    black jack dealing.

    you don't need to take any classes. but if you want to, it's from 2k to 6k. all it takes is a good background and credit and an audition. well, they just don't want bandits or anyone in a lot of debt. you can go to a casino to watch how they deal. learn the basic rules. learn the payouts. learn the terms. it's not that hard. it just takes a lot of practice to get fast and smooth.

    it would also look good on your résumé. you'd make a lot of tips. and you can always move up. and there are casinos everywhere. it's really fun. every black jack dealer i know makes atleast $80 a year part time.

    Get a degree in Recreation and become a cruise director on an ocean liner. Only have to work 6 months a year, get to visit wonderful ports of call, get to play games all day and you make really good money. Not to mention meeting all those attractive, single passengers.

    Master of Ceremonies (MC) on Cruise Ships

    The guy who FILMS all those extreme skiers (the guy filming is in front of them,skiing backwards down the hill)

    Zamboni Driver.....okay, don't think it pays a lot, but a great conversation starter at parties....

    Tree planter in northern Canada....the work is seasonal and watch out for bears....

    Oil Rig worker (on ocean platforms)

    Carpenter for the film industry....

    Ski lift operator/ Ski instructor...work is seasonal....

    Massuse...need training and is better if you are a people person....

    Dog walker.....great if you love dogs, like being your own boss and have a big car to cart them off to the park in...

    Paid Companion....seriously....families pay people to go and visit their elderly loved ones in nursing homes or at their own homes... should be a people person....

    Personal Asisstant.....Great job if you like keeping other peoples lives organized and running smoothly...check your city or town for a professional personal asisstant's organization to see what the standards are or google it on the net.

    Remote Sensing.....need to take a course....is a field that deals with geological surveying of areas difficult to physical access. Pays well. (Three of my cousins took the course in Nova Scotia, Canada.)

    Writer (my sister) not such a profitable choice, Actor (me) even less money....

    I've heard that air traffic controllers make great money. If you're looking for a newer field, what about biomedical engineering ? If you like dealing with people, you might enjoy party planning or event coordination.
