This was exactly the questions that UK-based RED Driving School became obsessed with this year. After researching workers around the world, RED has awarded driving instructors the accolade of ‘unsung superhero’. In fact, if you’re looking to switch gears in your personal life, reach your potential and improve your health at the same time, the self-employed enjoy the most super lives.
With the help of freelance illustrator Jack Hagley, RED have created their own comic strip style infographic to get these statistics, and everyday superheroes, firmly back on the career map. Sometimes, Jess Edwards misses the little things.Like ducking down to the shops for fresh milk.
Spike Lupton tells how he changed his career from a Graphic Designer to Snowboard Instructor at Cypress Mountain for the Olympic year.It all started a few years ago, when I was an increasingly frustrated Graphic Designer. Don't get me wrong I still love design and the creativity that comes with that, I think I was just stuck in bit of a rut. Just like a song “What if God was one of us” Pope Francis bears in his mind that serving people and becoming a model of humbleness will lead us to follow him. As we become what we think, how best to remind everyone to openly love everyone (as life is an adventure not a competition)!? They’re on the big screen, the small screen, bursting out of pages of comic books, and flooding the streets every time a Comic-Con hits your city.
If you’re stuck in a life rut, it’s one solution to sit in your car and wait for some everyday Batman to come and get you out of this mess, but wouldn’t it make more sense to transform into someone with the power to take away your own worldly worries – to be your own superhero, in other words?
RED found that 67% of those who’ve taken the plunge and gone into business for themselves reporting a positive impact on their mental and physical wellbeing, and 72% finding it positively impacting on their sidekicks at home too. So if you’re interested in driving jobs, illustration or simply looking for a new lease in life, check out the infographic below and get ready to reinvent yourself accordingly. Frustrated with the day to day toil of sitting in front of a computer screen and the non-active lifestyle that goes with working long hours and frustrated with the company I was working for. I had a decision to make: should I have a fresh start in a new design job, or do something a little different.
He is just one living proof that we cannot carry our luxury in heaven, living in simplest way as long as we are happy, we are building luxurious temple in heaven.

But away from our more famous fictional counterparts (and assuming you don’t have the ability to punch through walls), how do you go about staying a superhero on a daily basis? Inspired by all the qualities of their favourite on-screen supermen , they went on a lookout for those who don’t stick to the rules, who want to protect their cities from accident and emergency, while also teaching others the value of goodness. For starters, instructors have a special power (honed over time with continuous training), which they pass on to the less educated drivers of this world. The statistics make it clear – if you’re stuck in a less than wonderful life rut, there’s definite all round benefits to dusting down your secret superhero career and saving yourself from the daily grind.
They’re also on one man (and woman) missions to slow down speed demons everywhere while also tackling every driving sin from improper merging to hesitant braking head on.
I drove further west and further north than I have ever been before.'With no prior experience other than cooking for her family, she says have up to 20 mouths to feed was a challenge.
The best part of the year was the usual week away in the mountains, so why not make it more than a week? They also work for themselves, in their own vehicle (customised with everything they might need to make their jobs easier) and to their own values and timescales. After a little bit of Googling, I noticed a few companies offering courses and one quoting 'Learn To Ride Like A Pro' seemed to stand out from the rest. He lives in everything we see, He nourishes all the living things we are touching and most of all he stays at our side even we did not ask Him. There are no perfect religions. Well, set the Catholic Pope Francis as an example that living with God is a perfect life that we are waiting for. You can't just duck over to the supermarket if you run out of cream,"On a station with 55,000 head of cattle, beef is on the menu up to four times a day.
To cut a long story short, after some intense saving, cashing in a bit of inheritance money and my Mum thinking I was barking, I found myself at Heathrow bound for Fernie for what I was hoping to be a life-changing three months. They cannot save us, but our deeds, values and pure heart will take us to the place where we will be safe. I wasn't disappointed!I decided to head out a week early to hopefully get over the jetlag and basically just to get settled. It’s not about the religion were into or how long do we serve God, but it is all about how pure our heart in serving HIM!
After the first week of riding I was getting to know the hill and my fellow course mates and the first day of the course quickly came around. Having had only about six or seven weeks snowboarding experience behind me, I was more than a little nervous how my riding would stack up against everyone else’s.


I had no need to worry though as the groups had already been sorted out according to time on snow and soon found everyone in the group was of a pretty similar ability. Similarly the laid-back style of instruction soon had us all flying down runs we were taking a bit more gingerly before!
Really laid back and it felt more like a bunch of mates out riding giving pointers on how to improve technique and by the end of the week the improvement in everybody's riding was huge. Steve would only get us to work on one thing at a time to improve our riding; something I now know is an essential part of the CASI philosophy.
They make sure that as instructors we don't bombard our students with loads of tactics and techniques which will just confuse them. Make sure everything is kept simple by using just one at a time and don't move on until the student has mastered it.As the next couple of weeks went on we got to experience the different teaching styles the instructors use. Sometimes they spoke a lot about technique and the reasons why we do certain things and why the solid stance we have had drilled into us is so important. Other times they would give us a tactic to improve a certain element of our riding and just let us ride and experience for ourselves what effect it was having on our riding.
It snowed a lot in January, so much so that at one point we had about 10 days of epic powder in a row, where the snow was at least knee deep. On days like these the mornings were pretty much spent enjoying the powder and getting used to riding snow I don't think any of us had experienced before. Getting off the Bear Chair and dropping into Cedar Ridge through the trees was just an amazing feeling and something I hadn't experienced before.Well into the third week we started working a lot more on our Level 1 assessment, so lessons started getting serious. We had to show the instructors that our riding was strong enough to get us through and they started to show us the CASI progression and how to teach lessons from complete beginners through to showing people how to do their first turns. I had my first with Sean as I felt his teaching style really suited me and we worked mostly on my riding to make sure I made the grade. He took a look at my riding and gave me a couple of things to work on to smooth out my toe-side turn and I could feel the improvement straight away. During regular lessons we started giving mock lessons to the rest of the group with our instructor looking on and pointing out ways to improve. At first I found this pretty difficult, as I'm sure the others did, I hate giving talks and had never given a lesson before. It helped loads that we were all in the same boat and helped each other out as much as we could. The tips that the instructors gave us helped as well and after giving a few lessons we all started to feel a lot more comfortable with it. A very nervy, exciting and fun three days later and we were celebrating!The CASI level 1 course is broken into two parts, riding standard and teaching. For the first two days Jay was assessing our riding constantly and showing us all the different lessons that make up the CASI progression. At the end of each day you get a quick one to one with Jay explaining what you're doing well and, most importantly, what needs to be improved. In my case he wanted to see more up and down movement and at the end of the second day it was to be more aggressive. The third day is for the teaching assessment which, for me, was the day I had been dreading most. Once the day was over though and we waited in the bar for our results the tension was almost unbearable. One by one the biggest smiles you've ever seen started appearing as people got their results and CASI badges!! The beer started flowing and didn't stop until the early hours and there were some very sore heads the next day!As the weeks rolled by we started working towards the Level 2 assessment. A lot of the early work involved watching people's riding and figuring out what needs to be worked on and different tactics to use, the riding standard is also much higher.
We worked really hard to get our riding to standard, especially the advanced sliding turns.
I found it very difficult to move my pivot point from my front foot to the centre of the board.
One day it just clicked and once I had those in the bag it was a case of doing as much mock teaching as possible to get confident with the huge amount of different lessons that had to be memorised for the exam.The Level 2 course is four days long, as apposed to three days, although it is structured in much the same way.
The last day is the teaching assessment and the first three days are spent working on riding standard and watching the assessor show us all the possible lessons and a variety of tactics to use.
Despite the fact it had snowed a fair bit on the night before day four we all did our best, I think the adverse conditions even brought out the best in us! There was a very nervous wait at the end of the day while our examiners got together and discussed my riding and teaching. I think all the difficulties affected me and added to the nerves but in the real world these are the sorts of things that happen all the time.I am so grateful to all the instructors and staff at Nonstop for a life changing three months. They work really hard to make sure everyone is happy and go the extra mile to ensure everyone is feeling at home.


As well as all the great instruction there are all the extras that make Nonstop stand out from the crowd. I'm pretty sure I didn't buy many drinks as the bar served beer in huge four litre pitchers and there was a hell of a lot of Jager going round, and I certainly had my fair share! At the end of the course there was quite a few of us that headed to Lake Louise for an extra two weeks of snow.
It was a great time and gave us a chance to unwind after all the hard work of the previous few weeks. It was super warm and we spent a lot of the time, with varying degrees of success, in the terrain park. Lake Louise being an RCR resort, the same as Fernie, there were no kickers but a lot of rails and boxes and by the end were all starting to get pretty confident with our skills.Since doing the 11 Week Course in Fernie I have spent the last two seasons working at Cypress Mountain in Vancouver. It is not the biggest of places but the terrain is fantastic and when the snow is good it can rival a lot of places. When it came to taking my first lesson I was nervous as hell but all the training from Nonstop gave me everything I needed and once I started the nerves soon went and everything came back to me without me really having to think about what I was doing. In my first season we had some amazing snow, loads of lessons and a huge FIS World Cup Snowboard competition. We were lucky enough to see pretty much all of the event, which attracted some of the top riders from around the world, competing in what would become the Olympic halfpipe. At the end of the season we had a Snowschool party with some awards, some of which were given out by the Director of the Snowschool and others which were voted for by the instructors. I was in a state of shock when my name was called out as Snowboard Instructor of the season. This was voted for by the other instructors and to get something like that in my first ever season instructing was amazing and topped off an amazing year.Last season saw the mountain preparing for the Winter Olympics, as we hosted all the snowboard and freestyle skiing events.
As Cypress is only small, it closed down completely for five weeks and as full time staff we were taken on by Vanoc to work this period. As the snow wasn't too great in Cypress this season, the mountain closed three weeks earlier to preserve the snowpack needed to build the courses. We were on paid leave for these three weeks so took the opportunity to see some other resorts.
A group of us went to Whistler a couple of times to find some fresh snow and to Mount Baker in the States. We also went to Big White for a couple of days, which was awesome.All in all I definitely feel like I made the right decision to head out to the mountains. I am now trying to decide what to do for next season and am researching as many resorts as I can in both Canada and the US.
