Probably a firefighter...that's what I was pursing immediately before I got into sales. But at the time it was just after the 2008 recession ended, and government entities were all experiencing cutbacks and layoffs...and this not hiring anyone new. Had to pivot.ย

Those firefighting jobs are so hard to come by now, at least near me. Definitely a good option though, especially with the x days on x days off.

My previous job, but with no sales.ย 

If money was no object, finishing my PhD in History (Religious minorities of exceptional cohesion, and definitely something about Alexander and ptsd) and writing for academic journals.ย
