This weekend I attended the wedding of a lawyer turned video games producer and an organic chemist turned pastry chef turned food writer.
I’m married to a police officer who has just recently turned his attention to starting his own business and to full-time architecture study.
My father-in-law was a forestry worker until his 30s when he decided to become a doctor.
My newest business partner in our real estate agency started her working life in hairdressing.
Speaking of hairdressers, one of my closest friends now also owns a commercial real estate agency and started in hairdressing.
And another close friend, who I blogged about recently, started as a hairdresser only to successfully open two salons, become a real estate investor and is now launching into a styling business.

I’m surrounded by examples of people that bucked their “everyday” and shot for their dreams. I’m sure you are too if you just ask around.
What’s your dream?
And before I forget – congratulations to pharmacist turned travel writer Ben on his recent wedding (he met his wife while he was setting out achieving his dreams).
