I remember feeling guilty and ungrateful for wanting to leave the glamorous world of entertainment to work in a more mundane industry. The perks of working in the film industry for me included free DVDs, marketing products, film screenings, and the cache of being able to tell people what I did for a living.
This Christmas season, I am working for another global corporation and happier than ever. Back in 2007, I never would have guessed that living back in the Midwest would bring me such joy.
Or that I would be getting super pumped about getting out of debt and cash flowing a home renovation project.
