Industry too small and salary is stagnant.

True but only if you have lots of contacts and also money to start the firm. I can do freelance which does not cost anything but again need contacts and jobs. At this point what I am looking for is a permanent job switch. ^_^

Yes. In fact I did think about it and being a kindergarten teacher sounds good. But I heard that the pay is not that good.

Sorry I'm so picky. Want to change career but also need something that pays kinda ok. I guess it does not make sense if you change career to something that does not pay well. At least must be comparable to my current pay.
