For the last year or so I have been working on a radical plan to fund future adventures (or simply sitting on me backside chillaxing!)....historically I had mixed up a life of paperwork (and a bit of wheeling and dealing - some well past the polite end of freemarketeering
)....with lots of extended travel around the world over a couple of decades...by jumbo jet.
But for too many recent years my life has pretty much been on hold whilst I slowly came to terms with past life "events" (lol), which took a toll on both motivation (including boat
refit) and the DOJ
So I decided I needed a source of income
I could come back to on my own schedule to pick up cash, even at the price
of working like a dog!
So I came up with taxis! Not such a stretch for me as family
involved with taxis in Jersey since before the war. Jersey of course not downtown Manchester or LA - but nights we do have the odd pillock!, but after "exposure" to the Bangkok unregulated lending business (lol) (i still miss that woman
- not her family so much! ) my definition of scary folks is somewhat different to many others. Plus I have always been mor curious about how events
work out than fearful - which projects as self confidence. Plus my risk assessment process of when to run like hell has always worked well. Of course in Jersey (and by the nature of the taxi bizness in not knowing folks beforehand) not allowed / not possible to be proactive in preventing problems.
Another long ramble from DOJ! All that I guess to say that driving a taxi, especially at nights, not for everyone and will depend on location for how sane to risk! (over here no need for a screen
, let alone bullet proof glass!...despite us having very liberal (easy) gun ownership
laws - unlike the UK mainland).
Of course their are licencing requirements (me will take a couple of years to get the right licence that works for me) and over here also a residency angle - but that not a problem for me to meet, even when not physically here.
Having said that, am fighting off the urge to set up a taxi firm / revolutionise how the taxis work here......
......but hopefully I will stick to plan A! How much the next adventures involve a boat
is another thing! (I grew up with them so for me nothing special, including foreign travel.... But all that one for later).
Not to say I will be giving up the freemarketeering end of life, if only for fun
Go now!(ish) - go by Taxi!
