My parents, wanted me to be a businessman. Well, my mom just wanted me to be happy, and therefore it was my dad that really pushed me to follow in his footsteps and go into business. I tried, but it just didn't fit. I ended up becoming a teacher (interestingly enough, following in my mom's footsteps) and a musician. As I am very much an introvert, my wife has always found these two "on stage" activities to be interesting choices.
