So you're leaning towards game warden, but possibly not as a life long career - and that you were thinking of majoring in biology with a minor in business, (by the way, many a college student has switched majors and minors while in school), and you have thoughts of owning your own business in the future... Your parents are right. Mind you, many parents have been down this road with our children.
Which brings me to, not everyone has or will make career changes along the way, and although there is nothing wrong with that, I am a guy who knew what he wanted to do before he left high school.
In 1982 I enlisted into the U.S. Navy. In November 2008, I retired at the rate of Master Chief Petty Officer. I should include I've always been the gung-ho adventurous type so I went into the Naval Special Warefare department. But I didn't serve on the big ships, I was in what the Navy refers to as Naval Special Warfare Boat Team, or for slang, the "brown water navy".
Now as one might imagine, during my 26 year career, I found myself in harms way on four seperate occasions (Grenada: Operation Urgent Fury, Panama: Operation Just Cause, Iraq: Desert Shield / Desert Storm, and Iraq: Operation Iraqi Freedom) but that was what I trained for. I began with Swimmer Delivery Vehicle Teams (SDVT), which were later redesignated SEAL Delivery Vehicle Teams. From there I was apart of the birth of (SWCC) Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewman. Our job is to insert and extract U.S. Navy SEAL Teams (and sometimes Army Special Forces) while on combat missions. Anyway, the point being, I would not trade one moment of my naval career, nor do I have any regrets. I only wish I could have stayed active until my last breath of life.
Here's a U.S. Navy video clip (on YouTube) as to what we're (SWCC) is all about.

As a matter of fact, the Navy chose my men and my training department at Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek, Virginia to shoot their recruiting video.
So now I am finally making my first career change (if you will) into retirement. I plan to do a lot of salt water fly fishing once I relocate to my new home in Florida. Mind you I bought my first new boat too! I realize the military is not for everyone but it was for me. So with that said, I wish you the best of luck in whatever endeavors or career paths you choose.
All the best,
