I'm in a unique situation so please bear with me while I provide a little background. I'm 33 and I've never been under employment. I was always a high achiever at school but I never had any dreams or any goals, and my only real talent was "being good at school". I graduated with a first in Physics(bsc) from a top uni which is (or was) obviously huge, but then I kinda took my foot off the gas and allowed myself to meander. I got really into poker which was very easy money at the time. As someone who never had money before and had no real dream to follow this was very attractive, and I ended up dropping out of my masters to play full time. Naively I thought this was my key to riches and happiness, but this was around the time where Poker died in the US and games got exponentially harder. A few years later and I discovered I was nowhere near as good as I thought, so I started up an online jewellery business. This went extremely well for a few years but as with most good things the honeymoon phase didn't last. I still make a reasonable amount of money for my frugal lifestyle and I own a house, but I'm constantly haunted by the feeling of underachieving. I want to put my degree to use because I know I'm a smart person who should be doing something I'm proud of, but I really have no idea what. I've applied for basic, minimum wage jobs just to get some experience and some variety, but so far I have always been turned down because I'm just "not the right fit". If I'm really committed to a new career path at this point in life, what do you think my best course of action is? I have a very good degree, but old and unused. No employment history. Proof that I have run a successful self employed business. I'm open to more studying, but I'mnot interested in becoming a hardcore academic - I just don't think I'm smart enough for that anymore. Is there anything I may not have thought of where my history would give me a head start, or should I accept that I need to start from square one?
