A new beginning

so for all of my life I have been a laborer and blue collar guy. As some of you know I have some health issues that have got in the way of the work I am trained for. Finally my dr said I can work part time but I need low stress...well that really was not a option in the line of work I do. So I figured what do I know and what can I do? So I did some thinking and came up with fishing and Cigars. So the other day I sat down and talked with a high up in the b&m I go to regularly and asked if there were any hours I could have. He told me they were over staffed at the moment but he’d keep me in mind. Well to my surprise and delight I will be working in the cigar world and get paid for something I’m very passionate about. I’m very happy they are giving me a chance and really hope that I can possibly impact another newb to one day become a cigar geek. The future looks brighter now and hopefully everything will turn out for the best
