If you could wake up tomorrow morning and be magically tansferred into a completely different job, what would you want to do?

I mean a PAYING job that would support you––not porn reviewer, beer taster, or machine gun test driver.

I'm looking for some ideas, seriously.

A mundane as it might sound, I suspect that a dollar store might be a great business.

I'm in the process of starting my own retail store.

Sure it's a lot of work and long hours, but if you like what you do...

Anything that compensated me fairly for the expertise and hard work I do that offered benefits.

The ultimate "job" would be to have no job... have a big enough reserve of money so I could afford living and my hobbies.

That said, I've been busting my ass trying to sell my two screenplays. So, I guess that would be my pick, screenwriting.

a journalist, sports news rep/announcer for college football or hockey, I would have to avoid basketball like the plague since I hate it. I have always enjoyed politics and legislation not sure if I would want to work in Washington though. probably just at a state level.


ETA i currently work as a paralegal in a small family law office. I would really like to just be a stay at home mom/wife, but that would not bring in any income.

I will take these from my dreams at night.

1. Transformed with fresh new talents?
A. Any date in history? = Mammoth hunter.
B. Present? = Fighter Pilot.

2. Transformed with my current talents?
A. Any date in history? = American Explorer early 1800s.
B. Present? = Pickup truck restorer, 1800s to 1970s trucks.

Something in forensics or some kind of police investigation work might be cool.

Maybe an intelligence analyst or some other behind-the-scenes job in national security.

Or maybe a high-end food producer like a distiller, or a cheesemaker, or a prime beef aging facility or something like that. (A family-run business, not a giant corporation.)

If my body could handle it... probably a custom woodworker. Fancy stuff like cabinets and furniture. I'd do that after serving as an officer in the US Air Force (which I can't do for medical reasons).

Office work? Since college, I've wanted to be the brand manager for an automobile or motorcycle company.

While I'd probably have some fun being a gun dealer, I don't think there's a ton of money in that.

And in all seriousness, I think being a U.S. Senator would be interesting. I want to be the first senator on "Meet The Press" to use the word "douchebaggery."
