Having a math degree gives you a lot more opportunities than people realize. As for which jobs are available, that might depend on what area of math you get your degree(s) in. There's statistics, actuary/business math, operations research, engineering/optimization, number theory, etc.
There are a number of jobs you can use a mathematics degree for other than Teaching, you can become an actuary (potentially high salary, primarily in insurance, some consulting), supply chain management (modeling).

If you want to be your "own boss" grin right out of university you are going to have to have an entrepreneurial attitude, where you can start your own business (up to you what you want to do) or work in a position like financial advisor where you can make as much as you want, depending on how hard you want to work and how well you handle rejection.

If you find a career path that sounds interesting to you, don't hesitate to ask a company in that industry if you can meet with someone in that position so you can learn more about that career path

Right now, focus on getting your degree first, I'm sure the holy spirit has something in store for you wink
Best of Luck!
