My name is Bill Wellington, and for 27 years, I was a swim coach for Wellington, the local high school. As a high school swim coach, I enjoyed my share of fame, and there were many times that I was able to coach my kids to victory in the state championships. I had a giant trophy case full of bright shiny trophies, and my skill as a coach really came through many times, and it filled that trophy case.
However, after almost three decades teaching swimming, it was time for me to hang up my trunks and retire. However, what was I going to do now that I was retired? I found a great career in the car rim business, and its been challenging and fun just like swimming once was.
My New Life In the Auto Industry
Why car rims? That is a question I always get from my family and friends, and the truth is that I enjoy it. I deal with people from all over the United States, and they are all interested in rims. The fun part for me is searching for car parts, which is just like being a detective. I get to look for original rims, original wheels, and if I can’t find either one, I look for replacement wheels. It is quite challenging to find these car parts, and when I do find them, its quite satisfying to me.
I always thought detectives were talented, and I actually get to play one! For a man like me, who spent my life teaching kids how to swim, I really find it quite enjoyable to help people find the parts they need to make beautiful cars. Okay, so maybe I don’t get a whole lot of pay for what I do, but then again, I never got paid a whole lot being a swim coach either, so it was never about the pay. I was a swim coach, and now am a car rim salesman, because I want to be and I actually do like what I do.
Memories Of My Former Life
Even with my new wonderful life selling car rims, I still cannot help but remember what it was like when I spent many hours a day in a big Olympic size swimming pool. However, now, it is a fond memory for me to think about my swimming days, and all the kids I got to know over those 27 long years. Today, I still see some of the kids that stayed here in the same town I live in, and its great that they all have their lives now.
Even though I work in the car industry, I still love to swim, but of course, now I do it for exercise and to keep in shape. For anyone that wants help finding car parts, I am the king, and I am thankful for the two wonderful and exciting careers I have had in my life. I was a swim coach for 27 years, and now I work in the car industry, and what an exciting retirement it has been so far.
