I notice that a lot of those people who were on the weight loss contest shows tend to become motivational speakers or end up running a fitness class afterward. It got me thinking that my weight loss could turn into a job. But now comes the issues, I have to figure out what I want to do, do I go back to school to become a nutritionist just before I hit 40 (I'm 36 now and it'll take at least 2 years to go through school)? Do I start looking for places that I can simply speak? Do I start interviewing people that work at gyms to see how they got their job?
Honestly, I really need a job. My husband's income isn't enough. I come up with a new job plan about every 6 months and this is my newest one. I'd love to become a nutrition counselor, but I'm afraid that I'm getting too old to start up a new career, not that I actually ever had a career in my life. I don't know if I have to believe in God to work at the Y and I don't want to wait to get my foot in the door until after I finish school. I would love to go to school and have at least a part time job until I can get through the schooling that would bring my income up considerably.
I suppose I just need to start doing the thing that I was taught in college (when I went for graphic design) and start interviewing places to see how I can get to a new career. I could honestly start out at the place I pay to work out. I'll never know until I try and the thing I regret more is never having tried. Waiting just makes time pass, but it never gets things done, so I just need to work on asking questions. The worst thing that can be done when asking questions is not getting the answer right away or getting one that I don't care for. Either way I'll have learned something, regardless of the outcome.
So onto my next plan, asking questions to get myself to a well paying career.
