If an Admin Assistant will put you into a middle income bracket? Then i say get it a chance while you are doing other things. Maybe you are prejudging it because of your Ego doesn't want to be this.
Take me for example, I used manage a cstore a few years ago and now I'm considering going back into one, allbeit temporarily, if only because it is a means to an end of what I want. Such as not returning to Oklahoma just yet, and getting into better health.
Now if I the situation warranted my return, say I'm unable to find work, Then I'd need to drop the ego of going back to Oklahoma. For some reason I have a negative association and the last few years there haven't agreed with me. I ballooned up to 300lbs roughly.
If you really don't want to do something because your not good at it, or there is something more specific you wish to be doing, do that. But if not, well as Ron said to me, you have to live.
Unless you can find a sugar daddy, which is your other option.
So, am I saying do the admin job and drop the sick feeling? I say drop the sick feeling and see if your open to it, while doing that see if you can't determine through self questioning, stream of consciousness writing, or some other clarity of what you wish to be doing. Focusing on what you don't want will not get you closer to where you wish to be.
Does this make sense? I just woke up so sure if I'm all here
I'm fond of dropping the ego, or at least attempting to extricate its control over our lives. Next is deciding what you want.
A movie I watched called the Debaters had this motto for one of the Kids Family, Do what you have to, so you can do what you want to. Dave Ramsey has another one, You have to live like no one else, so that you may live like no one else.
