I broker professional liability insurance for design professionals (architects and engineers), which means I don't much fit in on HN, but I enjoy the content anyway.

Most would call what I do boring, and some of it is. I do enjoy working with our clients, most of whom are easy going, like to shoot the shit and talk about the interesting designs and projects they are working on. Some of them have worked on some incredibly large projects in Houston and Dallas. I also enjoy digging into their contracts and offering non-legal advise to help them mitigate their risk.

Is it fulfilling? A little bit, but I realized that if I allow work to be my biggest defining factor, I'd probably be frustrated most of the time. I like my team, and others in my office, and I get paid very well for my market. I'm not overworked and have time to do other things that interest me. I spend a ton of time with my wife, and have a great community of friends.

My life as a whole is fulfilled. My job contributes to that, but I count it a small factor.




"My life as a whole is fulfilled. My job contributes to that, but I count it a small factor."

Best answer so far.


That's very interesting. I am a design professional at an MEP firm in Houston who also reads HN because I enjoy the content and it pertains to my hobbies.
