How do you know it's time for a career change? Well, sometimes it's obvious. If you're working as a car salesman and you can't help but break into show tunes (and maybe a tap dance) every time you make a sale, maybe you ought to think about getting into theater. Likewise, if your pastries are the reason your office even has a break, maybe it's time to think about attending one of the top culinary schools. Seriously! When the thought of change, especially career change, first entertains our thoughts, it's easy to brush them aside. Who doesn't have dreams, right? But hey, this is the real world and you can't just quit your job so you can make fluffy pastries for a living. Or can you?
Let's say you really can't afford to quit your job, but the more you think about a culinary education, the more you begin to salivate. Don't give up just yet. Some culinary schools offer entire programs (full-time!) in the evenings. In about nine months you can either, a) start a family; or b) start a new career. Will it be easy? Probably not. But the best things in life are never easy. Nine months isn't a long time and it could be all you need to redirect your entire future.
