So long story short,

I'm 26, have a bachelor's degree and getting real sick of making $12-$15/hr.

Not asking for a lot here, just not sure how tf to make $60-$100k a year. Didn't go to college to be making a bit over min wage and spending half my income on rent.

Have sales experience on my resume and was also a personal trainer and bouncer for a bit.

Sales isn't half bad, looked into insurance sales and eventually said screw it (lots of scam job offers plus wasn't going to acquire my property and casualty license if I didn't have a job waiting).

Bouncing you can't do forever and you get tired of being nocturnal. Personal Training has its own ups and downs, money is/can be inconsistent depending on client base and gym politics.

Really looking for job ideas that are relatively low stress, fulfilling work and pay $60k+ a year.

Can explain more if need be.

Very very few bachelors degrees are going to make you 60-100k a year. If you want that kind of money you probably would have to do higher level school.

Apparently something that's useless.
But I didn't put my hair in a pony tail for nothing so if I'm going home alone I'm not going at all.

Then go back to school and pick up a real profession with the necessary certifications and licenses. Your options are limited with only a bachelors degree.

What? It depends on what the degree is in. His is obviously a useless one.

AFAIK the only bachelors degrees that can make you good money are Engineering and Accounting. And maybe Human Resources but you would need a lot of experience in order to move up to a manager.

Apart from maybe nursing or engineering, you're not touching $60k+ with a quality of life this guy wants on just a bachelors degree.

That was my first thought too. It's probably some Liberal Arts degree.

You're not going to find a stress-free job that pays $60k a year. They don't exist. Salary is directly related to how difficult/stressful a job is. The more difficult/stressful a job is, the more it pays. Easy, low stress jobs don't have high salaries.
