    I am a CFO?!

    I was working in logistics as a freight broker in a bigger city due to poor job availability at the time. Due to my medicinal usage of cannabis, even with a card, it made employment an issue. One day, the gentleman whom I did my internship with (also my best friend's dad), called me up and asked if I would want to do bookkeeping for a new venture. I did not hesitate to get out of my miserable job in the big city. Little did I know I would be working with the sacred herb.. In the weeks that followed, I went from bookkeeper, to CFO, to having a little bit to do with everything. It is surreal to me how much someone can feel valued in the workplace by just offering involvement. I am beyond blessed to be where I am today. I cannot determine if this is sheer luck or if the universe has a plan. Regardless, this change in employment has been life changing in many ways; all of them positive.

    Work and my first novel

    I work for a consultant engineering company--primarily stormwater, mining, construction design and permitting applications that address requirements for all governmental agencies. Lots of paperwork, calculations and Autocad. BUT, that's my day job. I just published my first novel on Amazon (here):

I started out wanting and trying to be some kind of an artist. I went to college in the late sixties and...then.. I seem to have misplaced about ten years of my life. I've looked everywhere, even behind the fridge, but still can't find them. I did alot of off beat odd jobs to stay afloat while not trying to get a real job, not knowing, of course that they were real jobs. Reality was never my strong suit. In 1987, I went back to school at UCLA and became a paralegal and I now work in a law office in LA where I act like a paralegal. So far, they seem to beleive me.

I am a homeless outreach worker in Boston. I enjoy what I do, and it keeps me busy. I help folks with housing, keeping housing, income ect. As well as reaching out to the homeless on the streets of Boston. It doesnt seem like work most of the time, it seems more like being a head with resources.

I moved to High Point NC after realizing that not much was going on for me in Staunton VA. Started hanging sprinkler pipe (fire protection) and 6yrs later I started in design. Never thought I would get to spend all day listening to great music.

I'm a real estate agent in the DC metro area (VA, MD, DC). It's the perfect job for me. I don't have to sit in a stuffy office, the hours are flexible, and every day is something different. Just got back from the Wilkes-Barre show. I forgot how much I missed the scene. It's good to be back :)

I work as a project manager for a fairly large telecommunications company. It has been ohhh 14 years- insane- although my passion are those furry ones- I am too darn scared to leave. I am finding it hard to follow my dreams while living in this life of mine. For now i will keep dancing and be grateful for having a job and living the life I do.

I'm a laborer with a contractor who specializes in ponds and pondless "water features", such as waterfalls and streams and things for backyards mostly. It pays the bills and here in california unemployment is quite high and I'm just thankful to have a job. I love being outdoors and I rarely miss a sunrise. It's also fun taking on a different a different task each day even if I am moving several cubic yards of dirt or lifting heavy rocks. I'm living proof that we "hippies" aint lazy!

Well, after searching for years for a job I can actually feel good about, I went to school and became a nurse. I am now working nights as a charge nurse in a long term care center. I never wanted to quit my job touring, but having a child 14 years ago pretty much put a stop to that. In the same year, my daughter was born and Jerry was gone. Luckily she was wble to make it to a few shows in her stroller!

I answer phones for the PBS station here... and between this and the last job I had, I haven't worked for a for-profit company in over a decade. No wonder I'm poor. But happy, so it is a fair trade.

...and I finally got to write a story on the Dead! It's about our trip from Florida to see the Dead in Denver earlier in the month and lessons learned along the way. The editor of a local paper here in southwest Florida agreed to publish it on their site. Talk about mixing business with pleasure! Anyway, it's titled "Lessons from the Golden Road." Here's a link: http://pelicanpress.org/content/1042_1.php I'm hoping to get some more gigs with them, so good, bad or indifferent, if you check it out please leave a comment at the end. Thanks: Grateful for the gig in Florida...

Casey09Keep on writing! I live in Miami and write also-- mostly screenplays (I am a dreamer) I am an insurance agent working with mostly small family owned construction companies-it's been tough many of my customers/friends are really hurting. I love what I do My checking account is my boss I work as much or as little as I need to and the people I work with are fantastic. They find me being a Deadhead amusing. I will run into some construction execs who admit to seeing them. There is one old guy (I'm guesing late 60's) who is semiretired that claims he saw them all of the time in the Avalon Ballroom along with the Jeffferson Airplane before Grace Slick. And the road goes on forever.... BobbaLee

...and feeling like a flashback to college 30 years ago. Except there was real Grateful Dead then. Now, it is like some version of deadhead hell where I still have to study but the world is in freefall and so is the band, though it looks like everybody will land on their feet, who the hell knows?

I'm a freelance writer, translator and editor, native New Yorker, living in a village in the French Alps. I've been in France for 25 years; which means I didn't see the Dead in the last decade or so. (My last show was probably 81, in fact.) Turning 50 this month; got on the bus in 1976.

I work in Technology .... by passion a software developer which, when done right, in a creative art form --- just put the headphones on with some good music and get lost in the magic world of creating some inventive and well crafted code. On a good day writing code, you can get lost in the creation and the time flies by -- like performing the perfect jam! Somewhere along my career, I took a detour and moved through the management ranks. Currently in senior IT management for a global company and spend a ton of mindless hour sititng in meetings talking about pointless topics, putting together ridiculous operating models, and swearing that I'm done dealing witht the politics. Have gotten to see some terrific places (London, Amsterdam, Paris, Edinburgh, NY, Boston, Toronto), but ready to move on and get back to the real passion -- software dev!

After several years of touring I found myself bumming around the country and decided it was time to get a real job. i ended up cooking in restaurants for many moons and finally realized that tho i loved cooking I did not like the long hours for little pay. After working in the kitchen at a country club and seeing all the stock brokers driving fancy cars and playing golf all day i figured that would be a better gig. I got my crap together, got some govt loans and went back to school. I ended up with a finance degree and a job with a wall st firm. I basically book the trades that the brokers are making and make sure everything flows smoothly...not the high paying job everyone thinks of when they think "wall st". Not that it's a bad job, it's just not going to afford me the early retirement i was hoping for ;)

No, really I am a Bookseller and Bookstore Manager for one of those Big Box stores. I love it most days because it's like a dream job, but working for a big company like that has its drawbacks. I also do some blogging and sell used books on the side. We hope to relaunch our site in January - www.chinacatbooks.com Share your Grateful Dead Tattoo or just poke around http://gratefuldeadtattoos.blogspot.com/

I like the night life, the bands and all. I get up when the sun goes down and go to bed when it comes up. You might say I'm a vampire "Draw the curtains, curse the glare", you know how it goes. I never thought I'd make this a profession but, hey, it pays the mortgage and I'm not really working. I just moveed my way up the food-chain and now I just do the rounds. Got a steady job. Lot of people I know aren't making it. At least I stayed in the same fucking line long enough to get lawyers and bondmen on retainers.

I work on wind turbines and it is an awesome field to be in was a carpenter in the truest sense of the word and due to the economy it went away and this came along. So right up my alley since I like to turn wrenches and work on something that is something so much bigger than all of us and will benefit future generations instead of satisfy someones ego( sorry worked on too many Mc Mansions )

I'm another old hippie who forgot to chase the cash.Instead, I look to understand the prehistory of us all. I teach the night course version of human evolution, and I do some pretty cool research. I look at food residues inside of old pottery. Buried in the charred stuff is evidence of what was being cooked. I use a microscope and an image analysis system and look at the microscopic bits and determine what was going into the pots. I love archaeology and microscopes, and I have even learned to love multi-variate statistics. Got a lot of research published in national and international journals. I was too young for the inspiration to come from Sandoz, but I sure loved the inspirational material produced by Bear Owsley. In fact, most of my research was just so inspired! So, long live all of us who never really gave up on the sixties! bobt

since I had a job, finally, looks like I might have a pt job. It's not the marketing director for rhino, but, it's a job. Just have to pass a bg check, and since I'm not a criminal....wait, we are all outlaws in the eyes of amerika, thank the gods they aren't checking for that. :)Just say "no" to drug tests. All they do is identify pot smokers, and if ya want happy workers, let them smoke pot, or, at least, don't test them for it. Just an observation, but has anybody else noticed that people who have "drug free" positions seem, to me anyway, lame. slow and uninformed? No passion for their work? Just an observation.

That's quite a vague generality you tossed up here. I am not required to take any test in my line of work, which involves active supervision, new employee training, old employee updating, and performance review. Passion may be slipping away as I am real close to retirement.

Wel I for one don`t smoke weed ! Clean and sober except for a beer or two every two to three weeks . Besides for being under employed , I happen to LOVE what I do ! I take great passion for doing my work . weather it be driving a truck or working on someones car .I do my job well and folks love me for it. The smiles on Grandma`s face when she can drive herself to the market , it`s Pricless !! " lame, slow, uninformed," maybe the one who wrote this should take a long hard look at themselves in the mirror . Do pot smokers deliver you groceries to the market you shop at , or any goods that you need to survive . I don`t think so . Do pot heads and drug users make for quality mechanics , I never seen one . And Marye , well hell I thought you where better then that . I am shocked in horror to hear that you really think that way .

Do pot smokers deliver the truck loads of you favorite bands CD`s and DVD`s to the store for your enjoyment ? Or do pot smokers deliver the bands equipment to the next arena ? NO I don`t think so !! Think about the ways you think , or is it the weed that keeps you closed minded ? unable to think clearly . Think about it , think about the folks who give up the ability to smoke weed so YOU can have a normal life .

not a matter of disrespect for people's own judgment on their personal substance limits, which lord knows deserve respect, but of disrespect for the sort of workplace that requires testing for drugs as a condition of employment, a requirement that, evidence suggests, involves a certain amount of Kool-Aid drinking of another sort. Of course there are situations where people's safety is involved and drug testing is legit. But as an employment screening thing for office jobs and the like, it's a clear, and irrelevant to the actual work, deterrent to Those People. Questioners of authority and so on.

this was actually a pretty big issue in Silicon Valley about 20 years back. Tech companies tended to not care or even tacitly encourage it until federal funding started being contingent on "drug-free workplaces" and suddenly programmers were having to pee into cups to keep their jobs. The issue of working impaired and the issue of what substances are in one's system vary wildly from person to person and job to job. The issue should be impairment, not chemistry.
