Hi Roger D. Mucci , I was a pre-med student and researched and studied advanced cellular pathology. I would be an Oncologist. For reasons I won't get into, I didn't finish my studies but it remains one of my biggest regrets in life.

I would love to do missionary work either in the Dominican Republic or even here in the U.S.  I have been on mission trips in the Dominican Republic and I love it there.  They lead such a simple life compared to us.  In actuality, they actually have more than we do because they have less.  I enjoyed working with Children in an orphanage over there and would do it because it is rewarding in a better way besides money.

Before I got into real estate, I was a symphony orchestra musician and theater orchestra conductor. That's about as different from selling homes as you can get. It would be fun to get back into the music profession in some way, but I doubt that will happen. Music is an exciting and rewarding profession, but it can sometimes be a mediocre way to make a living.

Although I love Barbara Todaro and her answer, it does have a certain risk factor I'm not so sure would be a wise long-term strategy.

Maybe I could be a young Roger Mucci - a professional bon vivant who went to New York and then returned to Ohio to assume a life of losing at games of rummy, selling sofas and enlightening so many with his tales of absolutely nothing.

Or perhaps I could be a late night talk show host -- it seems there are quite a few newbies on air or coming on the scene, why not one more?  And why not me?

The possibilities may be endless but my time to waste is finite....bye for now.

I am so grateful that so many of you are considering creative outlets for yourselves, while others are saving the planet or animals.  If we all wanted the same thing, living here would be boring.  It's the passion about something that sets the fire and keeps it burning.  One simply MUST express the highest good, lest we fail to grow and understand why we came to the planet.

@ William Johnson - You even LOOK like an oncologist!  LOL  Perhaps there is still room in your life to add value in this way to mankind.

As for me - Let's seeeee.... Things I've already done in life:
  -  Sang opera and other classical music
  -  Played a number of instruments
  -  Performed in roles in historical film documentaries here in the US
  -  Represent various historical eras in historical costume (still do this)
All these are the "creative" outlets that make life enjoyable.  I do this in addition to the real estate.

As to income producing ventures:
  -  Banking (eeeelch!)
  -  Mortgage banking (more interesting)
  -  Technology (I.T. - loved it.)
  -  Marketing (Loved this even more)
  -  Real Estate, in various types of positions.

In the end, I realize my need for high personal interaction with humans.  I am one that cannot get stuck at home for long periods of time - I get cabin fever.  I have high energy and need an outlet to allow my froth to bubble over and bring happiness to many. (I'm winking here.)

That said, I've decided that with my "spoils of war" from my commissions, I am going to purchase or build a B&B/Inn.  Just think:  It'll be like a perpetual weekend Open House with people coming to visit from all over, enjoying a historical mansion.  My real estate would come into play, as would my mortgage banking experience, certainly marketing. even historical attire!  Please pray for me or hold my wish in thought so it manifests more quickly.  Then you can come and stay with us!!!

My husband and I are really looking forward to the next chapter in our lives where our talents can be more fully expressed.  I wish the same for you.  May you too, have "expanded territory" and realize your potential. 

All the very best from the Green Northwest,

I would teach about the question we ask ourselves, "Who do you think you are?"....and the hypothesis that "love/success is not a victory march....but a broken hallelujah."

and the essential origin of the root that brings the courage to that carries one from "who" to "broken" and the simplicity of the life that resides there.

I've been the teacher, the photojournalist for AP and even an amateur novelist but I would trade all that in to be a full time mother and devoted wife to my husband. Women take that for granted everyday and complain about being a stay home wife or hate their husbands for some stupid reason. Don't do it because someone told you had to do it..... Do it because you love that person. Well, working 50+ hours a week and not having anything to show for it when I come home to an empty house can be quite depressing sometimes too. It's just stuff! I admired my grandmother raising me. Losing my own mother at the tender age of  5 made growing up unbearable sometimes, but the unconditional love from my grandmother/grandfather made my passion for life much more enjoyable. And I show that love everyday in real estate. Helping people. The clients that you keep in touch with can sometimes turn into honorary family. It's quite rewarding!

Car or vehicle restorations, thats how I got into this business 25+ years ago working on a clients car. homes are a lot easier to fix up than a vehicle. chemicals for painting cars are also very toxic, homes cost more, longer term, greater risk but also greater return ROI.

I'd be an archeologist. I've seen them at work when we spent a couple mos. in the Bahamas last Summer. They were looking for old Indian artifacts on the island of San Salvador. It looked like a very interesting job!

I owned a Travel Agency before the internet and people wanting to handle their own arrangements.  It was the best.  I had great clients and loved helping find the best vacation for them.  Now I try to find the best house for them.  It was easier to find them the best location.

I was a Registered Nurse and spent the majority of my career as an Obstetric Nurse.  I delivered lots of babies and it was a passion for a lot of years.   Real Estate has been my passion now for 11 years.  My dream job would involve being a travel critic or a personal shopper.  Not sure how I would get paid, but, hey....I'm dreaming, right?

If I had it to do over again with what I know today I would go to law school and become an Real Estate Attorney.  Lots of money for consulting and up front retainers.  I love the idea of actually getting paid for what I do all the time.

Well Roger, your question is pretty timely. As a matter of fact I'm about to jump into the wicked, wild and wet World of CAR WASH ownership. I'll be attending the annual Car Wasn Show in Las Vegas next week for 4 days where I'm hoping to get a little learnin in. 

A very old high school friend just bought a National Car Wash Franchise and is planning to add a couple thousand more locations Nationwide. It's an exiting and new concept and I've been looking for a way to generate passive income so here I go jumping into a brand new career at 69. 

Oh well, Warren Buffet's in his 80's and still rockin and rollin. Not to mention T Boone Pickins who didn't make his first billion till he was in his 80's. Then there was the Colonal who became a billionaire in his 90's and clucked all the way to the bank.

Besides that with 5 kids and 14 Grandkids who in the Hell can ever afford to retire. LOL!! Great Question!
