Poker Career


Changing careers

By: FL_UNKNOWN77 @ 08:24 (EDT) / 2 / Comment ( 3 )

I have been in restaurant management for over 12 years now.  I have a wife and 3 kids and I can tell you life over this time has been very challenging.  I missed alot of my daughter growing up and the toll this job has taken on my wife and I's relationship is pretty rough.  I have been looking for a way to get out of this career for awhile now and considering my love for poker I am seriously considering playing poker for a living.  It makes perfect sense for what I am looking for.....happy family, quality of life and most importantly personal happiness.   I really beleive if we work hard enough at something we can do and become anything we want.  I am 33 yrs old and now is the time to make some changes.   Any advice or comments for me would help greatly.  Thanks!  Play hard and good luck.
