alternate careers; In fitness! Being younger, and willing to work for less pay, they are taking the jobs that the older, more qualified professionals are applying for. The hypocrisy in this industry is disgraceful. Every gym wants to cash in on what they call the "Baby Boomer Market," but they want a younger instructor to present the programs, which, BTW, end up being completely patronizing to 40 and 50 somethings who are actually in better shape than the young uns' developing the programs!
WHEW!!! I feel better now!
I have emailed the seller with a few questions, so we shall see. i can already think of ways to make it more profitable, based on some of the suggestions given to me by shh. The place defintely needs a website. Also, even though I teach Pilates, I also teach other stuff. I would probably get a few more balance toys, and conduct a few sport specific classes.
Of course, the irony here, is that when I first met Mark, I had no interest in skiing, and I swore I would always want to live in a big city. Now, I'm pushing for the mountains, he's pushing for the cities! Interesting 'midlife crisis' going on here, but I guess its better than infidelity.
Anyway, for those of you who have SOs that are not really interested in skiing, all I can say is "careful what you wish for!" [img]smile.gif[/img]
Thanks for "listening!" You are all better friends than you can possibly imagine! [img]graemlins/angel.gif[/img][ February 21, 2004, 12:41 PM: Message edited by: Lisamarie ]
