What’s Your Dream Job?

Posted by Mrs Money on May 2nd, 2011


The other day I was thinking about what I really want to do with my life.  Ultimately I want to be a stay at home mother when the time comes, but I don’t know how long that’s going to be.  If I don’t get pregnant within the next six months or so, I’ll probably very seriously consider going part time and doing things I love with the rest of my time.  One thing led to another, and I realized there are many different career options I could have gone with.  I’m pretty happy with banking; I don’t love it but I don’t hate it either.  However, I definitely wouldn’t have thought that’s where I would make my career.  Here are some of my dream jobs:

-Zookeeper.  I’d love to work at a zoo with exotic animals.  I love giraffes, and I think it would be awesome to work with them every day.

-Traveler.  Having some type of job where I travel to fun places to work would be awesome.  I have traveled a few times to different cities to train people with the bank, and I think having a job where they paid me to travel like that would be cool.  I don’t think I’d want to be gone all the time, but maybe a few days a month would be fun.  Or I could get paid to review food and hotels and eat and stay places free.

-Personal assistant. I think it would be fun to be a personal assistant to a celebrity or someone rich for a little while.  I think after a few months it might get old though, so let’s pretend it’s a temporary position.

Housewife.  I think this would be fun if I had activities planned where I could hang out with friends during the week, or volunteer to do things I’d like to do.  It would be fun to help others and not have to worry about working.

-Blogging! I think blogging full time would be a great profession because I could work from home and do something I love.  I just need to figure out how to make more money blogging, and I’ll be all set!

I think if I were going to go back to school I’d probably go back and study nutrition.  I had considered going back to school for nursing a few years ago, but then realized that probably wasn’t such a great idea because I don’t believe in a lot of the western medicines that are shoved down peoples’ throats.  I know that medicine is necessary in certain situations, but I think some medications are prescribed unnecessarily to people these days.

I think it’s fun to daydream sometimes, and I also think it’s funny that so many people work jobs that they would have never seen themselves working.  It will be interesting to see what my career is in ten years!  I hope that no matter what I am doing at that point that it makes me happy.

  1. I think I’d like to help young families. I want to be a family cooridinator. Teach them to food shop, meal plan, cook, help them pursue there dreams in regards to school, work, and families. Help them to parent. I think if every family on social services had a family who could invest about 10 hours a week with them, then they could eventually get off the system and contribute to society.

    (I currently am on the system with health insurance and food stamps.)

    Another way to make money blogging is to get paid to write other people’s blogs, rather than trying to bring all the income in from your own. I think you might enjoy doing that, and you can stay at home doing it. 🙂

    Jessica- Great point! I should look into doing some more of that. I write for Savings.com right now and that’s always a nice bonus!

    I’m loving my life right now, but I think after my kids are grown and outta my house, I might like being a doula. Maybe?


    Mrs Money Reply:

    Kacie- I think that would be awesome! I think doulas are amazing. How great would that be to help another woman through birthing a baby?


  5. My dream job would be to be the head of research for a non-profit organization like Red Cross, American Cancer Society, Alzheimer’s Association, etc! That would be really cool!


  6. My ultimate dream job is working mostly from home. I think that blogging creates a wonderful opportunity for that. I recently started a guest blogging contest hoping that would perhaps jump start the amount of quality articles and vistitors our blog gets, have yet to see. I think that helping others is a great thing tho. In the long run, running a non-profit would be a great thing in my mind
