6. Client Services Manager: $80K – $100K+ And A Bonus
The average starting salary is about $80,000 and when you factor in a bonus, that’s almost six figures. If you can pick the area you want to work in, look for lucrative positions with top private equity firms and hedge funds. As you climb the corporate ladder, you’ll quickly make six figures, can enjoy the benefits of a 401(k) matching in most firms, will get great bonuses each year and you get to socialize with high net worth clients. Yup, that means lots of party invites and weekends in the Hamptons.
7. Handyman: $100K+ And A Bonus
While you might not think a handyman can make a lot of money, on the contrary, they can start out making six figures if they work for a high net worth couple. Take a position as a “houseman” or “domestic couple” with your spouse and you’re well on your way. Bonuses come in from your end of year bonus. Ensure you have an attorney who can help you with contract negotiations when you first get hired and you’ll be seeing subsequent end of year perks for a long time to come. Expect to be on call, but there’s lots of great travel when working for wealthy families and celebrities.
With so many great jobs, be sure to tap into all the education you can to manage your money. You may even want to consider investing some of all that money you’re making.
