It's tough to leave the relative safety net you have going with the great benefits, easy job, pay etc.
It sound slike you're really looking at making a change. It sound super exciting to me, and being that you're already in sales....you'd probably have to work harder and knowing pay is not all salary, you'd probably have an opportunity to do even better.
I'm no life coach, but it sounds like you've been waiting for something like this.......and I just can't help but think Alberta is still lagging behind a bit in the craft beer market.
Thing is I'm not particularly interested in Sales, especially if it's commission driven. This just happened to be what they had openings for and given my sales experience they were interested in me.
Like I've applied for other jobs and they're all radically different from what I do now - Business development for the government, research for a study on addiction, purchasing for a university, etc.
Money's never been a huge thing for me so biggest things for me is interesting work, decent benefits, and set hours/no more than 40hrs/wk are a bonus.
