Here is the scenario: you are a plumber who wants to be an opera singer.
Correction: you are a very skilled plumber, but midlevel at best as an opera singer, and you understand this.
You happen to be a very skilled plumber because you have lots of practice in your plumping profession. Pipes are breaking, and business is booming in plumbing. And it pays exceptionally well.
You do not get much of a chance to work on your opera skills often because pipes are breaking, business is booming, and plumbing pays well.
This does not discount your desire to do more opera. In fact, your lack of training and even your possible lack of marketable talent does not discount as well.
There is a venue that will have you as an opera singer if you are willing to make the sacrifices asked of you. And if you are, your community can find another plumber. Maybe not as good as you, but who will get the jobs done.
