Default What have you always wanted to work in or have a career in?

I grew up watching my parents run several businesses and naturally, I've generated interest in running a business as well. I've thought about restaurant-ing, which certainly seems attractive but the failure rate isn't so attractive. I know any business involves taking a risk but being a restaurateur is so overplayed I believe, it's something I would like to do once I retire or approach the later stages of my life. Given that I'm 17, I don't have much capital to begin with ether. For right now I'm going to go to college and plan to take over the family business(hopefully) but eventually I want to open my own business. I've always been interested in opening an Import car shop so maybe I'll pursue that.

Since I was 13, I've been selling stuff online(ebay mainly) and right now I'm still selling although not as heavily. I've earned a good amount of money as well as learn some aspects of selling.

Anyways, what do you plan on having a career in?

I don't plan on anything since I'm 24, but I always thought it'd be great to be a porn star. You just work out, bang women, and make money. Being a gang leader in prison would be pretty cool, too.

Own a BBQ restaurant, or just be a head chef in general

Criminal Justice has always interested me. I've been watching Law and Order since I can remember. I'm also into shows like CSI and was thinking of becoming a police officer for a while.

It's hard out there for a male porn star. ton of pressure on the guy. Because guys are totally disposable, and one performance failure could ruin your career... either kind of performance failure. Two poles we all find ourselves in every once in awhile. If a woman has an orgasm after 26 seconds, hey, great.

I've always wanted to be a professor.

It's a good thing I've never really wanted anything else because I'm not the type of guy who can handle not getting what he wants. I want to teach college students interesting things and get the summer off. Make enough money to have hobbies, but otherwise income doesn't matter to me. Get paid bonuses for going to conferences and arguing with people who have a lot of facial hair about arcane academic controversies that nobody else cares about and that ultimately don't matter.

I think running a medical marijuana place in Cali would be pretty sweet. I wonder whats involved in starting one of these, anyone know? i guess you need a weed license? I don't know how you could go out of business, even during a recession/depression.

Not to mention, most have to start out doin' gay porn. I thought it was a myth until I realized most male's do scenes with 7 other cats and one chick with their peace's touching each others all the time.

Same thing as me. I may get my bachelors in Criminal Justice and go from there, whether it be a CSI or a cop.
