      I would really love to go back to my 3 years old with all the knowledge I have now. I can’t imagine how fun this would be.

      More seriously, another career I would really have liked to try is the one of an entrepreneur. I love building teams, engaging concrete projects that hopefully help people. Who knows, I might try it in the future!

      And you, do you have ideas -even if they are not yet completely formalised- of the different careers you are interested in?

      I once did pottery and found I really enjoyed it. Perhaps I’d be a potter? Working with clay requires serenity and concentration. You also have to feel with your hands and play with the clay, and nothing ever comes out exactly as you imagined so there is always a big surprise when the pieces come out of the kiln.

      I love traveling, cooking and eating, so a non-statistical dream job would be to be a travel food blogger. I follow a woman on instagram who lives in Rome, spends summers in Tuscany, writes cookbooks and leads groups on four tours of Italy. That sounds like the DREAM.
