9. Furniture Upholsterer

Average annual income: $29,960

If you’re a furniture upholsterer, chances are, you’re doing something you love — not just getting a job to pay the bills. Plus, clients actively seek you out — they aren't forced to work with you like that guy in the cube next to you — and they have a problem you can fix.

Not to mention — you make your own hours, and chances are that just about every sales transaction ends with a “Thank you, I greatly appreciate it!”
