Will you encourage your children to follow in your footsteps?
Do you want your kids to have the same career that you chose or do you want them to stand clear of it?
i wouldn't mind my son taking over my business when he gets older but i definestly want him to take different steps to get to where i am today.
No, I want them to follow their own path in life and be happy with what they choose to do. What I would encourage them to have is tenacity, follow-through, patience, and character as they follow their own path and accomplish their desires.
If they want to follow in my footsteps then I will certainly wholeheartedly support and encourage it -- my career allows for all kinds of creative expression and can be extremely lucrative with the right expertise. That said, I'm not going to be standing over them and insisting on it either. Not everyone can like or do my job, and my kids may end up having a completely different set of skills and interests.
