My career Two-Face

For a while now I’ve been on one career path, that of the all-encompassing creative. I design. I do marketing consulting. I write. And in the last year I’ve become very serious about photography.

Since adding that to my creative tool kit, my career has split between what is photography and everything else that is not. The problem is it’s basically like running two full-time businesses. Not good for the mind, body, soul or anything really (except maybe the bank account).

As I look at the future I’ve pondered going strictly photography. This would have a ton of advantages. But as I get closer to something like that, I find I also want to continue doing all the other things I love. I’ve been designing and working in the ad world for almost 15 years now. That’s a long time and a lot of love to just walk away.

So I find myself with several paths I could take. None are completely perfect. I’m really not sure where to go from here.

    That’s me. I own and operate with my wife a design, photography, and Apple support business. We also both work full time jobs in addition to that. Stretched? Maybe :)

    I dunno dude. Maybe the answer is staff.

    God knows. I’ll pray for you man.

    Hey! I understand how ya feeling… Just manage ur time wisely, my man… You will get through and ask God, trust me, you can talk to HIM about anything, even things like this… just cuz people think we only suppose to go to for praise and when we are in trouble and need help, does not mean you can just talk to HIM just to talk to HIM. Love you and ask HIM or your best friend… that’s what God sent them here for. God bless you and your Family.
