It's not necessarily my career choice but 

I always wanted to be a flight attendant, do some traveling nd just live on the go (I know its not all glamorous but Its something I wanted to do) and I got a job once when I was in my very early 20's but declined it. smdh

Yup. I was at a company that didn't appreciate me and I got a job offer from another well-known company that would have provided a better opportunity to run the entire department.  I had turned it that down and stayed with the company.  First major mistake.
 
Well i didn't learn from that major mistake and had turned down another well-known company in  Southeast Florida.   I turned it down because of my family.  Another big mistake.
 
I'm done with these types of silly mistakes.  I just hope that I get a similar or better opportunity in the near future.  This time I won't turn it down.

No regrettable mistakes. I probably should've went back to school a lot sooner. I continuously found myself being the smartest person in the room, yet the lowest on the totem pole. I got tired of people that had seemingly less intelligence than me being in charge.
