as windies out on the street , we often see other people at work , or going to work , in other lines of work not our own .

 

are there any jobs you see that a part of you dreams/wishes that you were doing? and why ?

 

the grass is always greener on the other side of course!.

Done the management job, nice car etc........but they can keep their stress, 24 hr a day email, office politics etc. 18 months into this job and wishing i'd done it sooner. Love having evenings and weekends for the family, and the stress levels have plummeted!

 

Back to original question though........always thought I would like Clarkson, Hammond or May's gig...!

ive got a degree in geography - and really liked and hoped to get a job where I can use what I've studied but now all is in the past ...

I bet you never have trouble finding a street though. :D

 

 

I've always wanted to be a fighter pilot, but don't think that'll ever happen.

i spent 20 plus years working in a middle management job for a travel company, it was very stressful it times but had quite a few good points, and I did get a sense of achievement when sales were up and things going well, but I'm really enjoying the window cleaning and have enjoyed massively starting up my own business from scratch, now on about £1200 per month turn over, so im small time but feels good having done it myself (well ok i bought about 3/4 of the work).

 

I have a serious side business trading the financial markets, me and my partner have some investors and we are making them money as well as a bit for ourselves and I guess ultimately I would love to trade from home full time, my own account (if it was big enough) so I could dump the investor money and reduce stress.

Good thread boar, i have recently thought about doing my a levels in biography and geography in a bid to get into something where i travel to distant parts of the world. But doubt it very much.

 

Then again i also keep looking at doing some sort of college course in music, i play guitar and would like to do something with it.

 

But i have tried to leave window cleaning twice already, and came back. And since going wfp i doubt i will ever try and get a proper job again. I like my lifestyle waaaaaaay too much, fair enough i will never be rich but who ever said they wish they'd worked more on their deathbed?

I wanted to buy the old disused garage in aviemore and set up a car wash(dont have any money for that) but some property developer has bought it, but they cant build just now, due to some endangered caterpillar in the area:rofl:. The reason I would like to go there is, aviemore has lochs for windsurfing in the summer, mountain biking and snowboarding in the winter. Thats the dream, dreams can come true:rolleyes: I hope. Maybe there would be a good window cleaning round instead, snowboarding from one house to another:rolleyes: I like window cleaning overall, when I'm earning a fair amount for a days graft, some days are not so good, so get a bit annoyed at that, but overall, if Im pleasing the custys and my better half, I'm happy and glad to be my own boss:). I like spending time in the cleaning stuff isles in Tesco, b&q etc looking for a product on sale or that I could use to clean somethingo_O.

this is gd thread boar, when I was young early 20s often thought of being full time karate instructor, you know when you dream of your perfect job.

But like many on here love being my own boss, planning my days work.
