What did you want to be when you were a kid?

I was hoping to be an NFL Quarterback, but was immediately put on the offensive line during my first season of tackle football. Needless to say, that dream didn't last๐Ÿคฃ

As a kid, I wanted to be a historian or do something super academic. In my mid-twenties, I realized that in my home country (France), academia was a dead-end while there is a shortage of salespeople ... so here I am!
