    I would still want to be an accountant, that is my current goal I am pursuing, and I would still pursue it if money were no object.

    I’d like to make stained glass pieces for a living, but alas it can only be a cool hobby for me 🙂

    Buy a better camera, an assortment of lenses, start travelling the world as a photographer. 🙂 I like what I do, but it’s retail. There’s only so many places I can go, though I’m hoping that access to better benefits helps me pursue something more serious in the future. Even in management, I want something more.

    Perhaps if money were no object, I’d go to college and learn about finances. I’m learning through google right now, but so far I really enjoy managing my finances and have progressed to wanting to help others (namely my mother who could benefit from organization in her finances).

    I’d be a writer. Novels. The dream, as I always say furtively to my workmates.

    Something with animals. Horse trainer, wild life photographer, zoologist, etc.

    Typically jobs working with animals don’t make much money. Being a zoologist would bring in good money but you pretty much need a PhD and it takes a butt load of money to get to that level. I would love to be a wild life photographer and travel the world taking pictures of animals in their environment.

    Something with doggies. Or nothing at all and just travel.

    I’d still want to be in my field of work – molecular-microbiology/public health/environmental health.

    I am working a non-career job while in grad school. I will never make a lot of money in my chosen field, and I’m okay with that.

    I am a dance teacher, and that’s what I’ve wanted to be since I was 9 years old. Granted, I went to University to be an editor, but I never wanted that and just did it because my dad thought being a dance teacher was a pipe dream and I’d never make money at it. Well…here I am…making money at it!

    I marked that I love my job, and I do! But I guess if I could choose anything (aka not a different job), then I would choose travel. To be honest, I’d probably still edit on the side, though.

    It depends how much money… if my mortgage was paid off tomorrow and someone gave me £100,000 in the bank, I would pursue charity work… low paid employment, but what I really want to do anyway.

    But if I won Euromillions, I would buy a mansion, set up an animal sanctuary inside, and then set up my own charity (probably an indigenous rights charity) once I got settled.

    If money was not a concern I would be a teacher.
