Is it a bad time to start a new career?

I'm new to this site but I will tell you about me. My wife is also from the Philippines Iloilo. She went back to go to nursing school. I left the government after 15 years I hated my job every day was getting worse and worse. My neighbor who is a trucker also had a wife in the Philippines told me to get my CDL . My first year I thought I made a big mistake I didn't make much money. I was missing my wife so much I couldn't even afford to take time off to go see her. Fast forward last year my 4th Year trucking I doubled what I was making my first year. I was able to take enough time off to spend 6 weeks in the Philippines. My wife will finish school this year. However she now wants to stay in the Philippines and be with family. Last year we sold our home here in Las Vegas. I have a brother in Utah that I stay with for my home time. However I try to stay on the road as much as I can. I will be going back to the Philippines later this year. I will give you this advise. The first year you are learning and you will not make what you think you will. After that first year find a good company that keeps you moving and on the road. If your goal like mine is to live in the Philippines. Stay in the truck as much as you can save that money. Last year I spent about 2 weeks total time at my brothers for my home time. My goal was to save as much of my time and work as much as I can. I will have more time in the Philippines with my wife.
