From my little understanding, I think being an Alex Howes type rider would be a great gig. Long World Tour career, I'm sure he's paid well. He's been on the same team for a long time now. Life in Girona would be awesome. Who can say no to that. Someone like Alex probably has a lot of great opportunities after World Tour as well. I feel like making it to the World Tour fairly early on would make it easier. Fighting around the conti/pro conti scene for years would be hard.

Reading Draft Animals was an interesting perspective on what a rider bouncing around the pro conti/conti scene can be like. It does seem very difficult. I don't think I could handle that. I recommend the book to any cyclist.
