This book is a compilation of things I've tried, jobs I've had, freelance gigs, life experiences and some crazy new things on my bucket list. I hope you find your dream gig, your new career or discover a hobby that pays."

Just a few of the jobs that Holmes takes a look at is how to be a professional food taster or a blogger, how to make or sell jewelry, how to be a professional organizer, a bike tour guide, a brewmaster, a phone actress, a zamboni driver, traveling artist and more.
