    I guess I should probably write about myself now, instead of reading about everyone else :P

    I currently have two jobs. Firstly, I work as a Manager at KFC. Have been there since I was 15 as a team member. I now do this part time while I work up my business.

    My second job, dog trainer, however as part of the business, I also walk and mind dogs too

    And to anyone that's about to ask, NO, I DON'T KNOW THE 11 SECRET HERBS AND SPICES

    Oh and Newfsie, my end goal is to start a small shelter/rescue group on a large property (that I will live on) where I can retrain dogs so they have a better chance at being rehomed.

    At 18 i graduated highschool and joined the RNZ Navy, fell in love & ended up leaving a year after joining.
    Worked as a swim coach & meat worker until i moved to Brissy a little over a year ago. Now i work as a part-time Learn to swim instructor & squad coach as well as a part-time student studying justice studies in hopes of joining the police force in the future. Ultimate goal would be a dog handler in the force : )

    Currently am a child psychologist at "Headspace", also train dogs part time. Am working on a plan to own my own "dog wellbeing center" and leaving psychology behind- at least for the time being. Burnout is a drag.

    Newfsie; hurry up an get that kennel going, V&F will definitely be customers!!!

    Some pretty flash peeps out there.

    I didnt finish high school and floated round various supermarket jobs and waitressing at my mates Dad's pizza resturant. When the kid went to school I went and studied and now have a computer degree.

    Straigh out of that I was recommended for a job by the course coordinator in his sisters company and that's how I fell into technical writing. Have done jobs mostly for banks and government documenting their business processes and procedures, doing online help and learning and other shit like that.

    Currently work for a software company writing the Help (you know, the bit when you click the ?) for the software and training and installation manuals.

    Like newfsie, I would love to own my own boarding kennel. I love dogs (or all animals really) and wanted to be a vet but dont think I could handle it so a kennel for me is about perfect...probably wouldnt get many customers though LMAO

    That's me too. Slightly different "fancy title", but the shit kicking basis is the same...

    I'm planning on some night study this year... maybe I can move up the food chain a little!
