A lot of will you be happy depends on you and your attitude. I have worked in Marketing in some form/manner for over 35 years. For example...I love analyzing data and coming up with recommendations based on the information provided along with my experience. But some people only want to do the "fun" part, implementing a plan versus designing a plan. Those people would probably hate having to analyze data...others enjoy.

On the whole, American workers are generally satisfied with their jobs. Even so, a significant share (30%) view the work they do as “just a job to get them by,” rather than a career or a steppingstone to a career. Views about work are sharply divided along socio-economic lines, and the sense of vulnerability is most acute among workers with no college education and lower-than-average household incomes.
"Marketing" covers a lot of specialities. In my university classes, marketing was taught primarily as product strategy. In the firms I encounter today, marketing is usually focused on product promotion including programs and campaigns. Some of the specialties in marketing include roles in defining product strategy, planning future products and promotions as well as individual skills such a writing, blogging, social media marketing, project management of promotional campaigns, and much more.
Only you can decide what makes you "happy." Think about the types of work you've done in the past that you enjoyed. Was it as an individual contributor or as part of a team? Was it a longer-term project or more execution-oriented? Let your past guide your future.
