Why are you scared?
It can't be worse than my situation. I had a small home business. nothing big but earned enough that I wasn't living paycheck to paycheck.
I did this for about 10 yrs. Got bored of working alone.
So last year, I decided to do a career change. pursuing my love if food!!
Enrolled in commercial cookery at TAFE which included a job placement at the end of the course.
All great till March this yr. Job placement got cancelled due the pandemic and the course is messed up. It's a practical course.
Restaurant and hospitality industry is completely fucked.
You could be where I am right now which is worse than you... In the middle of a career change to the food industry!!
That said I am a positive person so I am not taking it that bad and I am seeing the funny side of my horrible timing to my career change to the food industry. Haha
