What's Your Dream Job?

I am a huge advocate for having a career that people are truly happy with. I think there is nothing better than doing something you love everyday. And if you can earn an income doing it, that's even better. I've witness too many of my friends and family go to a j-o-b they hate everyday, year after year, just so they can make ends meet. They all have dreams of a better career doing something they really love, but for whatever reason they let other things get in the way.

My mom just retired from a job that she hated. It was extremely stressful to the point that she experienced anxiety attacks. It makes me sad that she spent all that time stressed and unhappy and not doing what she really loved!

Are you happy in your career or job? If you could change careers, what would you love to do instead?
