I received a heart-wrenching email this morning. Related: Is It Ever 'Too Late' To Get Your Dream Job? A middle-aged gentleman - let’s call him Brian to protect his privacy - wrote in to me sharing his story, and asking for advice… Brian had served in the military for over a decade before being medically retired due to an accident. He then went on to get his degree at film school so that he could pursue his dream of becoming a filmmaker. And that’s where Brian ran into a problem. See, since changing careers, he’s essentially starting out at the bottom of the ladder... And he has to compete with all the early 20’s grads who are willing to break their back for a shot at making it. Brian needs to take care of himself and his family - yet he also wants to get his dream job. So, what to do?
