My job sucks.  Management is absolutely horrible, but the money keeps me there. 

Hey, welcome back.  Where've you been?

I like my job/work. I know I’m underpaid which makes me always want to look, but I always fear sacrificing the flexibility I have in my job for more pay wouldn’t be worth it. I’ll probably half ass look til I find something I know would be worth it.

Love my career. Unlimited income potential, part owner of the company, can work from home when I need to, etc. When I first came into my industry in 1993, I was looking for a career when I could make the "most money possible" and I actually went to a career services type individual for guidance. At the time, he told me "stock broker" or "executive recruiter" so I looked into recruiting. Funny part is that they made me take a career assessment profile to see what career would be best and I was told the last thing I should do is sales. They recommended "Army drill sergeant." Guess I overcame that. lol

I definitely am. Being a photographer has its perks. You can go places (literally), see fantastic views that you were not able to see before.

Not really, but it's tolerable.

It significantly better than my last position, but the location and people just aren't for me. I'm also having a hard time really getting behind the products we're producing/selling.

It's great experience though and I can use it as a stepping stone to something much better, so that's keeping me movivated. I'll start exploring my options when I get closer to the 1 year mark.
