Male Monday switches tradie day job to real estate career
OWEN Richards switched his day job from tradie to real estate agent after a trip to Indonesia.
"I wanted to make a change in my career," the 23-year-old Gladstonite said.
Owen previously worked for a number of different companies as an electrician before making the change.
When he isn't working in sales at PRD Nationwide, he enjoys nothing more than travelling, catching a few waves and cycling.
At the weekend, Owen takes his boat, Fish and Chicks, 60km off the coast of Gladstone to surf off the Great Barrier Reef.
Other times he makes a road trip to Seventeen Seventy and Agnes Water for surfing or a weekend away with his girlfriend.
