I've come to a point in my life where i have to make a choice that might decide the rest of my future carriere.
I'm really thinking about becoming a cook and hopefully make it to a chef one day. I've pretty much have it all planned out. Due to the school system in Denmark i've found a culinary school already, and also have gotten a job offer for further experience.
Eversince i was a little small kid, i've always found a passion within the kitchen.
Personally im very ambitious, and wouldnt work half hearted. The problem im having with this choice of career is that there is so much i have to give up to life out my passion. That might or might not die out in lets say 10 years. So far i've spend time working for free to get the feeling of the life in a busy kitchen.
These are some of my worries:
- Lack of time when future wife/kids gets in the picture
- Lack of money compared to other job career.
- Losing the passion due to the many hours it requires to become a great chef.
- Other general factors as stress, OSH and such.
I was hoping some of you more experienced chefs could give me some advices, heads up or anything that could help me getting any closer to a decision.
Thanks in advance
