So I am heavily considering leaving my career in the health industry. I really want to work in the entertainment industry. I started self teaching my self drawing and novel writing. The reason for the change is about just enjoying life and having fun with my work. I am an INFP, myers briggs, and really want to use creativity to express myself and find things I am passionate about. I'm very much an introvert but when there is something I'm passionate about I am all out for it. I don't care about making lots of money. My transition will take about 5 years or so to accomplish. I am like 42 and just can't wait any longer to make this adjustment in my life. My family seems OK with it just as long as I keep working and I can take care of our budget. So far everything seems like I can manage just fine but I would like some more advice on this. I just want to get some advice or views on what ever comes to your mind.
These types of questions are some things I wonder about.
Have you ever changed careers? What did you learn through the process? If you had to do it over again where would you start or do over? Who would you ask if you where serious about changing careers? What are the ups or downs?
Kind Regards to all
