    What would be your dream job?

    Primal Fuel
    If you could do anything you wanted, what would you do?

    I would have a small teaching farm, where I could have classes and teach children and adults about sustainable agriculture and ranching.

    I would run a home-run tech support business offering all kinds of day to day maintenance and configuration services (spyware/viruses, new PC setup & data transfer, "tune-ups", hardware repair, consultations etc.). I already kind of started one, but I haven't been advertising and I'm very nervous about asking people for payment without feeling bad even though my services are much cheaper than any other place you could get the same thing around here. 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'd get paid to fish in my kayak off the coast of south florida... and eat all the yummy fishes.

    Or writer... or hell, both?

    Who's gonna fund this venture!

    Never undervalue your time and talent! People will pay you to do things they can't do themselves. Never mind the people who say "I can do that myself for free/cheap"...they are not your target market Sell solutions, not services. People turn to experts/consultants when they need problems solved.

    Wonder- one of the things I got out of the business class I took was that if you have a skill to offer, you have a right to be compensated for it. I, personally, am positively technologically impaired. Therefore, I would need your services. In return for your time and effort, you should get something from me. Maybe money, maybe gardening help

    I'm thinking a teaching ranch/farm might be interesting. However, at the moment what I want is a self-sustained/contained farm where I can be a hermit for a while. Once I'm ready to deal with people again, I'm very interested in healing land and learning/teaching how to use what wants to grow here to nourish/heal ourselves.

    Writer or
    Personal chef/ restauranteur using local/ organic/ both and Primal ingredients, with the option of fresh pasta, etc for those who want it added on. Restaurant would be called Science! With Food!, opened with a close friend and a couple of compatriots, and, knowing this area, popular overnight.
