I think it's very romantic to belive that money will come to you if you follow your heart alone...
Romance, my ass. Life's too short to spend eight hours a day doing something you abhor.
Ooh well done!!
I agree money is a necessity in life but Im b*ggered if Im gona do a cr*p job for 40 years then get a gold watch at the end of it.
Im currently doing half and half.
Im doing a cr*p job but its bringing in money while i work on doing my own thing which may one day bring in a wage.
I think peoples situations obviously effect jobs/skills.
I have very little to pay out for, no mortgage, no kids so I can arse about doing my own thing(can I point out I dont waste money)
But if you have finacial commitments I guess its harder to 'live the dream'.
