Hi Micah,

I agree with all the advice offered above. I would only add that if you're truly equally interested in all these areas and don't have a preference, then trade school will give you the most direct route to job security and a good paycheck. The others have tremendous potential but also a lot more risk and uncertainty. But, if there's an area you're most passionate about, lean there. '

Finally, the last thing I'd point out is that most people change their careers several times over the course of their lives. So don't put yourself under the pressure of having to pick one area "for life". You're only picking it "for now", and dive into it with commitment and enthusiasm. It's very likely that several years later, you'll want to make a switch and dive into another - either as a hobby or as a career - and that would be absolutely normal.

So don't feel boxed in, just make a decision and move forward, knowing that nothing is forever and you can (and probably will) always change in the future :)

Hi Micah!

Looks like you have interests in a range of areas. While it's good to keep an open mind when it comes to trying out hobbies, I'd suggest focusing on one thing at a time when choosing your career because you won't end up with too much on your plate in this case. You can also try and think about how your interests might blend in together in your future job. For example, modelling is quite useful as it helps you to manage yourself well in public and such a skill might aid you in public relations.

What would you say is you strongest area when it comes to your interests?

Hope you have a great day!

A former teacher of mine once said "if you have a job you like, you'll never work a day in your life." So I suggest you pick a career that you will enjoy. Usually, one will be good at whatever it is they enjoy.

Your list has a lot of variety. But the trade schools are in high demand and usually pay well.

But again, my suggestion is you pick a career that will pay the bills but also a career that you think you will enjoy.

Hi Micah,
It's good to have different interests!

I'd start by having someone that inspires you in each of the areas that you would like to follow! If you could find someone that is easy to reach (a cousin / friend / something like that) would be great, because that way you could understand how is like the routine for each profession.

Once you understand their routine, you will be able to see which ones are you favorites and then, you can start to rate what are the ones that are going to bring you the results that you are looking for.

After that, you need to understand how do you see yourself in a few years from now and what are the professions that could help you to get there faster.

Remember to choose something that you like! That is the most important thing!

Good luck!!
