Tired of working for someone else? Explore these career paths!

If you’ve spent years in the same mundane job or you’ve lost passion for the current path you’re on, why not use this time to explore other careers instead! There are a number of different routes you can head down to get yourself out of the irritating corporate structure, enabling you to be at the top of the food chain as your own boss.

With so many benefits to working for yourself including choosing your working hours, location and what you want to charge, here are some career options for you to explore.


If you love what you do and enjoy your profession, why not consider going freelance with your skills. Becoming a freelancer can open up so many doors to new opportunities, all while potentially earning more money than you did working for a business. Don’t forget to set yourself up as self-employed though and keep a good track of your outgoings and incomings.


Whether you have experience in trading or have a keen financial eye, becoming a forex trader could be the career for you. If you’re good at recognising patterns and can keep your cool under pressure, why not sign up for a free forex trading account to put your skills to the test. Although it has its ups and downs, it could be the career path for you.


A consultant works similarly to a freelancer in the sense that you’re likely to be offering a service you were doing in a previous role. If you love what you do but don’t want to be stuck in one place, running a consultancy business will allow you to control your own decisions, work with a wider range of people and businesses and control your finances. Don’t forget, just like being a freelancer, you’ll have to set yourself up as self-employed or even as a limited company.


Whether you’ve got an incredible new idea or product to launch, or perhaps you understand the intricacies of a certain market, use your skillset with full autonomy and start your own business. Being an entrepreneur can come with many ups and downs, but the rewards can be like no other.


Maybe you’re a skilled musician or artist, or perhaps you love painting or creating handmade products – if you have a hobby that you’ve always wanted to turn into a career, why not just go for it and start making a living from it! You may need to put a small amount of money into your new business to buy stock or products, but having the freedom to be able to be creative with little/no restrictions could be the career boost you need.
