My spouse does have an IT job and I dont think he will divorce me. He however does expect me to make about 50k right off. So realistically we are talking 25-65k. I dont think I could ever make 200k in IT, but hubby makes over 100k. We have paid off cars and are getting mortgage payments down with extra payments to prepare ourselves for this change. But I think if I have a passion for something, money can come several other ways too. What about some real estate investing on the side? Buying some run down property, doing work (including meaningful plan changes etc) and selling. Or is that something architects typically dont do or dont find time for? I am trying to find something that will meet all my objectives. Financial independence is very important to me, as is retirement, so I just cant quit my day job and go to school. I just saw an ad for a administrative assistants position in an architecture firm in Evanston, IL. It was part time too. I was thinking about applying to see if I could get a feel for the industry, build contacts etc. If so, should I be upfront and honest about my intentions?
