I was talking to a friend yesterday about how our lives have worked out. He told me that he took the job he's in because it paid better than what he wanted to do originally. He had no regrets. He has a wife and several children. Money was important.

I told him that I was extremely fortunate. I love my job. It didn't require any college. And I've lasted in this business for 37 years.

What about you? Are you doing what you like?
