I recently had a conversation with an old friend of mine. There were some awesome things about his job. He loved the day to day, hands on field work.
He didn’t love the office politics, lack of career growth, etc.
I asked him: “how can you make 500k / year in your field?”
What do you think. Is that a valid question? Is that a valid goal for everyone?
My intention was to inspire thought beyond the traditional career path in his field. Not to imply his field or career was bad/wrong.
Can you earn 500k a year using the skills and passions you have? Are you stuck at 35k/year? 100k/year?
Do you need to earn more to feel fulfilled?
