Just to vent out what exactly my feelings are, I've always wanted to be in a field of work which interests me and which has the potential to make me very rich. I know becoming filthy rich takes an excessive effort and luck plays a factor too and I might never ever become that rich even in the field which I deemed would make me rich. But still, the possibility to becoming rich from that field of work should be there.
For example, I wouldn't want to become a carpenter, because no matter how much hard I try and how much luck is on me, I'd never become a millionaire. So carpentry is a field I wouldn't want to waste my time with*
I'm obsessed with this line of thought is the reason I had asked this question on SP here - http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?870232-Are-there-any-millionaire-web-designers.
I gathered from the above thread that web designing could make one a millionaire if coupled with web entrepreneurship or opening up a studio. I was fairly satisfied.
Now, I'm switching to graphic designing. So what I'm worried about is, would graphic designing be like 'carpentry' as in the example I gave above in terms of being rich? Could diving into a related field, product designing, be any better?
(*I just took carpentry as an example and did not mean to hurt anyone's feelings or to put anyone or any field down. )
Any thoughts are appreciated!
