I am 26 years-old. I left my full-time job 6 months ago to pursue my baking passion before COVID-19 escalated. The plan was to get hired and learn from chefs but it's been tough. Was it a wrong move?

I've always had a passion for baking. When I still had my full-time job, I would bake during the weekends and make a small source of extra income. I resigned 6 months ago so that I could pursue my passion and learn from actual patisserie chefs even though that meant taking a big pay cut. I didn't regret my choice then but I might be now. Market is bad and the pay is low. Thought passion is enough to tide through tough times but having low income is hard. Should I have not resigned?

What are your thoughts?

I can see your passion in baking. To be honest, no one can predict the covid situation to have such a huge impact on our Singapore economy. I personally did not expect that so many people would be out of jobs. While we never know what will happen in the future, the best investment you can make now is to invest in yourself. Who knows your baking skills might be valuable once the economy opens up? Wish you all the best!

No.

No one could have predicted the coronavirus. You were passionate, you devoted time during the weekends, you even got paid for your baking. You made the best decision you could last year. So, don't beat yourself up over this unknown.

Are you improving your baking skills? I know it's hard, given that we don't know if this coronavirus will ever really end, but hey, humans are adaptable. so you will adapt to the new normal and find your way. When you get awesome at baking, people will come knocking on your door. I sincerely believe that.

Hey there, I understand what you mean.

I actually want a side baking hustle too. Recipes all on You...
