Alright we all know how this works now. Brian over at Cool and Collected hands out an assignment and cool blogs answer it. Check out this week’s assignment.
If money was not a concern and you could choose any career path, what would be your ultimate dream job?
Easy. And I dream about this every day. I want Team Hellions to be a franchise.
I don’t know how it will start but I know where I want it to go. Maybe I get a job and the money starts to pile up enough to invest something. Maybe I come into money. Maybe that business opportunity presents itself on a silver platter. I don’t know how it will happen, but two chapters aside I know where it will be.
Team Hellions LLC.
A larger more encompassing and constantly updated site receiving millions of hits a day. All the news you want from comics, wrestling, MMA, toys, video games, cartoons, and any other somewhat geeky topic I can think of. Provided by a staff of paid writers. All of this will be done in house. Well, in store…
The Team Hellions store. Selling comics, wrestling, and MMA gear. Game room and tournaments. Constant events to bring in customers. Oh look a new comic book based movie is coming out, we’ll be at the movie theater with a table set up handing out free comics. Local ads during Raw, the Walking Dead, Big Bang Theory. Plus a large outreach program to the local military base. Your soldier husband or wife has to go overseas? Lets work out a plan to send the comics over there. Customer. Loyalty. Don’t worry about not being near this store. We’ll reach beyond the city limits because…
Team Hellions studios. Podcasts, YouTube videos and I have a crazy idea for wrestling shows too. We’ll record weekly shows with guests. Like Comic Book Men? Tough, we’ll be better. I want to have the Ace of Cakes of comic book store shows.
Then after all of this is done we, Team Hellions, will walk into a convention and talent raid from other companies. Alright, we wont really do that but I have a great image of walking into a Newsarama or CBR panel and handing one of their writers a Team Hellions shirt, only for him/her to dramatically put it on nWo style.
But, this crazy world aside there is only one thing I really want to do. I want to do this, this right here, but get paid for it. I know what I make in a week, and there’s not a doubt in my mind I could find a writing job that makes equal that. An entry level writing job that would probably make equal to more. Hell an internship would be stronger than my “day” job. I’ll work 8, 10, 12, 14 hours a day or more writing my fool head off. We’re all blogging because there is a voice inside all of us that has to come out. If life becomes too crazy and the writing doesn’t happen the ache sets in. The pain of not writing becomes too strong and the only outlet is to set fingers to keyboard.
Like many other League members, I’m at my Dream Job. But no one is paying me for it.
Speaking of the rest of the League….. here are their answers!
