What did your parents do for a living? Did you follow in their path? My dad broke and shoed horses on the side and owned a plumbing company. My mother was mostly a school teacher (2nd grade) and then went to work at an engineering company as a field manager after they divorced, when I was grown, Did any of you follow in your parents footsteps? Military etc? My father passed and is remarried to a Naval Captain, retired airline pilot of 36 years. I'm a SAHM and my brother is a speech pathologist because he hated plumbing lol. I think if my step dad had raised me I'd be a different person.

My mom was a teacher and my dad was an accountant. I planned on teaching for many years but ended up on a different path.

Idk what my mom did (she dipped out of my life when I was 8) but dad worked in factory work until it moved over seas. Then he went on to be a very successful cars salesmen. I didn't fall into his footsteps, I was the first female in my family to join the military, and also received a college degree. I'm a substance abuse treatment counselor and marriage counselor

My mom interviews the financial community.

I'm an administrative assistant, and I transcribe part time for my mom's business.
