When it comes to the jobs we do, traditionally we’ve been told to always look for the ones that pay the most, and given the economy we live in this is definitely a piece of advice that’s quite understandable. However, it’s more than possible to have a job that, not only pays well, but is one where you have fun, too.  The thing is, you’re going to be spending a lot of time working in your life, possibly in the same or similar jobs, so it’s definitely something you need to be able to enjoy properly and not feel like you’re giving up your life for something you hate.

So, if you’ve been struggling to find a job that you not only like, but that pays well, then in this post we’re going to help you with just that by sharing with you some of the best high paying jobs that are also a lot of fun to do.

Personal trainer:

Although fitness has been a growing industry for many decades already, it really seems like right now is the time to be getting in on the action and joining this industry if you’re someone who’s interested in it. Not only because more and more people are starting to wake up to the fact that health and fitness go hand in hand are being more proactive about their approach to getting themselves fit, but because it’s one of the industries that’s seeing a massive increase in where people are willing to spend money in order to achieve the level of fitness they desire.

Of course if you’re someone who enjoys fitness, then this is definitely an area where you’ll find yourself having a lot of fun, and really it’s the perfect job if you want to have a good combination of fun and high salary.

When working as a personal trainer, you can either work as an employee for a place like a gym where you’ll have a set amount of customers booked in with you each day, or you can work for yourself and book your own clients. Either way, the earning potential is high, the fun factor is definitely there, and it’s a job that allows you to be creative since you’re going to be making things like personalized fitness and even nutrition plans for your clients.

Engineer:

Engineering is an industry that’s certainly been around for a long time, but the reason it stands out and is still one of the best careers to have in terms of fun and finance is because of how it’s allowed itself to move with the times instead of refusing to budge and staying stagnant like so many others did. Engineering is a very wide field, so whether it’s working as a computer engineer, a mechanical engineer, or even working in a more niche position where you design things like AdBlue tanks, there are really a lot of opportunities in engineering and they pay very well because engineers have to go through so much training and because their jobs are highly skilled and require a lot of attention to detail to ensure that things are made safely. So, if you’re looking for a secure job that, not only pays well, but is a lot of fun, then engineering could be a great choice for you.

Coach:

The coaching industry seems to have exploded in the past decade, and it’s certainly not going to be going away anytime soon, and in fact is set to grow even bigger over the next 5 years, so if you’re someone who loves to help people overcome challenges in their life by guiding them to find their own solutions then coaching could definitely be a good option.

One of the best things about working as coach is that you can pretty much work from anywhere and you can work with clients all over the world using your computer or phone thanks to the internet and social media making this far easier than it’s ever been.

You can set your own hours, set your own prices, work with interesting people and make a lot of money doing something that’s fun, satisfying and allows you the freedom and flexibility you want in life. Whether it’s coaching people on things like relationships, health, parenting, nutrition, business, or any other area, there are so many ways that you can help people as a coach these days.

We hope that this post has helped you identify some of the areas you may want to consider looking into if you’re in search of a job that’s high paying and also a lot of fun, and also shown you that you don’t have to choose between one or the other.
