It's hard to figure what to do as a profession as there are many ways to earn a living. The on-line school of Khan Academy is free for you to possible research some subjects that you might like. There are many factors that I would consider. Be careful of scams to learn that would take your money. Research well if folks ask for money when it sounds too good to be true that they'll get you your dream. Critical thinking of finding out if it's true is key important. Lots of good people in the world...you can never ask too many questions, but those few bad apples sometimes are out there.
If I had a family, I'd try to earn a good living where they reside if there is good employment.
What's important to you? Money, stability of the job and number of hours, special training, ease of different employer options to change, time of day, travel (as you've stated), education, benefits (like retirement money), standing, hard labor, or sitting all day, stress level, danger, good boss (not a slave driver) and many other factors.
Ideas of good jobs here that my friends do...
Firefighter (dangerous, work 3 days on and 4 days off, benefits, stressful, stable job, hard to find a different employer if not happy and good money since it's dangerous
Electrician, Accountant, Computer programmer, furnace repair, nurse, teacher, customs, childcare, machinist, mechanic, project manager of construction jobs, chemist, architect, dental assistant, bus driver, graphic design logo artist, and webpage programmer.
Best of luck!
