Meeting/Event Planner
Median salary: $55,678 

If you're a creative, organized individual who is business-minded but who also wants to hone their inner Martha Stewart, organizations are willing to pay you well to ensure their events go off without a hitch. Most meeting/event planners at this salary level have a bachelor's degree, though many have achieved success with an associate’s degree or high school diploma and a few years of experience.

Just remember that as the event organizer, every little problem that arises is yours. Also, you'll probably have to deal with vendor contracts and other similar arrangements. But if you thrive in that type of detail-oriented environment, you might've been born for this.
