    Primal Fuel
    I would start a company that would change how the world things about nutrition/fitness. I would create new ideas and have someone else deal with the politics and day-to-day management, whilst I lived on a small farm doing something similar to ChefGrok

    If anyone uses my ideas, I reserve the right to sue without permission. If anyone would want to financially back me.. then I'd do it ;P

    All these things would be connected in one giant complex...Primal Revolution
    1) Create a program like WW but primal.
    a) weekly meetings for members to attend for support
    b) An online support component. Class program
    c) Meal plan generation
    d) classes to attend (cooking/how-to-shop/backyard chicken farming/vegetable & fruit gardening) -- some would require traveling to the farm via bus?
    e) pre-packaged frozen foods
    f) fresh/frozen foods available from local farmers
    g) fast food restaurant
    h) sit-in restaurant
    2) Exercise - start a franchise system using ideas from (movNat)
    a) Indoor room, with indoor rock climbing and other things needed for MovNat
    b) outdoor Arena
    c) Yoga/meditation center
    3) Studies & consultations
    a) I'd have someone like Chris Kresser and an MD and a Psychologist work full-time with patients, also a Chiro and Acupuncturist
    b) I'd have EVERYTHING documented. Everyone that starts the program would have full blood workups done, as well as questionnaire's filled out. This would be to get their first month free. Then we'd require a re-eval 3 months/6 months/ then every year there-after.
    c) Use profits to fund primal studies that can be done in prisons/any other long term care facility where food/exercise can be controlled.

    Personal trainer.
    Or professional piano player. Too bad I don't have that many years of experience.

    I Would do personal chef too, and although not very much used anymore, I always wanted to be a butler. But for someone cool, not a douchbag.

    I would like to be the cost accountant at a huge manufacturing company, maybe a conglomerate of some sort, where there's a ton of different items to cost. I thought that was everyone's dream job, though. Oh well, unrealistically, I would be in a bluegrass/gospel band because bluegrass rocks.

    I would be a mountain bike & trail running tour operator all summer and a XC ski trip guide all winter. Spring and Fall would be travel time where I would travel around the world visiting and writing about awesome places to mountain bike and ski.

    There are guys in prison who get paid 50 cents a day to work on trail crews. They live out in the wilderness and do trail maintenance. On my backpacking trip this weekend, I was joking that if I was in prison, I'd do whatever it took to get that job, then I would find a way to get back in prison when they let me out.

    I spent 6 months of my life hiking in the wilderness every day. It was an amazing and wonderful adventure, but after a while, it got to be a job. And I was a pretty mean boss. I learned that it's not good to take something you really really like and make it your job. I'm very happy with my job as a web developer. It's boring enough to walk away from at the end of the day and some day when I don't have to work anymore, I can just go hiking all the time again.

I don't know how realistic it is that this could support my current way of living (even just rent), but it's what I like doing.
    I was just starting to do this same thing right before I got offered a "real job". Some days I wish I hadn't taken it. I like that stuff a lot too and I could have set my own schedule, and wouldn't have had to move.

    My dream job would probably involve growing food part time in a sustainable techno-farm (aquaponics style), and splitting the rest of my work time between writing stories and inventing things.
    Today I will: Eat food, not poison. Plan for success, not settle for failure. Live my real life, not a virtual one. Move and grow, not sit and die.

    I'd draw comics again OR run a deli of some sort. Unfortunately, comic-wise, you can't find those jobs that pay up front. There are plenty of people with omg-great-ideas, and no money to start (although they'll be ever so kind to link to your website, and give you omgz-internet-fame, if you toil 60 hours/week to draw their omg-great-idea for them).
