Our Collection of Fun and Interesting Jobs
This section has the most fun and interesting jobs, although
to be fair, almost any work can be made fun if you have the right
attitude, and almost any job is interesting if you approach it
as a tool for some purpose, such as an experience to broaden
your mind, or simply as training for your future business. I
recently worked as a sign holder and an electric tram driver,
which were not great jobs, but I did get to write about them
and met some good people.
Among the seventy or eighty other ways I've made money in
my life, I've worked as a auto repo-man, a process server, and
a casino dealer. Some of the jobs here, like many of the ones
I've had over the years, don't pay very well, but that's not
a reason to reject them out-of-hand. As I suggest above, you
might enjoy them for a while and use them as a way to get into
a better position or as a way to prepare for starting you own
