Long-term career plans
Is your current employment part of your overall career plan? Why or why not?
I think at this time yes. I am going part time to get my degree in Horticulture as I want to continue the work I do and eventually start a business utilizing at risk teens to teach them a trade and give them a different outlet while at the same time showing them that green is good and that green can be best as well.
