Alternate Careers sou’s career journal

If we do a little soul searching, most of us can discover that we have the potential to pursue an alternate career as well.
Outside of my HR profession, I am a hobbyist musician. Even though making music is a hobby now, someday I intend to make a career out of it. One of my friends works in a leadership position in an organization, but she is also a fitness instructor outside of her day job. Another friend of mine makes a living by being a programmer at an IT firm, and he is a hobbyist culinary instructor/cook outside of his work.
No job is secure these days and hence knowing that there is a scope for an alternate career always helps and makes us think in that direction. All it takes is some retrospection and self-awareness from our part.
So, what is it that you do for a living and what is/are your alternate career options?
