I have about 18 years of experience conducting environmental due diligence, regulatory compliance, and corrective measures. I routinely conduct mergers and acquisition environmental due diligence for various clients including private equity companies, law firms, lending institutions, insurance companies, and corporations. M&A deals typically range a few million to ~$1B. I've worked for or any my hand in just about every major company and industry you can think of.

Project scopes typically include evaluating the target company with respect to known and potential environmental liabilities, regulatory compliance matters, and environmental capital expenditures (CAPEX). In an effort to quantify environmental business risk and liabilities, I help develop reasonable case and reasonable worst-case scenarios and costs to address the matters. These costs are typically used to lower the purchase price, may be set aside in escrow for a set amount of time, or the seller may indemnify the buyer and the seller keeps the known liabilities at the time of sale.

Hours can be nuts due to how quickly these deals move and routinely working with attorneys can be exhausting sometimes. Overall, the work is very interesting and has given me incredible insight into business, the transaction process, how deals are brokered, how entities are carved out of a business, and what's selling/what's not.

I'm an Area Director for a company called OnSite Solutions. We detail cars for dealerships in a few markets across the US. I started in KC, but have since moved to Omaha. I've been detailing about half my life, but with OnSite for around 5yrs now.

I do not detail cars often anymore because I handle all of our operations in Omaha. I staff all of my customers detail departments and train them. I'm always researching new products/tool/procedures to help my guys be better than any other dealership detail department as well as offer my customers anything they would need in the form of detailing. Since detailing is something I'm passionate about, I get to sneak away and do some cars for personal clients every now and then. That's where it gets fun for me. Eventually, my company has talked with me about coming back to KC to run some classes for some of our site managers to help them with their techniques on paint correction.

We own a few companies that are all involved in helping smaller hospitals and multi-specialty physician clinics operate sleep labs in different ways. In one we provide staffing and equipment, in another we provide training/capital/daytime management, in another we provide home sleep testing equipment and back in technical support.

I have various titles depending on the company, although my actual functional role is basically that of COO.

I office from home and probably travel on-site 4-6 days a month on average. I have ultimate flexibility in my schedule as I am my own boss, but also have to be available 24 hours a day to at least take calls as I am the end of the line on any issues that come up whether that be with day staff or with overnight sleep techs.

This does allow us to do a lot of things we couldn't do if I had a normal job as my wife stopped working about 18 months ago. As long as my internet and cell service is adequate we can pretty much travel when and where we want, which is nice and something we value and take advantage of quite a bit.

I own an insurance agency.

Very similar to Ricerking13, although I tend to spend more time on Property/ Casualty instead of Life and Annuities. I also spend most of my time educating, versus selling. If I have to SELL someone, then typically that isn't the kind of business that I'm after.

I really enjoy helping people, and get to do that on a daily basis. I set my own schedule, which is a great benefit for me (have 1yr old twins). I work on 100% commission, so sometimes my income can be somewhat unpredictable. That's about the only con I can come up with.

CPA at a Big 4 accounting firm

I deal with publicly traded partnerships, specifically MLP's (master limited partnerships). I deal with things from trial balances, tax returns, depreciation calcs, evaluating the effects of major transactions, and I deal a lot with SQL and system issues; which most CPA's wouldn't ever have to do but my group is very unique.

For the past 30years I have floated between Engineering and Project Management positions in the Controls and Automation fields.

Mostly building mechanical and electrical systems, with a few years on the industrial side mainly in the oil and gas industry.

In the past I have worked for Siemens, Sprint, Trane and various engineering firms.

Over the years I have worked on probably a 1000 different projects, from small office buildings to complete University campuses. With Sprint my team managed the environmental systems for hundreds of buildings throughout the country.

I spent a year traveling to Korea and Brazil when I wrote the programming for an entire offshore oil platform.

Pre-sales enterprise storage engineer

Began working in IT in 98. Started out in deskside support, moved to Solaris/EMC/Brocade administration, then went deep into storage area networking.

Got hired into the pre-sales realm about 3.5 years ago and never looked back. Stressful? Oh yes.. but the job is great since I have a damn good team I work with and I've grown a ton since joining the three letter company I work for that will not be named..

Job prior to that was working at Cerner as a storage engineer. Loved the job and the people but oncall was destroying me and I've got a 3 year old son.. Just needed more flexibility in my life and no more 3 AM calls for... whatever..

Man, I feel outclassed here. Lol

I'm a Plumbing Apprentice for P1 Group with the Local 8 Plumbers and Gasfitters Union.

We do a lot of hospital work. Admittedly, I had no idea what I was getting into when I took the job (thanks to KCShaner btw). Come to find out plumbers do a lot more than fix your sink.

I can now weld gas pipe, and do a lot of work with copper and cast iron as hospitals don't like pex and PVC very much. I've done anything from hospitals, to the new Truman corners, to schools. I've been in the program since July of 2014.

If you need any plumbing help, let me know!

Jack of all trades at our family owned truck stop/travel plaza of 37 years. Although we are not really your typical truck stop, we are in the truck washing business. We wash out livestock trailers on one side of the street and kosher/food grade tankers on the other, as well as truck exterior washing, and inside trailer washing of all kinds. We also have a tire shop which we service mainly large truck and ag customers, but have helped several members in the light truck and passenger world as well.

The most rewarding thing is knowing your customers. We see a majority of our customers 6 days a week, and I know many by name, carry on conversations and know their families.

I started back in the business in 2007 after being gone 14 years. We have since grown from 19 employees to 42.
