So often we focus on how we manage our money, as opposed to how we've made it in the first place. Setting aside for the moment the issue of inherited wealth and lottery winnings, think of all the different kinds of work there are and the different kinds of compensation they offer. And is the work easy or difficult? Fun or boring? Some people stay in the same job for years, others have done all kinds of crazy things to make a buck. I was surprised to see a friend's listing of previous jobs which included gardener, fruit-picker, plasterer, PR manager, security guard, costumed fairy character, and several more that I never would have guessed at. Do you have any strange jobs in your past that don't relate to your current career? Which of them paid the best?
See if you can guess which of these things I have done to make money. You can vote for multiple answers if you want.
We'll see how the results look next week and I'll let you know which of these things I've actually done, and talk about what I earned. Whoever comments or emails me the most correct guess at my job history will earn the coveted "[your name here] is wicked awesome" banner at the top of this site for 2 weeks, which was previously enjoyed by Hazzard when he won the wine cork contest.
Good luck everyone!
