Hello all!
I'm 45, employed with a global firm making 6 figures, bonus, stock options, great benefits, travel the world, etc etc etc.

But, internally, I've been going through a major crisis: wanting to do more than what I'm doing by making a real difference in my community. I've been thinking about the school system where I live, looking at career counseling, Asst Principal, maybe even working with troubled students. I'll no doubt require some certification or advanced degree, which I'm more than willing to go after.

I really feel this is my calling and am prepared to walk away from what I'm doing now. I like what I do, but it's just no longer fulfilling. I'm hoping to hear from anyone who's gone through similar struggles around this type decision and how you dealt with it, what you ended up doing and if you were happy with your decision.

Thanks a mil!
