Startup Projects Background


Hi, I am not really sure weather this should go into business ideas (personal trainers) or forums so i am putting it on both. I have been working as a mortgage advisor for the last 5 years and i am well paid for it. But in the last 6 months i have really began to get cold feet. I often feel very tense and my heart beats fast when i am under pressure and it puts me in a bad mood and i tend to take it out on my innocent family. I massively enjoy sport and fitness and lately i have sort of been daydreaming (not unnoticed by my boss)of spending warm summer days taking people out on runs, running fitness classes in the local park and just all sort of crazy ideas. I know that the industry is very saturated and if the recession gets worse personal trainers are just the things people would sack to save money. I also know it would be a pay cut from like 45k+ bonuses to maybe like 20K – 25K but i am really unhappy in my work and when I spend nights on the sofa i really wounder weather i should stay in a boring job just for money, when i am often so tired and angry in the evenings i have no time to spend it and enjoy it anyway! Please any advice would be most welcome.

At the end of the day I don’t think you can do a job you dont like, I know it sounds cheesy but you DO only live once!
