Your plan isn’t working out, but transitions aren’t easy and they require preparation. Are yo supposed to suffer in the mean time? Absolutely not.
What you need to do is understand that you can always find things within your control – things you can do to improve your situation. It might be cutting down on some costs, or it could be getting a part-time job. Some of those jobs are so flexible you can choose the hours you work so they fit in with your other duties.
If you start thinking about what you could be doing as a part-time job, your qualifications will direct your thought process. Some people drive for Uber, and others look for online jobs they can do (translate to languages they know, personal assistants, data entry work).
Your initial rates are almost never the rate you will end up at. You need experience, and you need to show you can do good work. Once you do this for about a month or two, you will be able to pull in even more work, and eventually transition to this new career.
Hope this email helps you.
