    I work for a well known DIY retailer on the shopfloor - 20 hours a week at minimum wage. It's loads of money for me and enough to live on quite happily. And although the rota can be a bit shit the job has no stress whatsoever and the people I work with are very friendly and relaxed.

    I daytrade the stockmarket. I haven't made my millions yet, but it's kept me out of the rat race for a while so far. Here's an office from last year:

    I'm not able to work, nor do I wish to because my illness won't allow it, and I enjoy my freedom =) The only "work" I do is helping people out with themselves.
    Love everyone, even those who hate you, because they need your love the most.

    I'm a Doula for Life

    I support people by meeting them where they are at in their lives with whatever they need support with. At the moment I've just come off call from supporting at a homebirth, I have regular earlyyears child-care clients and am the admin/secretarial support for a friend's business. Later in the year I'll be collaborating with the same friend on writing an end of life doula course. I'm hoping to take on a few clients that have adult care needs soon. I love the variety of my work

    £50,000?Yeah I wish UJ! I work for a Bakery Manufacturer,started on agency,on a production line.Was made perm 18 mths ago,and then was asked to become a H&S Officer.I guess they figured as I had previously worked as a Catering Manager for the NHS,I may have needed something abit more "substantial"to do!lol In reality I was actually quite happy working on a production line,but was told on the grapevine that if I declined the offer of H&S Officer,the manager could make my life,well not so nice,so I reluctantly agreed to it.......for now anyway.
