Re: spent my life savings on a boat, looking for work.

While everyone speculates (and that's all it is) about Steve's motives, background, circumstances, I think it'd be incredibly funny if he's typing all this from the third floor of his parent's mansion.

I grew up with a descendant of the guy who founded GE. In high school (public) this kid looked homeless and was always working at low-paying jobs yet he could have bought and sold on a whim any number of the people and merchants who looked down on him. He had a trust fund up the gazoo yet didn't flaunt it.

My point is, NONE of us know enough about Steve's true background to make any assumptions about him based on where we were at that age or what we did to get where we are today. He wants to race. If anyone knows enough about that area of sailing, just help him do it forcryingoutloud. If whatever choices he makes are a mistake, he'll find out soon enough.

Re: spent my life savings on a boat, looking for work.

well if any one is wondering I grew up in a trailer park, and worked my way up from the bottom to where i am now, i Have two hard working parents that have always supported me no matter what, but I always felt the need to earn things for myself or the hard way. I also have had amazing coaches, and an absolutely amazing sailing director who helped me get to where I am today. I do not believe in free hand outs, I will live on the 14 with a boom tent if it comes down to it. this thread is getting a little out of hand. I was just wondering if anyone had any insight on jobs i could apply for.

Although it's Alberta it probably represents the shortest path to your financial goal.

There are other ads in the Halifax Chronicle Herald which you can easily check on line at Jobs | The Chronicle Herald
