Hello everyone. I just stumbled across this site very informative community and thought this would a great place for a question that I've been looking for guidance on. I'm currently in the military and have about a year left. I'm 30 years old and work in cyber security right now. However, I have always wanted to cook. Nothing in the world gives me a better feeling than the satisfaction of creating in the kitchen and seeing someone's face when they taste my food. I have been in touch with the CIA (San Antonio) and am super lucky because if I decide to attend it will all be free, so debt isn't something I have to worry about. But my question is more life oriented. I now have a wife and one child (3yrs). Is pursing this career path viable for taking care of my family? I'm sorry, I know that's a weird question. Most of what I read is people starting much younger with no ties. I have no qualms or delusions about working hard and long hours (I am in the military after all). My only concern is completing the school, and getting job where I get paid enough to comfortably care for my family. Any advice/guidance anyone can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
