Hello! Last June I sat in a boardroom with 30 of my company "peers". All were at least 10 years older than me, none with young children and few seemed to have the type of balance in life that I strive to achieve. This was my FTE. Although I had gotten off on being a bad-a$$ throughout my career, I no longer wanted that boardroom or the lifestyle of those people. I no longer fit the mold and I didn't want to. I wanted to be near my family, not across the country. I wanted to be kicking a$$, not ranting about departmental hurdles. Now I'm in the process of creating my own boardroom. Mindset and dealing with rejection have been the hardest hurdles so far, but with persistence, I know my skin is getting thicker. Excited to be here!

Welcome to the forum, thanks for sharing your FTE.

Are you still employed or have you taken the plunge?
I left corporate 2 months after my FTE (I didnt have a term for it at that time, i just knew i needed OUT) and am consulting. I'm still paying bills from the consulting gig, it might be more honest to say I'm juggling 2 jobs and haven't fully plunged. Consulting is still trading time for $$$... is the consensus here that's not a plunge?

Kneel down ye sinners, to
Streetwise religion
Greed's been crowned the new King
Hollywood dream teens
Yesterday's trash queens
Save the blessings for the final ring-

Take a ride on the wild side
Wild side

I carry my crucifix
Under my death list
Forward my mail to me in hell
Liars and the martyrs
Lost faith in The Father
Long lost in the wishing well

Take a ride on the wild side
Wild side

Fallen angels
So fast to kill
Thy kingdom come on the wild side
Our father
Who ain't in heaven
Be thy name on the wild side Holy Mary
Mother may I
Pray for us on the wild side
Wild side. Wild side

Name dropping no-names
Glamorize cocaine
Puppets with strings of gold
East L.A. at midnight
Papa won't be home tonight
Found dead with his best friend's wife

Take a ride on the wild side
Wild side
Take a ride on the wild side
Wild side

Gang fights
Fatal strikes
We lie on the wild side
No escape
Murder, rape
Doing time on the wild side
A baby cries
A cop dies
A day's pay on the wild side
Wild side, wild side
Tragic life on the wild side
Wild side, wild side
Kickin' a$$ on the wild side

No goin' back on the wild side
