Acting on My Dreams
After I'd been teaching for 15 years, I decided to leave and pursue acting full time. It had always been a passion and a dream of mine, and I wanted to take advantage of that moment in my 30s and start something. I didn't want to get to be 80 years old and wish that I'd tried it.
I also wanted to make sure I was keeping my future plans on track as I pursued my dream, so back then I also opened an IRA and have been contributing to it ever since. I can live my passion, but I can also be smart about my future.
