What's your job

I'm enrolling in school for this spring. I'm 25 with two kids (we want more) and am tired of crappy retail jobs.. I want a real job with a decent income, but I don't know what I want to do. Even in high school, I didn't know what I wanted to be. I'm thinking a teacher or a nurse, but there's cons to both jobs. 

What do you ladies do, do you enjoy it?

I'm a substitute teacher. I don't get paid well but I love my job. When I become a full time teacher, I'll make enough to support myself.

The pros are that it's very rewarding. The cons are that you work long hours 6 days a week and get no respect or help.

Law. It is my passion. Fashion is also a passion of mine but I guess it's more so a hobby.

What do you do? How long were you in school for it?

I'm a SPED teacher. I really love where I teach but it took a while to get here. I didn't get into a position right out of college. I was an aide for two years then got my first position with a crappy district. From there I moved up to a better district, but 50 miles from home. I now teach in a very good district, close to home. Ive been through a lot in this profession so far, but to be where I am now, its been worth it.

i only work part time at a movie theater. for a part time job, it's pretty fun though. i'm older than most of the other hires, but that makes it fun. and having a family, my boss is really flexible about if i need time off or anything like that. it's not a career but it's some extra income and i like it.

I'm a financial advisor. It's tough but I love it.

Buy the book called "I can do anything I want if I just knew what it was"
You make a list of a job that would be a nightmare for you. Ie wearing uniforms, serve food.... On another page, write the opposites of each thing on the list. Now you've described your dream job.

I was a teacher, now I am an instructional specialist and do teacher training. I would say go for the nursing degree rather than the teaching degree if I were you. Many more jobs and better pay.
