It's usually a question of how well the "fun job" can pay.
It's best to subscribe to the belief of Confucius......find a job you enjoy, and never work a day in your life.
What is this fun job that pays well? It's the hospitality business. Individuals can work in glamorous settings. If you want to work at a beach, or in the mountains, hotels are everywhere. Best of all, they pay well.
