    Are you in your dream job now?

    Are you in the job you've always dreamed of being in? And if not ,why not?

    Absolutely not, but I would bet that most people aren't. I think for most of us, we have to balance making a living, making a decent wage, with our skills and passions. If I could write and make money doing it, i would quit my job and write. But I also have other skills that, when monetized, outweigh the money I could make by following my passions. Am I miserable in my job?, no, but I definitely wouldn't say I would be doing what I am doing, if money weren't an issue.

      Thanks for your answer. It is true most settle for what will pay the bills and give you a little extra. But look at SMD2012's answer working as a free lance writer and making a living and happy. It can be done, but sounds like your other job pays &gt

    Yes! I am a freelance writer working from home. I love the creative autonomy that I have working for myself! I worked 9-5 for years but had no idea how happy I could be by taking a chance and learning how to fly solo!

    No, I am not in my dream job yet. The reason is because I am still investigating what to really do for a living. The challenge is finding something that you love to do and that pays well enough. Sometimes, you find it hard to find that dream job especially with all the choices available to us these days.
