Not everyone is cut out for a 9 to 5 job. And hey, that’s totally fine. Some of us just want to add a little more variety to our lives, whether it be for the time being or a lifelong career.
When you think of high-paying jobs, engineers and doctors might be the first professions that come to mind.
While obtaining a six-figure salary may be the ultimate goal, many of the top jobs in medicine, technology and math, however, remain at a standstill.
It may surprise you, but there are countless other careers with high-earning potential that don’t fall under the typical categories you’re thinking of.
Below you’ll find 25 jobs for people that like to think outside the box. Some are as strange as they sound — a professional cuddler, for example — while others require graduate degrees — such as a genetic counselor, a health professional that assesses an individual or family risk for inherited conditions like genetic disorders and birth defects.
Don’t delay, live your dream today. Whatever it may be.
