Default Transitioning To Other Careers

Good afternoon,

Was curious to know if anyone has been able to use their electrical license to transition to careers within or out of the industry. I'm currently a licensed journeyman in my state but am looking for the next step in my career and want to know how I can use this experience to move up.

I'm looking into getting my bachelors degree as well. Maybe in Construction Management - seems the most logical transition - but I'd like feedback from other industry pros on what's out there.

Just keeping my eyes forward on what's next. Interested in hearing your success stories, or, if you stayed on the tools why you think that's a better route.

Most of my life has been in the sales end of the industry. I only got into contracting to experiment with a different form of self abuse.
