    I just came across this video:



    and it really resonates with me. It's about something I've been really struggling with. Dream vs. money. The job I would like to do will never earn me stacks of money because it's philanthropic. I'm trying to find careers that are related but with larger salaries but struggling. I could never work purely for the money in a job I hated though or felt was giving nothing to others. However, the thought of earning more money and being able to retire early or travel a lot really would be nice.

    Has anyone followed their dream career, earnt enough money to not have to worry about basic needs and get a house etc, but not LOADS of money... and regretted it?
