Changing it up Careerwise (Is That Even a Word?) After What Seems Like a Lifetime

What should I do with the rest of my life? Game changing career decisions. Not folding scarves.

I'm thinking of changing careers. I've been in some type of retail job since I was 15 years old.  

Been self employed for 17 years. Opened my first store at 25 (Beautiful Baby). My business partner & I at that time were pretty much like Romy & Michelle.  

Anyway, after being self employed for so many years, it's kind of terrifying to think of going out into the real-world workforce. Do I need a mug? Pantsuits? 

I'm not exactly sure what I want to do. Real estate agent? Reiki practitioner? Professional matchmaker? Yes seriously. The last couple I set up got married!

I'm having my resume done.

Maybe it's a midlife thing? I'll be 42 next week. Is 42 midlife?  

It would be so much easier to just buy a convertible.
