I currently work as an environmental engineer (no real engineering, just writing reports for other people) but I'm getting more and more fed up of sitting in an office all day doing something I don't really enjoy.
I'm in my early 50's and really don't want to be doing this till I retire, hopefully in about 10 years time.
Therefore, I've been wondering what I could do instead.
Although I've got a good education (Masters degree) I don't really have any transferable skills, so I started thinking of becoming a mobile mechanic. I can already build wheels and undertake most mechanical work, but I was planning on taking some proper formal training to get me to a level that will enable me to do this professionally.
I don't have a mortgage and I'm not too bothered about making a million out of this, however, I don't want to end up massively in debt either. I also thought that it would be something I could do to give me a little extra cash when I actually reach retirement age and I'm only getting my beer vouchers from HM Government.
Has anyone else done this?
Any personal stories of success or failure would be appreciated.
