Careers: Business/9-5 day job while pursuing passion
I'm 24 years old and quit my marketing job back in September of 2012 because I wanted to take some serious time off to pursue my passion. I've recently realized that acting or performing is something I want to pursue for the next 4~5 years. Many people tell me that I am talented (including teachers).
But now, I do need the income.
My question is, how do you think I should leverage my marketing/business experience to find a 9-to-5 job while still pursuing my passion?
My background is in business but since I am not getting any job interviews, it might be a better idea to apply as a receptionist somewhere or even work at a restaurant for $10,000 ~ $20,000 less pay during the day, and just pursue my passion at night.
I guess I'm just scared .. I was once working for legitimate companies and had great potential to move up in those companies but ever since I started thinking about my passion more seriously, there's no way I can juggle 50,60 hour/week jobs and still have free time in the evenings to pursue what I love. So I guess I will have to give up all that and apply for lot less important jobs at offices or even waiter jobs, but it's just been scary for me. And it's been hard to find that regular 9-to-5 job.
Thank you in advance
I understand your situation.
If you have passion in some subjects, say, acting / singing etc.
IT means you have the aptitude/ also your attitude is also leaning towards it.
MY SUGGESTION, PICK UP JOBS LIKE
EVEN WEEK END JOBS TO MAKE UP THE SALARY.
THEN YOU CAN PURSUE YOUR PASSION AND MAKE A LIVING OUT OF IT.
SOME SACRIFICE IS REQUIRED.
