It depends on you. If you think money is no object and your photography needs do not impact your lifestyle, then chances are you’ll have it soon. If you are thinking of entering the profession because you love getting pictures, then it’s probably a good time to decide as well.
If you do enter the industry, try to get what you like working with. That’s why it’s important to get a job where you have a chance for an excellent work life balance (a good job with a good company is also a good job). If you find a good job with a great company, you’ll probably be getting paid fairly well and have plenty of time to get better at what you do.
If it’s not a good job/company with an amazing work life balance, chances are you’ll be unhappy with your work and/or go looking for work elsewhere. The only way to determine that is to find a job within your industry. Once you have that job, take stock and decide if you will continue in the field.
The Bottom Line: Money is not a limiting factor, but the type of work you are doing and your level of education will dictate your career path.

The Eurozone will not be the only country to witness this profound change.
Many other countries in Eastern Europe and much of Asia will suffer the same “transformation” as Eastern Europe did in the wake of the “great depression” and, over a period of decades, the economic reforms that were implemented in Greece, Portugal, Poland, and Hungary will have to be applied globally. Some of the measures that will take place in Eastern Europe and Asia could have a similar impact on countries like Turkey and Mexico.
A fundamental difference between East and West is how to deal with a deep economic crisis. In the West the financial markets, which have been a part of the global currency system long before the financial crash of 2007-08 , are effectively frozen during an economic crisis. However, in the East, which until recently was one of the financial capitals of the world, the markets are allowed to operate normally during a recession and capital flows are
