I am in a career crisis and I don’t know what to do and need advice. When I was young, like 10-14, I literally had a spa business for my family and family friends. I was a little entreprenuer. I had made up marketing stuff, spa menu etc. I did mani’s and pedi’s and simple facials. I learned all I could from estitician books my aunt had given me (she had just taken some courses and gave me her textbooks). I always did my hair and makeup and treatments on myself throughout highschool etc.
Then I had to “grow up” and go to university. University doesn’t offer those types of courses and I didn’t know what I wanted to be so I majored i Psychology. Did my 4 year and graduated at the start of the recession. It took me 6 months to land a job and I went into COmmercial Real Estate and then got my license so I could takeon more responsibility. Well 4 years later and I am bored,
My FI is finishing school and should be able to provide well for us so I can do my own thing for a bit. He is supportive of whatever I want to do and I keep floating back to aesthetics but my parents think it is beneath me and after spending $60,000 on a university degree, I don’t think they will be dissapointed.
They do not know I am thinking of doing this yet, and I am not sure how much I want to, but I remember how much I liked doing it, and I like the business side of it and the running my own business (I would want to open my own home based business).
Anyways I am looking for some advice/perspective from you bees to help sort out my thoughts. I don’t want to go down another path that I end up not wanting.
