3 Career Options For People That Want Complete Flexibility

Estimated reading time: 2 mins

There are so many people out there that are fed up with the 9 to 5 grind. It takes over their life and they feel that they don’t have enough spare time to do the things that they really enjoy in life. In some cases, it isn’t the schedule that people hate, it’s just the job itself. If they switch careers and start doing something that they are passionate about, they find that they don’t mind the 9 to 5 as much. But some people are looking for a career that lets them set their own schedule and leaves time for the other important things in life. If that sounds like you, check out some of these great careers for people that want a flexible schedule. 

Blogging

There are so many people out there that make a full-time living from running a blog, and they have complete control over their schedule. As long as you post regularly enough to keep your readers interested, you can spend your time however you like. Often, people’s hobbies are the focus of the blog, which means that you can pursue your passions and then earn money by documenting it on your site. However, it does take a long while to make a career out of blogging and you need to put a lot of work in so you can build a large enough following to make the blog profitable. A lot of people start their blog as a side project and build it over time, then leave their job when they are earning enough to sustain themselves. 

Driving Instructor

If you are a self-employed driving instructor, you can decide when you want to give lessons and fit work around your schedule. As long as you have a valid driving license, you can take a driving instructor training and get qualified. Then all you need to do is register as a self-employed instructor and start advertising your services. As long as you give enough lessons to cover your expenses, the rest of your time is free to do what you like. 

Personal Trainer 

If you like to stay fit and healthy and you regularly hit the gym, why not turn your passion for fitness into a flexible career? If you get certified as a personal trainer, you can start offering sessions at your local gym. In most cases, you will be self-employed and you can offer classes whenever it fits your schedule. You will have to pay a fee to the gym most of the time, but after that, everything you earn is yours. If you spend a lot of time in the gym and you are well known there, you should have no trouble finding your first clients. You can take further courses in things like nutrition and expand your services to increase your earning opportunities. 

If you want a career that offers complete flexibility so you can pursue your passions outside of work, these are some of the best options
