What are jobs/small companies where you can work independently or be your own boss?

I'm going to be a nurse..but I don't want to do it forever. People don't realize how insanely stressful it it..but I am saving up my money to either a) open my own business or b) go get some other cert. or license to work on my own. If I can continue to make 70k per year..awesome..or even if I need to work up to it..but at least a job that has a 50k potential for me..I'd be willing to take the cut if it meant not having to work under any more horrendous women. LOL What are jobs where you can be your own boss? (preferably ones that make a halfway decent living) here are my ideas so far: a) realtor b) personal trainer c) cosmetologist d) massage therapist e) home daycare f) electrician g)plumber h) computer tech. (pretty much anything related to that :)) i small company ideas i can start: a) tanning salon b) catering c) anything food related d) online clothing/make up girly sort of store haha :) e) pet shop f) bakery/cafe shop g) salon owner (i set the price and rent it out) h) dance studio i) car sales ( i can open a tiny lot and get licensed) j) bed & breakfast :-) k Please add to the lists! Am I missing anything? All the people that I know that work on their own are nannies, computer techs, personal trainers, realtors, massage therapists, etc. MORE?
