Well done. This is a brilliant story. I’m so glad you found the right combination of day-job work and DJing. And thanks for spelling out the choices you made to accomplish that. It often isn’t easy but if you really want something it can be done.
I always say to people that being unhappy is expensive. You medicate yourself in so many ways when trapped in a job you hate — anything from retail therapy to massage therapy just to keep the show you hate on the road. When you are doing what you love then you can get by on less.
