    I wanted to be a stewardess, but my parents were against my choice. I worked as a consultant at a pharmaceutical company, and recently I've decided to change my occupation and started learning web design building websites by means of different wordpress car wash store themes. I should say, I like my job, and I hope it will allow me to be my own boss and earn enough money.
