I would be a professional fundraiser for great causes. Most of my community-based servant leadership is in that area. Nothing is better than handing a big check over to a deserving organization. And, as a middle child, I’m good at directly asking for what I want.

What do you think?

Do you want to add to the conversation? Please share!

I’d say politics, but I’m already in politics (Medicine). So I’d likely be a cocktail bar owner and/or co-owner of a cat sanctuary with @chadruba

Foster or adopt a bunch of kids!

A friend in technology runs #FunArtNotFineArt workshops on weekends. I’d love to do that. My 2nd job would give me & those attending the workshops the safe space to bring child-like joy in expression/colour, beauty with a touch of the ridiculous, into busy, structured lives.
