Would you be President of the United States? A Fortune 500 CEO? An entrepreneur? General Manager of a baseball team?

What would it be and why?

Great question.

My dream job would involve golf, which is my career now, but it would be on a higher level.

Obviously, I'd love to be on the PGA Tour, but if I wasn't out there I'd like to be a golf course designer. I think it'd be fascinating to watch a golf course built from scratch.

Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court

You get a job for life and a chance to influence the ways the laws in this country are developed. Plus, you live relatively free from the circus and spotlight that surrounds most political jobs and can actually have a life off the bench (Justice Thomas goes out in an RV during the summer, stopping at random campsites and just blending in with people. He's, apparently, rarely recognized.).

That'd be my dream job.

PGA tour is an obvious answer for me. Only problem is I am about as far away from that as I can get. Playing for the Reds would be a close second.

Assuming money isn't an object, I'd be a high school football coach. I've always been a bigger fan of the high school game than any other level.

I don't want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don't want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don't want to do that.

I actually would love to be an imagineer but don't have the talent.

Truly dream jobs because I haven't .001% of the talent necessary to do either of those things.

I've been writing music for years. Getting paid for it would be nice.

I love what I'm doing right now, but eventually I want to grow my company so others are doing the driving part and I'm just booking the freight and occasionally going out on the road just when I feel like it.

For many years I wrote about economics/investment themes.
Romantically, I could go back to that, until I remember the exasperation of not having a good topic to write about with the deadline looming.

No job's perfect. I'll keep my current one.

Dream job, eh?

I'd like to be the #4 pitcher in the Cincinnati Reds starting rotation...and I'd like to pitch like Bob Gibson's 1968 season...yeaH! 34 starts, 28 complete games, 13 shutouts! Put that behind Harang, Volquez, and Arroyo. Reds World Series Championship!

After I retire from pitching, I'd want Ty Pennington's job. Travelling the country helping people who need help...you gotta love that! :thumbup:

My dream job?

I'd start out working the night shift as a security guard. My job would be boring and there would be nothing to do, so I'd write books because I am a really smart guy. What I write is extremely revolutionary and many people begin believing my ideas. Eventually, I am so well regarded I get hired by the best franchise in sports, but I continue to put out crap and make a ton of money... ;)

When I was younger it was to be a professional ballplayer...or the 6th Beatle.

Now that I am older? stand-up comedian or Walmart greeter.
