Im thinking about job satisfaction but a huge pay drop
Im thinking about making a move into personal training. Im a male, 29yrs old and currently train a few colleagues and friends a few times a week (no charge) and they (and I) love it. Ive always been into bodybuilding and fitness and am very serious about improving myself and love helping others become stronger and healthier.
The problem is moving into this industry fulltime would entail a massive paydrop, I earn over 350k a year in my current job but work 12-13hr days, 5 days a week, only 2.5weeks vacation per year, hate the office environment, has a genuis of a boss who is constantly grinding me down, would much rather live free in a gym.
Another option is to stick it out a few more years, save more money to the point where im comfortable doing whatever I want or I have enough savings to make a bigger mark in the fitness industry like opening an gym.
I guess in the bigger picture, my own needs might seem completely petty to those who have fitness as a fulltime dedicated career but think the paydrop/lifestyle change makes it alot more of a tougher decision.
