Corporate Chair Massage and Other Part Time Careers

Some people are just not hardwired for full time, long-term employment. They like to move around, change their hours. You might even say they have a short attention span.  So what – there are lots of lucrative career opportunities for those of a more creative and at times unfocused or mildly volatile nature. Here are 11 careers I found researching the web and in an article in the AAARP Bulletin Jan – Feb 2017.

Check out this list and see what works for you. I even tell you how to get stated and what skills you will need.

The term describes an alternative delivery practice of sending items from one place to another via independent traveler. Casual couriers usually have existing travel plans before agreeing to deliver a package for a sender. Casual couriers may receive a fee directly from the shipper for delivering a package to its destination. The casual courier’s fee is typically significantly lower than traditional overnight delivery services.  Delivery costs can be substantially reduced by using a casual courier and for the courier, carrying a package may help to subsidize the cost of a trip.

To do this you must be being a responsible person with good time management and lifehacking skills especially if flying. You must be sure that what you are transporting is legal.

  1. Chair Massage Therapist

Skills required: Massage or Bodywork

Time required: Pick your own hours and work from home. You may need a massage or cosmetology license depending upon the state or country you are in.

How to get started: Find out state laws concerning massage. Contact companies offering corporate chair massage. They are throughout the U.S.A so if you travel you may be able to find jobs. The best places for this work is in NYC, Chicago and Las Vegas or any city with large convention centers.
