I am itching to move to Maine and start a nice, quiet, beautiful life. I don't plan on building a family ANY time soon, if ever, so I wasn't exactly sure where to post this topic. I want to own my own business, and I figure it is an "investment" in my "future" so there you go.
I want to move to Maine, near the coast. I am a musician and painter, and I figure I want to own my own business selling my art and performing in the communities surrounding where I live, depending on whether or not they have coffee shops I guess. I understand that it will not be a luxurious life, and that I may not ever make ends meet, and that is fine with me. I just want to be able to make and do what I want, and enjoy life.
I am getting ready to start college, and I assume that getting a business degree will help me with my endeavour of owning my own business. Correct me if I am wrong, I really am completely lost concerning what to do in college. I was going to go to school for singing, and songwriting/arrangement, but Berklee College of Music is way too damn expensive, so I am only gonna go for this summer. Then I am coming back here to Naples Fl and going to FGCU.
Basically I want to know if anyone has followed there dream, particularly one similar to mine (moving to a place, being creative, making enough of a profit to live fairly comfortably, no family). If anyone has advice, concerning the college decision or the Maine decision, that'd be great.
We have a hubber who specializes in what jobs are where. This is the one she wrote about Maine.
Dont know if there have been changes since it was written, but she would probably answer a question if you comment on this hub.
Looks like healthcare might offer some opportunities. If you could support yourself by working in a dentists office part time, you could possibly pursue your other interests as well.
Don't go to college to take something you don't have a real passion for!
Whatever you do in life, pursue your passion, strive to make your dreams a reality. In your field it will be extremely difficult. You will probably have to work crappy jobs to pay the bills until you can establish yourself, but it will all be worth it in the end, if you don't waver, never give up and continue to set goals and reach for them! Remember success isn't measured in how many dollars you earn, but in achieving personal satisfaction even if it isn't recognized. Good luck!
my guess as to why there are so many job openings, is cuz everybody is moving out. Are you ready for reallly long, cold, hard winters? It IS beautiful, quiet, peaceful.
I recently heard tho, that there is talk of the possability Southern Maine getting sold to Massachussets to pay off debt!! Im not sure how true tha is tho. good luck, go for your dreams!!

I have said many times that what you seek in the bible you shall find. Still I see the same few verses being thrown around in support of one opinion or another. I wonder why those particular verses stick...

I was prompted by another thread (What makes a good worker?)to ask this, since some want to be good employees, but many would want to be their "own boss". So my question is for the benefit of those who would...
