    Default What should I be when I grow up? :P

    So, as the title suggests I've never really decided what I should I be 'when I grow up'! I currently work in a training/admin type role, and whilst I don't mind the work, and my employer is very flexible (which is great while bub is young/while expanding our family), I'm just not fulfilled by my 'career'.

    Can anyone suggest me a career based on the following list of likes & dislikes:

    Likes:
    - working with children
    - helping others
    - teaching / training
    - flexible work
    - being able to get outdoors once in a while
    - I don't mind doing more study to get into a new field (currentky have cert IV TAE & Dip of Management)

    Dislikes:
    - I don't really have the funds to complete a degree
    - I'm not good with bodily fluids (changing nappies - for other people's kids)

    Any suggestions, no matter how weird or whacky, are welcome

    TIA

    Thanks Marigold! I have thought about youth work, but never really looked into it. I love the idea of it, but am unsure if I'd be able to seperate myself from the kid's problems at the end of the day... Worth looking into more though
