"Don't like working a boring 9-to-5 grind, sitting at a Dilbert cube desk under buzzing fluorescents, managing paper, or being a cog in a big assembly line machine five days a week? Then don't! Hundreds of thousands of nonconformists are earning a living in the niches oftoday's lousy economy with fun, unusual, and even weird money-making methods you never knew existed. This book will get you started on a path you'll enjoy: making money in fun, little-known ways with little cost or little training needed." —Danny Welsh, Internet entrepreneur, RealDealCommunity.com
Drinking on the job, stealing cars, and mopping up blood and guts might seem like terrible ways to make a living, but there's plenty of profit potential in brewing beer, repossessing automobiles, and cleaning up crime scenes. Smart, creative people have already made millions of dollars chasing geese off golf courses and selling virtual real estate. A master of many weird trades, Steve Gillman shares his secrets for turning strange jobs into moneymakers.
Using interviews with unconventional entrepreneurs, the author's own wide-ranging experience with weird jobs, and extensive research, 101 Weird Ways to Make Money reveals fun, sometimes dirty, occasionally dangerous, yet incredibly profitable jobs and businesses. If you're looking for work that suits your independent spirit and frees you from bosses and corporate cube farms, this book delivers 101 alternative ventures along with the keys to making them wildly successful.

As a former career counselor, I'm always matching people in my head to jobs I think would fit them. This gives me even more clues to work with. Sometimes I share these thoughts with the people I'm thinking about. Plus it would be a good conversation starter if a group runs out of things to talk about during a boring after meeting lunch. Like "Hey, does anyone have some crickets they can't get rid of? I'm starting a farm and would be glad to take them off your hands." I would especially recommend this book to anyone who is starting college or who is retired and wants to get out and be social and make a little on the side. I've actually thought about a couple of these weird ones myself.
I once had a brilliant (or so I thought) idea for a web sight and series of books. Weird Jobs for a Livelihood, or something like that. I even began lining up interviews. Then...
I found this book. Steve Gilman has provided a terrific introduction to the subject. I found myself wanting to try my hand at at least a dozen of his suggestions.
I hope he will do a sequel, say, 101 More Weird Ways to Make Money.
I want to add that the writing, editing, and research is impeccable.
