What If…

Last week I attended a Women's Business Lunch at the Frederick Chamber of Commerce. It was wonderful to be in a room full (as in jam-packed full!) of strong, intelligent business women of varying ages, backgrounds and professions! The meeting format was pretty informal, where each attendee got a chance to "Beg, Brag or What If". (I, of course, bragged about Kalico's new office location...i know, i know, I still have to do a post on that and get some photos out!)

But, it was one women's "What If" question that struck me. She posed the question "What if you didn't have to worry about getting paid, and could do any profession you wanted, what would it be?" So…what would it be? At our luncheon, we actually went around the table and everyone got to give their answer. It was great, some of my favorite answers included:
  • Adventure Travel Agent
  • Interior Designer/Decorator
  • Starting abusiness pairing animals with disabled children
  • Opening up a shop selling their own homemade jams and jellies
  • Painter
  • Rock Star
  • And many other great answers!

My answer? I'd be… wait for it… a graphic designer! Honestly, I really love what I do! But, it would be cool to be a graphic designer without any deadlines! LOL! Or, my second choice, maybe to be a writer or blogger, that way I could experience a variety of adventures and activities and share them with everyone!

So, what would your "What If…" answer be? I'd love to hear them, it'll be very inspirational! Please leave your comments below!
