If only working at what you’re passionate at paid the bills! Most people are working 9–5pm jobs to pay mortgages, bills & support their families. I’m sure they would rather be earning money doing something they’re more passionate about. However ‘exciting’ jobs in creative fields are few & far between & if you don’t have any experience you can forget it. The job market is very competitive even if you ARE very experienced.
My passion is writing but I can’t earn a full time living from it, like most people I still need to keep my day job. Maybe one day when I hit the big time & become the next J.K. Rowling & get a movie deal I can give up the day job! :-))
