Hanno, wish you all the best in the new career and well done for getting qualified while holding down a day job!

Indeed

Hat's off to that

Not everyone has the discipline


I was lucky in a sense - Lockdown gave me 3 weeks of  full day study leave , and then another 5 weeks of half day study leave.

So I managed to do BIG chunk of the studies without having to my day job as well.

You can keep the monitor  :imaposer:

I know you will make a success of things.

Thank you Shaun ( @Bring It On  ). You were one of the first fellow bikers that I was introduced to when I started this journey.

I am sure we will get some time to go ride together in the future.

I did the opposite.
I was sick of programming I bought my own IT business 15 years ago.
I sometimes miss being able to concentrate on only one thing at a time.
You will enjoy it I think it only gets boring if you lose interest.

I have been working in the retail sector for the last 25 years and in the bike industry for the last 12. I think anyone in the retail sector will tell you that it starts to wear you down.

In the last year and a half I have been studying part time and recently I earned my SAS Base certification. With this I have received a job offer with IQVIA to become a Programmer/Analyst.

And so at the end of this month I will be leaving Mad Macs Motorcycles to pursue this new career.

Looking forward to the new challenges.

I am guessing I will have to ask a MOD to change my forum name. And I will obviously no longer be a Vendor. But I will still be around. Maybe ride my bike some more as I will no longer be working Saturdays:ricky: :ricky: :ricky:

Dream on... :lamer:

All the best with the change - maybe see you on the road some time  :ricky:

Yup... when the deadline looms or you are really engrossed in what you are doing, the clock stops ticking.

I often think at 19:00, let me try just one more thing. Then I blink and it's 04:00 in the morning and I'm still at it.

Tell your wife to keep you to strict working hours. 1 or 2 hours overtime, max. And no weekends (unless you get paid overtime) :deal:

Hahah - . Ri . I know that one. But that is self induced to some extent.  I am sure it will happen now and again, but i do not HAVE to go to work on Saturdays.
