Anyone thinking about starting a new career or have already? I’ve been doing this for 14 years and kinda sick of the limited opportunities, agency politics and “blah" Creative.

i didn't either until my software engineer friend at amazon told me. i thought programmers were doing great, but he seemed to be very grim about it. always be skeptical of corporations, people. they often don't have our best interests in mind.

Not yet honestly (but I don’t have the 14 years you do). Staying open to it though. Learning about copywriting was almost accidental so maybe I’ll learn a way into something else.

I’m 14 years in myself (though in strategy, not creative). I like the nature of the work but find myself worn out by the realities of being in a service business and feeling like the industry environment has become more chaotic over time. I also for the first time question if I want to move up any higher because I’ve seen the nature of my job shift the further up I’ve gotten and I like those tasks and responsibilities less and less. My challenge is I haven’t found anything yet that feels like the right fit so I feel a bit lost. (Also primary breadwinner so can’t afford to take a huge paycut.)

@CD2 this has crossed my mind a lot lately. I don’t need much just enough and time with my family.
