Find your happiness, then find your job

It took me less than four months of working for a major TV/Radio network in Manhattan to realize that I was headed on the wrong career path, but boy did I wish I had figured it out before taking the job.

My regret? I never took the time to really sit down and weigh all of the positives and negatives of the journalism career I was about to embark on. More importantly, I never even asked myself, "Is this going to make me happy?"
