Hahaha oh my that is surprising Dan!
My very sweet analytical child would say he wanted to be a '"dad" when he grew up - told my husband that is a great complement to him. (:

I wanted to be a trash collector so I could hang off the back of a truck!

Thanks for sharing the list, Dan. I'm still sticking with Author, because it's the only one on that list I can do in my pajamas, drinking coffee, with my dogs snoozing at my feet. 

BTW, the welder job is indeed demanding, but a pretty sweet deal these days. Our son went to welding school after high school (he was never a traditional college kid). After the 7-month program, he came back here to Houston and had a job within two weeks. He recently changed jobs -- better opportunity and pay -- but he just turned 20 and is making more than most 4-year college grads I know of. And, more importantly, he absolutely loves his work. Not sure about TN, but here in Texas the income and hiring outlook for welders is quite positive.  My engineer hubby is thinking about switching to welding. :)

Hmm.  I wonder if I could drive a bus.  Probably not, I would try to write at every stop we made.

Dan...my twin daughters had interesting career aspirations when they were younger that both involved the color red.

  • McKenzie wanted to be a "Target Checkout Lady."
  • Kelsey wanted to be "Santa Claus."

Haha nice Dan! My cousin wanted to be a garage man when he was little. That's not too far off :D

I find it funny that being a Bank teller is worse than some of these others!

CareerCast.com just ranked 200 jobs from best to worst based on five criteria:  physical demands, work environment, income, stress, and hiring outlook.  Being an author came in at #156.  Look at the company we keep - ha!

156 Author
157 Bus Driver
158 Welder
159 Hotel Manager
160 Garbage Collector
161 Stationary Engineer
162 Bank Teller

Hey if this writing thing doesn't work out I'm going to be a welder - I always thought would be kinda cool.

Good article Jim, thanks for posting.  That does help seeing someone else's insight on how they are doing things when they are writing.

Andy, great job.  Wow, debt free....  We are working on it Andy, thanks for encouraging us.
