Career change?

Ok... I am exhausted Ph.D. (Doctor) in sociology, my job is 170 miles away from where I live, not stable and... I do not enjoy it any more.

I don't know what i like any more, I used to like teaching- children, adults, but not any more. Maybe sometimes, may be kids, but actually- not really...

I thought about becoming accountant, but I feel I exhausted even to learn something new. Any ideas on what can i be..?

  • Wow, that is crazy. Now that is a bad commute. Be very open minded to different ideas. Do you like helping people? I know a PhD in Psychology (as well as other Dr's ) that built a business with Arbonne and walked away from their practices. I would love to provide the details of how to build a business such as theirs. You have nothing to lose just getting info. Please read the Dr's story and how she built her business:
    I look forward to hearing from you. Nobody deserves to be that miserable. Best wishes.
