Ice Cream Scooper in the Caribbean
This one isn’t all about the money, really. A young New Yorker told Cosmopolitan that she quit her 95k a year job to scoop ice cream for 10 bucks an hour in the Caribbean. She said ”But the truth is, I was happier scooping mint chocolate chip for $10 an hour than I was making almost six figures at my previous corporate job. It was calming to work with my hands. I met new people constantly, talking face-to-face instead of communicating via email and instant messaging”. This falls nicely under the category “Things that money can’t buy”.
