Which job is a LOT less fun than most people expect?

Hobby/passion jobs tend to involve a lot of shitty work for not much money.

Don't get a job just based just on your hobbies.

Actually look at what the work involves. What the average day looks like. And then factor that against the pay.

To take an example:

Snowboard instructors get paid shit, and spend their days sideslipping down the beginner slope and saying encouraging things to tourists. Then they spend their paycheck at the bar, go to sleep, and start the process again.

Snow town bartenders get to ride all day, serve a few drinks in the evening, and go to bed at the same time as the instructors, while drinking for free. They don't get that fancy uniform, but they get more time on the slope and a lot more money.

Just be smart about it. Whatever the job, dig deep, and find out what it actually entails.
