Make Your Own Hours and Be Able to Travel With These Jobs

Travel Blogging

Work can be such a drag. Nobody was created to work a 9 to 5, five days out of the week, but for some reason, everybody puts up with it. The average American actually works more than the standard and allotted 40 hours a week. When you factor in driving to and from work as well as the prep done on the side to ensure that everything can be accomplished while you’re on the clock, the time put in for work is realistically closer to 50 hours a week.

When you only have 168 hours in a week and you spend 50 of those hours at work and another 56 hours sleeping, that means you’re only left with 62 hours in a week to get other life activities and responsibilities taken care of. That’s not a lot of time to do something with. Most of the time people spend their time off recouping and preparing for another long week at work.

If you’re tired of the typical 9 to 5 work grind and you want to be able to make your own hours and travel while you work, try looking into these jobs:Hair stylist

With any job there is going to be training that goes into getting you ready to take the world by storm with your skill set, but if you’re smart about what you choose to do, the training doesn’t have to look the way you think it does. If you’re a creative person who likes the idea of doing hair, you can get trained up in a relatively short amount of time.

Once you’ve developed your skill, it’s your choice whether you book a spot in a salon or hit the road. Try the latter. You know the food trucks that travel around? Well, do the same thing with hair. Go from city to city, offer up a service, and see who bites. You’re sure to get a lot of business, you’ll be able to make your own hours and you’ll get to travel. Plus, nobody really does it, so you’ll have a leg up on the market.Freelance writer
