    Basically wondering what you would be doing instead of working in or pursuing IT jobs/careers?

    I had the grades and such to be a doctor. Definitely didn't have the commitment to it though.

    After recently seeing how much money estate agents make, everyone should be one of them!

    As I was a Croupier before making the switch, I'd probably still be doing that in some capacity.

    Do you mean if I could do anything? I'd travel the world if I could do what ever I please. Property developer if not IT. Got a massive portfolio of my own plus 1 house rented out at the moment, not quite the mogul I aspire to be.... yet!
