Already having tasted success, these high-fliers quit to follow a dream - The National
The article above relates to three women who have given up successful careers to start their own businesses to follow their dream. In all cases, finiacially at least, they were doling better in their old jobs. They seem very happy that they are doing what they want to do and in that sense it was all worth it. However, it does strike me that for the majority of people, if you want financial success, stick to what you are good at. I'd really love to be a professional golfer. It would be great to give up my job and follow my dream. The problem is - I'm crap at golf! ....so I don't think I'll be giving up my job just yet!
