Title: Strange Decays That Lead to Beauty Growth

Abstract: Studying and doing research in physics leads one to believe that they are destined to become a Professor or Research Scientist (good work if you can get it!). However, there are a wealth of opportunities available in other fields where training in physics is incredibly useful and advantageous. Citing my own unlikely path from UIC's Department of Physics to becoming an award winning filmmaker, I will show how many physicists are making important (and sometimes lucrative!) contributions outside of their field. Yes, they are happy.
