Default A graphic designer looking for a career change

I have been in this industry for 7 years and currently working as an Art Director in a small design firm.

Recently I have grown weary of the industry as it seems to bring me nowhere (in terms of stability and remuneration) thus I am looking for a career change.

I would greatly appreciate if anyone could provide some advice on feasible industries or jobs which I could try it out.

Thank you,
Aimless soul

In the first place, what you really want to be?

Mash, I have no answer for you but I think the graphics design space is too crowded. Anyone can start a small company and take away your clients. So the entry barrier is too low. I support your move out of this and look for something else. But then again, you have to think what other skills you have.
