I was raised to believe in the straight and narrow. In other words, going to college, getting a full-time job with health insurance, and climbing the corporate ladder. Trouble is, after more than two years trapped inside a cubicle, my career in publishing was going nowhere and I was the unhappiest I’d ever been. I knew I needed to make a change, but had no idea what to do.
Over and over I heard the advice “Do what you love.” To me, it simply couldn’t be so easy. I loved to make people laugh, but how was I going to get paid to do that? After wasting even more time rotting away at my office job, I decided it was up to me to find out. I quit my job to pursue a career in television writing, and I am happier than I have ever been. And you can be too. Keep these tips in mind as you follow your bliss.
