I'm curious if anybody here has any experience working in fields that 'sort of' require you to have a degree, but only to prove your credentials to a potential client. Meaning that your degree is irrelevant in terms of you getting hired.
A few examples
I can't think of any more at the moment... I'm an avid reader, and Philosophy and Psychology have always been huge passions of mine. I'm getting into personal finance and learning how to create wealth but I don't want to work for other people my whole life. I'm ALSO very fit and I am passionate about pushing my body to the limit on a daily basis. I think I would feel extremely fulfilled in my life if I could get paid even just enough to get by, by helping other people improve their physical AND mental health.
My idea is to set up an 'office' of sorts in my garage and I'd work out with the client and train them physically WHILE they talked me through what's going on in their lives', what's troubling them, why they feel like they can't reach their goals.
I think my idea is PERFECT for me as a person to do as a career but I'm just not experienced enough with either field to know how feasible it is. I figure that most professionals willing to fork over money to better themselves physically with a trainer, or improve their mental state with a therapist, would likely be the type to value saving time by combining the two. I think this might be a niche thing that could really work out.
Opinions? Anyone here work for themselves? Just curious what you might think
