I say this half seriously: start a business helping people in IT make career transitions, as a career advisor/matchmaker with opportunities.

People with IT/IS backgrounds are usually quite broadly capable people, generally speaking.

Actually, I think enabling and giving all kinds of people space, support and ability to explore pivots and opportunities sounds kind of awesome.

That is a fantastic idea. The only caveat might be you becoming a sort of startup guru full of words but lacking real experience pivoting your own career.

all of my best ideas are always given half seriously, those are the ideas worth listening to.

That would be a pretty awesome non-profit.
