** I also posted this in the "relocating" section since both areas may be productive for my needs **
I lived in Juneau for a few years but had to move back south, I've been gone for 10 years now and its time to get back to AK.
ATM I own a successful power washing business that I need to sell before moving, this means I will need a job when I get up to AK. My short resume is USAF 86-90, corp. world from 90-2001, AK DFG 01-03, small business owner 03-13.
I have lived, hunted and fished all over the lower 48 plus Juneau and that is a part of my life I would like to find in my next career.
I would love to move my business up to AK but AFAIK, the weather will not permit it. My skills are customer relations, sales, marketing, management, everything related to owning a small business, including laborer.
Bass Pro and Cabelas are both opening stores in Anchorage in spring 2014 and there will be LOTS of people competing for those openings. There also seems to be a strong market for businesses relating to alternative power sources (solar, wind, wood) which I am interested in. I am open to all options.
Bottom line is this, I am too old to be job hopping, whoever I work for will get the same drive, dedication and loyalty from me that I put into my power washing business. I understand that the stronger the business is, the more secure my position will be.
Strong customer relations and high quality work are what grew and sustained my business for over ten years and I will gladly bring that skill set into any new position I am offered.
Thanks for your help
