I’ve developed a new pick up line.  No, no the kind that you use on the opposite sex, but the kind that makes for unique conversation.

I like to consider myself a #bridgebuilder and I’m always looking for ways to connect people and connect with people….so, I’ve come up with a new punch line….

If you could have any job, no specific skill required, what would it be?

Think about it.  Reputation aside, what would it be?

Personally, I’ve come up with a couple options:

  • I think it would be fun to work at a craft store fabric counter
  • I think it would be fun to be a barista – smelling coffee all day, making “the usual” for your usuals and I mean learning how to make pretty milk foam designs…
  • It would be fund to “do hair” at a “hair do shoppe” – yes, my store name would have 2 p’s and an e
  • And, don’t tell my dad, but I think there could be something to being a bartender at a local honkytonk – old men calling you babe….

There I said it.  I’ve always had listed that my dream job would be an event planner, more specifically a high end wedding planner.  I used to get to do the local, college-town version of that and loved every moment.  I love the creativity, the happy, the unique style that each event would bring.  But, I’m lost on the fact that, that job would have TONS of stress.  I love details and I love exceeding expectations.  I love making a day super smooth and easy for a bride, but all the personal weight of that process is pretty crazy.  So, I’d like to coordinate it, but I don’t think I could really handle doing it every day with my pocket book relying on it.

So, I’ll stick to the list above.  It would be great to have a job that didn’t rely on an email address and people hunting you down.  How fun would it be to just serve people; to talk to them, get to know them, and just serve them….

What about you…what would you do if a particular skill set, reputation or paycheck were not determining factors??!?!

Dream….I dare you!

Using this pick up line to talk to people gets much better answers than the usual – “what do you do”, “where are you from”, “how was your weekend.”

#bridgebuilder insider secret – people want to know that you really care about them!  But, it also gives you a chance to share your own quirky…and we all have some!
