Chances are that you aren't going to make much money at any of those careers, so choose business or another profession if money is your primary goal. Chefs as a whole don't get much, but they do what they do because they are passionate about cooking and would rather do that than anything else. (Do you watch Top Chef? Those chefs, most of whom work at high-end restaurants, are thrilled to win $5,000 because it's a big boost to their incomes.) Writers also don't tend to get rich at their craft unless they're able to write best sellers, but they write because they are compelled to tell the stories in their heads. Art might offer more options, but it also tends not to pay very well. Do what you love, but don't expect to get rich at it.

Do some career research. Find people working in these fields you are interested in and ask them: - What they like best about their work - What they dislike the most about their work - How easy is it to make a living in this field - What training should you get to work in this field It is best if you can meet with them face-to-face, or second-best is over the phone. Y/A is not the place to do your research. E-mails don't work as well, because you shouldn't bother them with more than one e-mail, and if they say something that brings up another question, you can't ask them ... with a phone call, you can ask. If you decide to get your information through e-mails, it is appropriate to call them on the phone first and ask permission. None of the careers you are considering pay well. If you manage to become a celebrity artist/writer/cook, then maybe there will be some money. But it's the same proportion as American Idol ... only one makes it to the top, and just how many hundreds of thousands audition for any given series? If you want a high-paying job, you need to consider the professions: medicine, dentistry, accounting, engineering. If you want a medium-paying job, you should consider the trades: electrician, plumber, mechanic, carpenter, etc. Most artists and writers have a regular job that supports them, and do their art or writing in their spare time. Most cooks are stressed out and don't make very good money.

Rebecca, Consider becoming an executive chef in the military. I know this sounds strange, but few people know about the extensive training chefs receive while in the service. I'm not talking about a cook; I'm referring to the chef's that prepare cusine for Generals and foreign dignitaries. The government does not allow just any chefs to serve world leaders, as they may be a security risk. By the time you complete your enlistment, you will have learned many styles of food preparation, attended several schools, and not owe a dime, as it is all paid for by the branch of service you select. Go to the website to learn more at, www.militarychefs.com

Mervyn Originally Answered: Is the career Anesthesiology a demanding career?
Have you considered becoming a nurse anesthestist? (sp??) They are required to complete nursing school, usually a BSN then go to graduate school and study the advanced field of anesthesiology. The pay is very good, one of the highest paying in the medical field and the responsibility is great. The nurse anesthestist I know makes about $170,000 a year and writes his own schedule (around surgeries) and is the one in charge of all airway in the operating room. He answers to an anesthesiologist (MD), but has the liberty to run the OR as he pleases and was trained. Very liberating field. PS, I'd think that any field you chose wouldn't be "boring" along the way. To be an anesthesiologist (MD) you get your bachelors degree in anything, usually science related (biology, chemistry) then apply to medical school (4 years). Once you finish med school, you apply to a number of teaching hospitals for residency. You go where you get accepted. Spend 3 years in residency (sometimes 4) then 2 years as an anesthesiology fellow (working mainly in anesthesiology). If you want to become on staff full time, you apply for a staff position and are called an attending physician. It is a long haul. If interested, I'd go the bachelor of science in nursing, get excellent grades, then start working as a nurse. (you have your bachelor's degree - first step of MD process). Get your masters in anesthesiology - and start working (usually a three year program but you can work in the field as a nurse while you are in grad school). then, if you want to go the route of MD, go to med school after that, but you can short cut your way by doing the nurse anesthesia route and if you don't like it, you are still a nurse and can switch and work in any field. Good luck.
