How to Find the Perfect Day Job

04 Jan

Happy New Year!

I came across an article in Backstage that really hit home for me. The bottom line is this: Why should your day job interfere with your own performing gigs. Do they? Why or why not?

Check out the article below. Maybe you agree or disagree. Truth be told, my experiences give me a rich varied set of skills that acting alone could not offer. My music led me to acting. Maybe I’ll share my story in another blog entry. What say you? My hope is that there are responses to this article. Written by Erin Cronican on January 4, 2013. Whew…2013 has arrived!

        Hey Erin,

        As I write this, I have to say in response (finally) to your article: How to Find the Perfect Day Job! It has taken me years to find it. I’m still working on this. However, the perfect day job is work that you enjoy, preferably, your own business. That’s what I’ve discovered. It took me almost 20 years to get to this point. I enjoy a very healthy arts education career in music and drama. However from personal experience, I still believe that having your own business that sustains a person is the way to go so that you can set your own hours. I’m vested and will retire when I’m ready (which is sooner than later). Now, I’m just thankful to have a retirement and a business that I enjoy. It took years to find it but that’s my belief. Thanks for writing your article. Kim Geter, Geter Voice Over Services, Owner/Talent.
