Anyone out there ever been a Restaurant Manager and switched careers with the experience they already had?

I'm looking for find some other kind of job using the training and experience I already have gained as a salaried restaurant manager. Any advice from anyone, particularly those who may have already been in my shoes, would be great. Maybe something that's not 50+ hrs a week, with some weekends off? Any advice would be great, but please don't respond with something simple like "Eh, everyone doesn't like there job now and then" or something like that. I'm looking for real help, desperately. Thank you for your time if you answer!
