As I travel through the internet (as I’ve been known to do on a regular basis), I sometimes come across a career, field or company that blows my mind with its existence. These seemingly weird careers are the opposite of what we’re told is possible, lucrative, or stable. And yet – here they are!
Get ready for some if-that-exists-than-I-can-do-what-I-want inspiration and encouragement (my favorite!):
Music thanathologist (playing music bedside to help ease that person into death)
Flatulence filtering underwear inventor
Foley artist (they make sound effects!)
Pizza firetruck owner
Goat renter (for landscaping)
Smashing Place owner (where people can go and smash things to alleviate anger)
Chicken renter (for those who wanna try before they buy, or want fresh eggs seasonally)
Post-party cleaners (that include Gatorade & breakfast burritos to help with the hangovers)
RunPee inventor (it tells you when it’s “safe” to go to the bathroom so you don’t miss the best part of the movie!)
Personal historian (she’s essentially a biographer that anyone can hire)
Cookie deliverers (by bike!)
Owner of a treehouse BandB
Immigrant-led cooking classes (in the homes of the teachers!)
I think what’s most exciting here is that I can probably come up with another 46 “odd” careers in a jiffy – which just proves how many opportunities that fall outside the realm of the traditional careers we were all told about growing up there are. They also are huge showcases for creative, multi-passionate people – which I have a feeling is about 99% of those of you who have read this far!
If that sounds like you – and you wanna create your dream career – then join me on CreativeLive from September 11-13 by RSVPing right here!
