Business Consultant for one of the Big4 Global Accounting Firms - a more than full-time job. Pretty handy with most things in and around the house preferring to do most things myself, but only when I am confident I can either do it or learn how to do it - except of course for work that requires certification where I will try to be the labourer for the trades involved. I do this because I like the feeling of satisfaction I get from actually contributing to the work and outcome in a material way and also it does save money. Unfortunately it does not save time, in fact probably takes many times longer than it would if I simply paid someone to do it, especially when I only have after work and weekends which are usually quite interrupted. I am also a bit of a perfectionist - not sure if that is a good a bad thing really, but I do know that increases the time to do things.. Other than the above, I also have an active family that takes up time, especially during the soccer season.
