Many different types of physicians, physical therapist, occupational therapist, ultrasound technicians, nurses, nurse practitioners and pharmacists work part-time, full-time, weekend or evening hours and all pay well. There are time, educational and financial investments required to have a career any of these fields, however.

Hi Mia!

Although the path to becoming a dentist is quite vigorous and expensive, general dentists (and dental specialists i.e. orthodontists, oral surgeons, etc.) typically make a desirable salary with lots of flexibility in their work schedule. As a dentist, you can choose to work as much or as little as you would like: part-time, full-time....you can even become your own practice owner and set your own business hours. The price of dental school is very high, but if you view it as an investment in your career and you are willing to pay off a monthly student loan balance as if it were any other monthly bill, you can live a financially secure and socially flexible lifestyle. You can pay for dental school entirely with student loan money as well, so you don't need to worry about having a side job to make tuition payments while you are in dental school. Happy to answer any questions you may have.

So you mean everyone's total dream job? Sign me up! Sadly, close to none. Jobs with high pay are often the most demanding and were not easy to navigate, hence why they are high paying. When you see adults making a lot of money and seem to be never working, they either worked very hard to get to that place or have been doing wonders with the stock market.

If you're looking to make your own hours, look into starting your own business such as hair, esthetician, real estate, contract work (i.e. logo design), selling a product. Also start investing now to get your money moving and working for you!

Fred’s Answer

My guess would be not many. Jobs are much like commodities. There is a supply and demand relationship. If lots of people want the job, the salary/benefits go down. If jobs are harder to fill (i.e. no supply of workers), the salary/benefits go up.

If a job is "easily navigated", has flexible hours, then lots of people will want it, and the salary would go down.

So you've got two competing concepts here that work against each other.

My advice would be to not worry too much about getting a high paying job. I'd rather have a lower paying job i enjoy than a higher paying job i hate.
Thank you comment icon Fred's answered the question perfectly, I've had jobs that paid 6 figures that I was miserable doing, as an entrepreneur I've made 6 figures but even then I enjoyed my work, I made my own hours but as far as flexible no I worked even more hours. The fact is that you have to find a balance in providing for yourself and family and just money. The chase for just money is a 24 hour quest, there will always be a reason you could use more money you have to decide what your mental health, your physical well being and quality of life are worth to you. Find what you enjoy be the best you can be at that and the rest will fall into place. Sylvester Jackson
