I have a buddy who has a shit-picking business. I shit you not.

$25/month to go to a house once a week and pick up dog turds in the lawn.

He's even got a couple parks and "dog parks".

Think of the fishing you could do.
This^^ I'm getting ready to start my 3 month vacation. And having that on the horizon gets you through most anything. Plus I teach a 1 credit hour fly fishing course in the summer. I found a way to get paid to fish. I suppose my students learn something, can't say for sure, busy fishing!

Actually a new trending position is a "Wellness manager" for a lot of commercial insurance companies. Go around to the groups that are insured and tell them to work out and be healthy etc... Cake job, however i don't recall seeing any pictures of you as it helps to be fairly in shape for that gig.

Probably not. Each year the radio group I work for sponsors a "Bridal Expo" in the fall and a "Women's Expo" in the spring. It is my personal hell to have to work them. Invariably a good percentage of the booths we sell are to multi level marketing diet products like "it works", Mellaluca (sp?) and other hocus pocus about losing weight by wrapping yourself in saran wrap and taking magic herbs. These booths are always manned by fat chicks with huge asses. I never understood how these chicks can claim to have the magic potion to good health and weight loss when they look like the evil love child of Rosie Odonnell and John Goodman. And yet insecure hot chicks with daddy issues line up to but the shit.

My deal I mentioned there are no gimmicks and its a great new position that is becoming very popular. Just meet with the client groups and promote good health and exercise, to the groups that the company already has insured.

The health insurance industry is doing everything they can to lower claims and get people in a healthier mind set.

I know this because an ex of mine did this and it was a killer gig that paid decent. Just have to be able to speak in public in front of large groups and come up with some shit that sounds good so they can he healthier.

Send him to my place.

I have a King's ransom worth of dog shit stacked up from the winter that ain't picking itself up in my back yard.

I'll pay his travel, room and board, meals, incidentals.

I'm serious.
