A Dog Training Career? A career as a Pet Sitter? Nahhh…after all how will I pay the bills? Most of us probably sit in the office all day, slaving away at a desk in front of a computer, mindlessly typing, or surfing Facebook now and again. When I was a kid I remember seeing Joe Vs. The Volcano with Tom Hanks and thinking…is that really what the corporate life is like? or fast forward about 10 years and renting Office Space (by then I was already in the office during the dotcom years).
Now maybe you’re thinking I wish I could work outside in the fresh air and leave the corporate blues (remember the blue fluorescent glow from Joe vs the vocano…not to mention my office walls are painted blue).
Fear not corporate soldier because I just read an article about What America Earns during this recession and one salary in particular – the Pet Sitter – shines a ray of hope.
