The Money Will Come Later…Right? The Struggle Of Choosing A Career You Love Over One That Makes Big Bucks

- By


I’ve always known that I wanted to be a journalist since I was a kid.  What my pigtail wearing, notebook-carrying younger self didn’t know was how low starting salaries were in the field. Being a paid, professional writer is the career I’ve always wanted, but I didn’t pursue it for a while because of financial worries. For a while I chose a more lucrative career in corporate America and neglected my writing aspirations, but I was miserable. I soon realized that no amount of money could compensate for a job that I hated.
