People who hit the gym regularly to either lose weight or gain muscle need someone
to supervise their workout. This is where a personal trainer comes in. You will design
a training program for your client to follow. If he fails to follow the program, then the

all the dirty work and lifting, and get paid regardless if he follows the plan to the letter
or not.

For those adept in music, being a songwriter can definitely help pay the bills. You do
not even need to know the technical side of music, as a lot of musicians are known
to play things by ear. Some do not even know how to read a musical note. But for
those who are really good, a little inspiration is all that is needed to complete and
finalize a song. Music artists can then use this for commercial release. If it proves to
be popular, you can expect to earn royalties for several years. Just watch the Hugh
Grant movie called “About a Boy.” The main character was living off the royalty of
just one song that became a hit years before.

background and aromatic incense or oil heightening the ambiance of the place. That
is the exact atmosphere that massage therapists experience every single working
day. They are paid to relieve the stress of clients, so it is important that they feel
stress-free as well. Otherwise, the tension might transfer to the customer they are
massaging. All you need to become one is a license after attending a massage
therapy program from a recognized center. Starting salary is around $24,200, but
once you become an expert, expect to earn as much as $51,400.

if you are a geek and computer nerd. But for those who are indeed adept with high
tech toys and gadgets, this job is a dream. Social interaction is highly limited and
all you have to do is sit in front of the computer and create the code for the latest
software or games. You can actually do this on your own, but if you prefer to work
for software development companies, you will be expected to have a degree in
computer programming or computer engineering. The job pays really well and you
can even hit the jackpot if you get to invent a program or game that everybody would
love. Think Candy Crush, Temple Run, Angry Birds or Plants vs. Zombies and the
millions that the creators of those games now have.

broken through, the money will start flowing in.
