Carl Simpson-Smith - Facebook - So I've held a PfCO for around 9 months. I decided to go for my PfCO as my day job (which I really don't enjoy that much any more) was looking like it was going to be made redundant. 
I have been at the same company for 20+ years so have no intention 
of leaving until they no longer need me, which may come soon, you never really know with the company I work for. Initially I was looking for another way to generate additional money whilst doing something that I love doing and are passionate about. I currently only use social media and have so far had three different jobs which has been by word of mouth. Looking in here is scary seeing the amount of experience in different fields you guys have, and I am now beginning to realise just how much I have to learn. I want to make more of a go of this and are attending a business development course this weekend to try and give me some pointers in the right direction. Work I have undertaken so far have been surveys to help with planning permission, but I have a few roof surveys to do when the weather picks up. That's my life story for now.
