I have two jobs. By day I work as a Global Concierge Liaison. My day job is filled with making life smoother for the travelers. For the most part I help people who travel with pretty much everything they need (except airfare). If you need a limo in London, theatre tickets in New York, or a tour of the Sumo stables in Japan, or a ticket on the Z train in China then I just might be the one to talk too.


I do everything a hotel concierge does except on a global scale. The job requires quite a bit of creativity as our customers have asked for some pretty odd things. For the most part I manage to fill all the requests. It's not easy, sometimes it's a real challenge.

By night I am an independent web designer and digital artist. Most of my artwork that does not go on a client's website ends up on my own.

Well, I am a self-employed childminder...I look after children in my own home. Sort of a cross between daycare and nursery teacher (what with all the new regulations and they are now coming out with a curriculum for babies!!). Good job, but do have some days where I want to run screaming for the hills...lol. But, its the only job I can really have where I get to stay at home with my daughter, so that's a bonus.

Wow, lots of diversity here :)

Lets see,
I run a homebased business, I'm an author, and professional lyricist (songwriter).

For the record however, for a writer; my spelling usually needs help lol, but that's what editors are for, would hate to leave someone without a job now ;)

I am self employed and do housekeeping and personal care for elderly. I am not a nurse however. Everyone i care for can take their own meds and personal hygiene. I just help with the hard stuff like laundry, cooking ,and grocery shopping. plus take to the beauty salon and Dr. appmnts.
Some weeks I go to the grocery store 6 days out of the week and have cleaned more that 11 bathrooms. My son says that must be one of my favorite rooms, cause not only do I spend so much time cleaning them I spend a lot of time in mine at home too. I just can't ever seem to get out of there.

Hi Bubs, this is a nice topic-- it helps us see each other in a more balanced way-- so nice to see what people here do!

I am an art director for a magazine company. It's a fun job! I get to design magazines and work with artists and writers all day. I also do a lot of freelance graphic design work for all sorts of companies. I love it.

Hi bubs

I'm a Developmental Services Worker...a counselor in a group home for individuals with a developmental disability....we teach life skills, care for people with physical disabilities and a whole list of other things....personal care, sign language classes, etc. I love my job and feel that I am making a difference...It's a very stressful job but I love the challenge. I must agree with one of the other ladies on here.....I too do not think that it is a coincidence that the BBW are flocking to care oriented fields of work....after all...and tell me if I'm the only one...but I've always felt that I've had to compensate for my weight problem by being kinder and more caring. I guess I've always wanted others to see how great I am inside because i didn't think they could see past my physical imperfections....I had to somehow compensate....and of course I've learned compassion..having been a victim of ridicule and ignorance....so there you have my take....great question bubs. Thanks.

Huggle ... they are the ones we usually get on April fools day and I have back up when we get calls like that ... I just let them know that they have had a joke played on them ... and then I say, go back and tell whomever told you to call, that You didnt get to speak to Sue ... but you spoke to her supervisor BEV
