What Color Is Your Parachute?

...So my cube neighbor and I went to grab some coffee the other morning and she began to share with me her life/career journey! Every time I hear other peoples story and or history it makes me wonder what the hell I am doing and why the hell I am not chasing my dreams. I never want to settle for any random job however I've allowed myself to work in random places just to gain experience and hopefully in the long run help me understand what I really want to do.
Any ways...she told me about a book that helped her. The book is called WHAT COLOR IS YOUR PARACHUTE BY: RICHARD N. BOLLES. The book has sold over 10,000,000 copies i guess you can add 1 to that cause I bought it that same day.
I've always known I wanted to be in the entertainment industry, behind , in front I dont care but I know thats where I belong. But I've never really known how to get there, sadly. I hope this book can help me plan my next step. My friend BFR said it best, professional transition. I just hope it doesnt take too long, I am almost to 30. FML.
