If you’re like the majority of people, you can’t WAIT to get out of work. Maybe the tediousness of what you do day in and day out makes you dread heading in to work. How can you be your best self if you’re constantly stressing about your job? Your productivity when your there is affected as well.
There are quite a few personality profiles and tests available online, if you don’t know where your talents and passions can merge to make you a living. If you find you don’t have the training to get into the field that it turns out you want to get into, don’t give up. There are always options, from Federal student loans (how I was able to get my MBA), grants, bank loans, etc. If you do a search online there may even be financing options from the school you choose.
After I finished my undergrad degree I kept trying to get into an office job, but the only thing I could find that I was any good at was working retail. I absolutely loved meeting and helping people, but I hated being on my feet all day on the cement floors, the low pay, and the crazy hours. I thought my girl’s father had saved me when he wanted me to be a SAHM as I had wanted when I was a little girl.
Since I loved helping people, when it became clear that the marriage between my girl’s father and I was probably not going to make it, I decided to go for an MBA in HR (human resources). That way I wouldn’t have to go back to retail if and when it was done.
Many of my classmates were either planning on or were already running their own company. That put the kernel of the idea in my mind. Then I found ways of running a business that didn’t deal with having a physical property and inventory.
I’m not saying it’s easy to get started, and it doesn’t take time. But if you’re doing something that you’re passionate about it hardly seems like work at all. The world needs more people who are passionately alive….the money WILL come.
