I still want to be a planner but feel i'm too old to start a new career. Only if I lived in the same city that my mentor does I feel it would be possible to make the leap. I have been focusing on my new job in project management at a design firm. I have also currently have an art show hanging at a local tea house. I've sold 3 piece.
I am very excited at it. Perhaps if a few other things fall in to place in my life I can start seriously pursuing account planning would be viable as a career move.
Thanks to Bram and Lynette for putting up with me.
