What was it that you were “supposed” to become? What could you have been?

As I write this post, I remember a tune from a few years ago. So I say to Alexa, “Alexa, play Nick Drake’s ‘One of These Things First.’”Note: there may be ads before the song starts

Me? I could have been a musician as I had relative pitch but lacked the focus and grit to pursue that as a career. I could’ve been a fashion photographer with my BFA, but realized the dream included working with people I didn’t connect with, much less respect.

(There goes that expression, “Do what you love, and you’ll never work another day in your life.”)

But I finally discovered my place in the business world.

You know, my mother always thought I’d make a terrific attorney, given my nature. (Wait. What?) Somehow, I didn’t believe I had the grades to pursue that career, especially with my BFA in Photography.

Maybe that’s why I enjoy interviewing attorneys as much as I do.

What about you?
