Makeup Artists Make More Than You Might Think

When you are a child and were asked the ever important question “What do you want to be when you grow up?” the answer usually didn’t rely on the paycheck the job choice made. At what point do our passions get overrun by the amount of money we can make?

Too often do people get into a career only for the money and not because they actually enjoy the job. There are told to be practical and grow-up, but it is possible to make good money doing something you love. Imagine a life where you love waking up each morning to go to work compared to dreading every day that you have to go into the office.

When you are passionate about your career, you will be looking for opportunities to learn and grow beyond the typical parameters of the office. Being excited about your job will show and help you advance further, possibly even making up for a smaller paycheck in the beginning.

That being said, money is important, and taking a job that pays the bills is not a bad thing, but look for ways to make it enjoyable. Never pursue a job in a field that you absolutely hate just because it pays well. There are plenty of other jobs out there that pay just as well. For example, if you hate blood, don’t try to be a doctor or a nurse.
