I am considering a career change and would like to speak with people in various fields. I have a college degree, but my interests have shifted since I graduated, and I am strongly considering leaving the field for good. This degree, however, contributed to the following skills:
Speed reading
Math, including mental math
Problem solving; see above
Mental manipulation of shapes in three-dimensional space
Love of learning
Interest in meeting people with different backgrounds

I am seeking an interesting career in a field with long-term potential to learn new skills and climb within a company. I am looking to hear from people in the following fields or something CLOSELY related:
Electrical work
Metal Working
Music: I am a good singer.
Tree Work
Landscape Design
International Business
Legitimate work-from-home opportunities

I have in mind an informational interview to learn what sort of background makes people succeed in the field and how I could get started. I can see myself doing well in any of the above fields if given an opportunity and support; I have good foundational skills. I enjoy putting both my body and my mind into my work. I worked for both a greenhouse and a home-improvement contractor and consider both to be worthy jobs.
At this point, there is neither desire nor money to pursue more schooling. I've spent enough time in classrooms and don't want to repeat the job search I've had with my degree.

Two personal facts:
I consider selfies the lowest form of photography.
I am teaching myself German and am around an intermediate level. I am seeking a conversation partner to help me with the speech details. I had German people give an English reply to a question I posed in German, so I know I have work to do on my accent.
