Come on, quit your day job

My father is always talking to me getting a pension. Sticking with one company until you retire and cashing out. “Daddy (my father refers to himself in the third person) has been with the City of Winnipeg for more than 30 years.”

But we’re the “have-six-different-careers generation,” I say.

When I worked at the weeklies in Winnipeg, one of the reporters quit to become a nurse. I love that. So, I loved meeting Jennifer Waters. She worked at Microsoft for more than 10 years and finally quit this year to pursue her dream of being a fashion designer full-time.

I profiled her for the Post. Check our her line, House of Groves. Her spring 2011 collection is being shown today at the Exhibition.
