At one of the schools I’m at, a financial advisor is coming in to speak to the kids. Why is it always about money? Those who make a lot of money are always the ones who come in to speak to students. What about that spark or passion? I know you can be happy as a financial advisor or other high-paying jobs, but kids should be exposed to all professions regardless of salary. Maybe some passionate writers, artists, poets, cooks, drivers, janitors, cashiers, dog walkers, etc. And not just best-sellers or top chefs, just genuine passionate humans doing what they love. We should be teaching kids to strive for a career they are confident, passionate, and in love with. Not to strive for something because it pays well.
My writing career isn’t making me money yet, and becoming a teacher definitely won’t. But I wouldn’t change my career path for the world because it’s two areas I was born to be a part of. 💙
Not one line, I know. It simply could not be said in one line. Haha. What is your experience with your career and your passion? If you have kids, what do they want to be when they grow up? Did you disagree? What else did you think? Comment below and let me know!
