Hi,
Can anyone throw out some ideas for a good paying career for a quiet, shy/introvert person?
Good pay meaning- starting at atleast $40,000/yr or $50,000/yr and can go up from there after some years of experience.
Also not a 4 yr degree required as I am already in my early 30's. I honestly don't know what I want to do. I don't have a particular interest or passion in anything. I know I should already be in a steady career at my age. I hope it's not to late for me.

Thanks to anyone who has some smart suggestions/ideas.

^Very few research jobs require less than a bachelors. Many entry-level positions require a 4yr degree, ie research coordinator, laboratory technician, data manager, etcetcetc. If you're lucky enough to find a position that doesn't require a degree, it definitely will not be at a starting salary of $40-50K/year

I only have childcare experience. But I don't really want to become a school Teacher. Teacher's don't make good money anyway.

I never was good at school. I hated studying so I never got good grades.

You need a degree for that anyway.
