I did sort of the same but had some bad luck when trying the business part of music

Still I kept coming back to music, which I can't say about all the others jobs I ever had.
Now I'm a producer for a upcoming live act in EDM.

Great viral, nonetheless he hasn't lost his marketing touch.

My experience is that mastering engineers (ok.... only 1 I met) are like bankers.
Only talking about money instead on focusing on the music. And then do a lousy job.

grrr.... people don't realize how long it takes to do the job properly.... if you need an audio engineer but have little money.... the job will indeed be lousy....
I try to make things sound as good as they can be, and often because of this, I have made under 3 dollars an hour.... This is the same for many audio engineers.... people tend to think we can snap our fingers and BANG it's a good mix.... They very rarely want to spend money on the time a good job will take.... Same goes for making a film...
Magically we point the camera and Poof the film is created... It's a BAD joke...
Wake Up

It's a touching and amazing story. That said, the guy was 23 and had no one that relied on him but himself. No kids. No wife. It's a lot easier when all you have to worry about is yourself.

Tack a decade or two onto his life, add some kids and a wife into the mix - it's not as easy as that. But still - a great story nonetheless!

My advise is if you don't like your job is keep being honest with people about it. Nobody will ever be unimpressed with you wanting to make things better for yourself. I've had trouble fitting in after a company reshuffle and after finally settling down to put my thoughts on paper and share it with my management they realised I had valid reasons to be unhappy and found me something much more suited to my skills. Not as dramatic on walking out of a high flying job but suffering in silence will only lead to misery.
