The average Australian spends 1728 hours a year at work.
For a lot of people, the thought of being chained to a desk for that amount of time is seriously depressing. But rest assured, while most of us do in fact have to work (because of that whole money doesn’t grow on trees thing), that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to slave away in a monotonous job you hate.
If the thought of a 9-5 desk job makes you want to sob into your morning coffee, why not think outside the box and consider one of the following.
1. Tour Guide.
You know that exciting feeling you get about your city when you show out-of-towners around? Why not do that every day?
You’ll get fit walking the streets and learn facts about your city that you never knew. You’ll get to meet new, exciting people every day and spend your time listening to travel stories and enlightening people about all the history of your city.
Plus, your friends will love that you have the inside scoop on all the great places to watch the fireworks on New Years, sample the best gelato and hear some great underground music.

Ok, so I kind of lied a bit with this one. There may be a desk involved during the editing process, but generally, being a photographer allows you to immerse yourself in some pretty awesome situations.
You’ll be involved in the happiest times of people’s lives with weddings, engagements, birthdays and babies and have the opportunity to travel the globe and see the wonders of the world from behind the lens.
Or, you could devote your life to chasing Bieber and his yellow Lamborghini around LA. If that’s your thing.
If you don’t mind the early morning starts, being a florist is a pretty sweet deal. (Get it?)
