Default I wanted to be a Vet Also

I wanted to be a veterinarian also, but I don't think that would have worked out, because everytime I see an injured animal or sick animal I get emotional and start to cry. I don't think I would have had too much business!

How interesting - I wanted to be a vet, too! Didn't do that but did show horses for several years and then ran a full service boarding facility from at my current residence for the last 12 years. Have one show horse left & at 27, she's retired - just munching & napping.

when I was a child I always wanted to be a painter. But guess not. I can draw pretty well but not painting. I don't have any time to start with because I'm busy with my kids.

I always wanted to work in the field of Criminology and be like and FBI Agent or an Investiagor. Never imagined I'd be a Self Employed and working in the field of Internet Sales and Affiliate Marketing LOL!

I wanted to do a lot of things, veterinarian, teacher, astronaut, singer/dancer among other things. I am still that way today. I have been to school for so many things and still can't decide what I want to be when I grow up. I just started network marketing though and am thoroughly enjoying that right now.

I didn't have a name for what I wanted to do. I knew I wanted to work in an office and be the boss. When you're young, you don't know about the actual job titles - I just wanted to be in charge and work in an office building. Funny thing - I got the degree for it, and I got the job that would have led me to that top spot. It only took me about six months of buisness consulting to realize that I didn't want to sell my soul to be in charge. Now I'm in charge of my own business and my own classroom and much, much happier.

I wanted to be a nurse or a model! Nursing one out, but it takes so much time away from my daughter. I am learning that with the right company I can use my nursing knowledge to help others in a completely different way!

This is a great question.

I wanted to be two things: A scientist and a writer. I was only eight years old when told I couldn't do both. I replied, "Scientists write." I didn't realize at the time how true that statement really was.

However, I didn't become a scientist. I did become a writer, however. I write a novel called "Surviving Jane" that was published in 2007 and a novella for a private company in 2008. I am also a content producer. I write website content, articles for article marketing, and all of that good stuff. So yeah, I definitely followed through there. However, my dream is to write shorts, novels, etc. and less for businesses. Maybe it'll happen when finances allow me to begin breaking away from content production.
