Career Options

I've been doing a lot of brainstorming about possible career choices. I'm limiting myself by this fact-I really don't want to go back to school unless it is totally necessary. Some options:

The most feasible: I go into business with Jon. It only takes a glance at his pictures to see that this is a super talented man. However, he's not really big on going out and promoting himself, and drumming up business. We could have some sort of business together, with me handling all of the business and advertising needs, and him taking the pictures. Also, for weddings, we could do a pretty elaborate package, with me doing videography, and Jon handling the photography. With this plan, I could also do karaoke (at somewhere other than McGuires) a couple of nights a week.

Allison says I should be a gameshow host. Which is very appealing for me. But how? I could totally come up with a great premise, and all of that. I wouldn't want to deal with the rest. I'd like to come up with a game, make questions each week, and record...then be done. Don't know if that could happen.

Science Center/Art Museum/Library. I'm lumping, because I'd just love to work at the Salt Block. This would let me still work with kids sometimes. And I actually like kids a lot.

I'm still open for help, here is a list of things I love/am good at.

Anything that involves a microphone in my hand.
I'm great with kids.
I'm pretty durned creative.
I've got a lot of patience.
I've got good computer skills.
I love to cook, but I don't want to cook in a restaurant.
I'm pretty good at making movies for things...although I've never made an actual movie, as in a story that I shoot then edit.
I like to write.
I work well under pressure.
I'm flexible.
I'm good at integrating technology with other things.
I'm charming and personable when needed.

Things I'm not good at:
Anything mind numbing. I bore easily.
Honestly, I'm not good at working under bossy people.
I'm messy.
I'm pretty unorganized, except for computer things.
I'm not good at being nice to people I don't care for, which is sometimes a real problem in work environments. This mainly effects people that I have to see a lot...not customers that I don't have to deal with for long.
Sometimes I get really interested in something for a while, then get totally bored of it.

So, I don't know. Help!

You could make your own kid's show (like in Death to Smoochy). You could start a day care. You could sell t-shirts over the internet. Or you could host an internet game show on you tube!
