“I hate my job,” “I don’t wanna go to work,” “Will you go to work for me?” This what I hear from so many of my friends. Granted, we’re still students so we’re technically not supposed to enjoy our jobs (according to our parents), but there is still the curiosity looming over our heads. Who does have the fun job if it isn’t me?
Well guys, at the top of the list are travel agents. With perks such as traveling to new places and meeting new people, you can’t go wrong with this career. Not only does a travel agent get to have fun themselves, but they also get to help other people plan their fun vacations. And let’s face it, happiness is contagious!
Ever wonder about those Elvis impersonators? Yeah, they’re also on the “fun” list. Try it out one night; Pick up a wig or a costume and wear it around town. It could be like Halloween all the time if you feel like taking this career path seriously. If you love Snow White, why not impersonate her at Disney World?
You’re gonna love this next one. How about becoming a Ferrari driving instructor? Former NASCAR driver Anthony Lazzaro earns $500 to $1,000 a day as an instructor in addition to what he makes as a professional racecar driver. That could definitely be rent in only one or two days!
You know that old saying, “No shoes, no shirt…[you fill in the blank]”? You can forget that rule if you’re a Cantina owner on a Playa del Carmen beach. Limbo, the relaxed atmosphere, the sand as your office, and plenty of those drinks with the umbrellas in them? Yes, please!
According to monster.com, Cruise Directors are “the multi-taskers of the seas.” The Cruise Director “organizes and goes on shore excursions, manages guest speakers, and schedules entertainment,” among other things. But come on, meeting famous people and having a blast while traveling the seas? Send me an application!
