Skill: Teaching and Motivating
Teachers typically don’t make six-figure incomes no matter how much experience they have — the median wage for a high school teacher was $58,030 in 2016. However, having good teaching skills could help spearhead your career as an adviser, consultant or life coach.
Jobs that require leading or educating people about a product or company, or provide coaching help, are in high demand and could be the ideal career path for you. If you work independently as a life coach and set your own rates, your earning potential easily could reach six figures. PayScale reports the total pay for a life coach can be up to $210,162, as of March 2018.
