Branching out of F&B

Hi guys, this is the first time I'm actually using a forum to seek professional advice.

I've worked in the F&b line since 2008 and worked my way up from a cook 3 to group head chef. This career path wasn't of my choosing (more like forced upon me by my dad). Most of my peers says that I'm successful but I do not feel that way now.

Yes, when I was young with no family of my own, I don't mind working 12 to 14 hours a day to learn and improve myself in the trade. But now I've got a family, I am missing out a lot because I don't get to see them as often as I want to.

So the question here is, what other industries can I get into that's still somewhat relevant but at the same time allows me to live a normal person's life, like spending time with family in the evening after work and on weekends.

Would really appreciate if you guys could give me advice or maybe if you know of a company that could use my expertise but doesn't require to be in the kitchen, that would be a great help. My wife has made tremendous sacrifice and I think it's time to repay that.

Please help.
