Dream job

This is what I would really like to be able to do. Mr. Wild and I have a working background in the same field. I wish that we could job share the same job, one that would have benefits and the whole package, but we would each only work 20 hours a week. Then we could both get the chance to stay home doing things in our community, spending time with our kids and doing field trips and school activities, and both get the chance to do some work in our field and feel like we're keeping our skills fresh and up-to-date. Problem is, I don't think our field is forward thinking enough to allow that.

We'd make a great team for a position. He has skills in areas that I'm maybe a bit weak in and vice versa. Some place would benefit from both of our expertises. Together, I think, we create a whole package.

Oh, well. Hopefully, I'll just keep the job I have. I'm in one of those fields that is considered non-essential.

I'm in the hunt for my dream job, alas, it probably doesn't involve what I am trained to do!

And I have always found it very disturbing that the business world has no trouble calling a position 'non-essential' yet they need PEOPLE to fill them. Grrr.

From the picture, it looks like you have a future if you want to sell your purses,(per the pic. I'm assuming that's what you like)

I'd start at local art fairs and go from there. I've done this, and it's been good.
