There are advantages and disadvantages to the chef profession. One advantage is that if you are really good at your work, you may become very famous and wealthy.

PS: Always remember if you passionate about this just go for it. But I would say just have the right dedication you need to get to what you dream
I can only speak to people that I know that have or pursued that career. Be prepared to struggle when starting out and have it be very time consuming. You have to really love it to pursue that career. It won't be easy. I have even met celebrity chefs and they are trying to open their own restaurants. It is not easy to do and also be successful. I had a friend who went to culinary school, but then quit shortly after and went back to the corporate world because it was not enough to sustain his lifestyle. However, if you're passionate about food and think you really have a lot to share, then you should go for it.
