One (or both!) of two. Game/hobby store operator/owner or game creator. I'm a nerd. ?

I did the first (first as an operator, later owner/operator), and loved it. I gave it up for my ex. Big mistake. I would love to someday do it again.

The second, I'm working on. I have a game that has been in development for a while, and is going well, but the money gets in the way of publishing it. But I keep chipping at it where I can, and again, maybe someday.

I'd love to be an actor but frankly I like eating and having a roof over my head and there are far too many actors who are starving

Creating props, costumes, etc for film, TV, or stage.

I think the idea of a career is inherently tied to money, or more basically survival. The idea that you have to pick one thing to do and do it for your entire life is rooted in the equivalency of wealth and success. Career changes happen either because you picked wrong or because you have failed to find success.
I consider myself a jack-of-all/master-of-none. I find that this doesn’t conform to society’s standards of career-mindedness. If money wasn’t a concern, my “career” would be traveling seeking out great craftsmen (and women of course), thinkers, artists, creators, leaders, and innovators, just absorbing. I would learn languages and immerse myself in different cultures. I would learn as much as I could, teach as much as possible, create when inspired, and help when able.
I think maybe Gene Roddenberry ruined me...

I have answered a post like this before and I said it would be writing book jackets but I think I would also enjoy doing landscape and nature photography .. I have no experience with photography, it just seems like a pretty stress-free job, being outside and traveling, plus I love those types of pictures

The one I have and money has never been an issue.... if I accumulate one buck then I will want two, if I get two then... get the idea? So, enjoy the ride and don't worry about money. If you like what you do then you are very lucky

Helping elephants for just a roof over my head and food in my belly but it's my health that's the issue.

Fortunately for me ... the one I already have (software architect / developer). Just don't see how to improve on it in any real-world way. I'd have to be paid large sums per year for doing nothing in order to top it, really, and then it would be less interesting so I'm not sure that's a good trade-off.

Nothing. I define success as not working, and I want to live like a king

If money wasn’t an issue, I don’t think I’d chose to have any kind of career. Feeling like I’m compelled to do a thing can take some joy out of it. I wouldn’t want to ruin the things I enjoy doing by making money doing them. I suppose if I was an abstract artist of sorts, making whatever I feel like and selling them for ridiculous monies... that could still be fun. No commissions though.

Retired, career is irrelevant if I am retired. But many will have a career in mind as an answer.
