Besides the obvious of gaining new skills (and for me, an entirely new industry), for the first job in my life (and hopefully I will retire here), I have gained the knowledge of what it feels like to work for a company (especially in the corporate world) that truly cares about its employees and holds the best interests of clients always first. That is a rare thing ...

From all my jobs I have ever had I gained an ability to work with any type of personality. From the work I do from home with my 3 careers now, I gained the appreciation of working without others around me interrupting my work. I have gained more skill most of all though~

There are a lot of things I have gained some bad & some good, However there is one thing we all have in common no matter how rich we are ,how poor we are ,middle class extreme poverty ( not just poor but I mean extreme poverty) We all become one when there is a death, the depth of sadness within our souls , when a baby is born a smile & warmth within us, a marriage happiness.When I was working with a co worker she put down someone that was extremely poor behind their back. I told her she has something very in common with that person, she looked at me like she could have torn into me like a
mad dog. When I told her she said she never looked at it that way, Hopefully throughout her life she thought about that before. making judgment. I to when I was younger made judgements. I have an understanding & respect for those I have mentioned.
