What's a job that fits this description?
I want a job where I can talk to people whether in front of a crowd or just to one on one. I want something that I can help people. But I also want something that I would be able to live off of the money. If possible a job where I could travel the world. Is there anything like that?

Great question. I work in the nonprofit space (here, CareerVillage.org!) currently in fundraising and it checks all of the boxes you mentioned. #nonprofits More generally, I'd recommend looking into business development roles to see if they sound appealing. In biz dev, more often than not, you'd travel and interact with tons of people (colleagues, clients, leads/potential customers, etc.) about topics that you're passionate about. #business-development
You should consider learning & development positions (sometimes called 'training') in companies. You sometimes train a few people and other times speak to larger crowds. You are always helping people learn the skills needed to do their jobs. These positions are often found in Human Resources departments.
When trying to decide what you'd like to do, I always recommend that people spend some time reading job ads. Cut and paste the parts that sound truly fun or fulfilling to you. As you put all of the pieces together, you'll begin to see a pattern of what you would really enjoy.
Best of luck to you!
Best of luck to you.
Have you thought of Travel, Tourism and Hospitality Management? The options to work are pretty vast. You get to talk to people and help them (in a hospitality standpoint). Another idea is a translator, you can work for organizations which need translators to travel the world with diplomats etc. Good luck!
As for what type of job you'd be fit for, you can take the Myers Briggs test and assess your personality first. They will recommend you a list of careers that are fit for you. You already specified though that you enjoy traveling the world, helping people and speaking to people. Sounds to me you could be a public advocate, perhaps work for a nonprofit that allows you to travel to places to talk to people, advocate about certain issues.
Consider - PEACE CORP, UNICEF, etc.
You will probably be working as a sales assistant as part of a larger team as you learn for some time, and depending on what you are selling you may need to be licensed. For example, financial services sales brokers (those who sell investment products for retirement, etc,) have to follow strict licensing requirements but they also have the potential for high earnings.
Acting is also a career choice. Read K. Callan's The New York Agent Book. https://www.amazon.com/New-York-Agent-Book-Career/dp/1878355228
It has practical information on how to pursue a career as an actor. Not only would you be available for Public Service Announcements, but through acting many people find a way to give back by helping to tell the stories of people who have struggled.
