Looking for a job. Hopefully my dream job. Doesn't have to pay millions as long as I'm happy doing it and it pays the bills and allows for a few shows a year. Any suggestions?

My grandfather literally did work for the mob back in the 30s and 40s. Wasnt a made man himself, but did "jobs" for them. Nothing violent, it was associated with politics. Like counting pot holes. LOL.

Risk management. How boring does that sound? Its embarassing. LOL. Actually I dont get embarassed about anything really, drives me wife and kids nuts. Guess after dancing crazy at 100s of shows that there is nothing I can do to top that. LOL.

My passion though is skiing. Was a pro back in the 80s, back not enough money. Trying to monetize it again now that its so big and all the X games has become so popular. I thought about it back then and but was just too far ahead of our time. Back then there was only 50 people in the whole country skiing crazy shit and doing tricks. And no one cared.

It was a fringe sport. Climbing mountains and skiing down them. Today its very popular. My old joke is that me and my climbing partner always dreamed of coming across "babes in the backcountry". Needless to say it never happened.

Today, there is actually a website called babes in the backcountry. Man how times change.

I wodnt recommend social work. People love to tell you how rewarding it is. It's real easy to say that when its not your paycheck involved.

I have found myself rather eclectically employed. Work 3 very different jobs. By morning I'm a barista, by afternoon I'm an office administrator and on days off I'm a maid. On the side I do quality control for my favorite dispensary
