For many and most of us, the American Dream can be defined as becoming as wealthy as possible and achieve whatever we can in our lives, a journey from rags to riches. However, it’s an underlying fact that those who do achieve this went through considerable amount of hardships on their way to the top. But somewhere in the middle of daydreamers and achievers lies a catch for those who are not willing to give up on their wits and play it smart, knowing that they can win it all for sure. Well, time and time again, many have proved that there is not just one way to go about achieving what you desire the most; in fact, there are many ways to get to what you want and where you want it. Here is a list for those who haven’t given up the good fight and still believe in the dream, a list of jobs that oddly pay well.
1. Crab Fisherman
Braving the stormy seas and struggling through below freezing temperatures of the Alaskan Waters, comes a story of men who make $50,000 in 8 weeks time. That’s the average American salary for a year in just two months. An expert and experienced crab fisherman can make as much as a hundred grand in a year which puts most advanced degree holders, skilled labor to shame. That’s a lot of money in crabs.
Seen by many as treating a necessary evil, dealing with patients having digestive problems isn’t a career one would preferably choose for its insights at the most. Making always the same routine procedures which everybody on the planet dreads about makes it highly unlikely for people to even consider this as a career opportunity. However regardless of the job description, a gastroenterologist can earn as much as $269,500 per year. Welcome to the Upper Class sir and we don’t mind that gas mask of yours.
If looking at peoples heels, rubbing their ankles and giving their foot massages ever looked appealing to you then it should so even more, because a Podiatrist makes as much as $149,527 annually. That’s the salary equivalent to person who has educational attainment and is a graduate degree holder, correctly so a member of the upper class in US.
They say there is always a light at the end of a tunnel, sure there is for a Proctologist after a couple of years. Ubiquitously known as the ‘Butt Doctor’ and charged with diagnosing patients with problems around the rectum or anus area, you will be more displeased by your patients then they are with their conditions. Nevertheless thrusting forward along your with your trusty proctoscope, dogging past severe constipation and even anal cancer (in rare cases), sits the jackpot of $226,000 per year. Who said this world is all about gold diggers, at least there are now new things to dig for which are as good as any! This world is all about achievement and one can do so in the right direction.
