The ideal apprenticeship job depends on the person, and what trade they would like to learn. For me, the ideal apprenticeship job would be to work for a person who successfully owns and manages numerous Airbnb homes, as that is the career path I have chosen to best suit me. My reasoning is that I want to be free to travel here and there without worrying about missing too many days of work. If I were to own Airbnbs, I could manage them from afar, and therefore travel to any country without fear of losing money.
As I said earlier, the ideal apprenticeship job rests in the eye of the beholder, but that does not mean that there cannot be an apprenticeship job that many might like to take. According to Dr. North, that apprenticeship job would be under a successful businessman, running any business. Not to learn the trade, but to learn how to advertise, how to manage employees, how to hire and fire people, and all the other skills required for business. This way, you can start up a business in any marketable trade because you already have the skills you need to be able to run that business. Of course, there may be aspects specific to your trade that will not be taught to someone doing a different trade. For example, if I were to study under the owner of a salad dressing company, I will not learn the best way to set up a living room in order to fit the most people, something I will need to know if I own an Airbnb. But those little extra specifics can be learned on the vast expanse of knowledge known as the internet. If you do not find that you are not able to learn what is required on the internet, learning under a businessman of a specific trade in order to learn that trade is still an option. It is never too late to learn.
While the ideal apprenticeship job depends on what the person wants to do for a living, if you are unsure, you can study under any successful businessman, learning the ways of running your own business. This can then be implemented in your own business once you decide what you would like to sell. Even if you decide not to start a business right now, you learn the skills of starting and managing a business in case you decide to start one of your own someday. It is a win-win.
