Help! Pursue a great career VS my passion?

For context: I’ve been a startup founder and ran a small fitness studio (my passion). I had to close them down due to COVID. Then I got a job at a local Accelerator to pay my bills.

Workload & company culture wasn’t a fit, so I quit. I have a dilemma whether to join a global accelerator (huge pay and learning potential) or go back to my fitness biz. I’ve yet to figure out my longterm goals, but I really enjoy doing both! Pls share your thoughts 🙏🏼
