Hair and beauty
This possible career might seem crazy, but hear me out. First, there is an elegant mathematics to the art of hair design. I did a short stint in the field and really enjoyed it. Not only are you dealing with real people with real issues — some issues a bit bigger than others — but you see instant results.
There is no sitting around and waiting for the rug to be pulled from under you — as is inevitable in IT and consulting — no dealing with budgetary constraints or security holes, no horrific hours, and no cloud.
