    I had high expectations of becoming a nuerosurgeon untill I was about 13. I still made it into the medical field however I am nothing near a nuerosurgeon.

    As a child, I loved the outdoors and wanted to become a Forrest Ranger. That didn't happen, as now I'm self-employed.  With what little free time I have, I still try to escape away to the outdoors!

    Being a child I never had a certain intention, sometimes I wanted to me a soldier, then a sportsman, then celebrity. I never identified my skill until I joined the field of online marketing.
