18. Celebrity Agent
These are the people who promote the careers of celebrities. Those who do it best can earn as much as the celebrities they promote. They use their talents and industry connections to help their clients find work and negotiate deals for them. The more experience they have in business deal-making, negotiating and accounting, the better off they are. Having a good celebrity agent can make all the difference to a celebrity.
Many celebrity agents start out as the personal assistant of a celebrity agent. They learn how the job is done and start developing a contact list. They also build up relationships with clients. It helps if they have some kind of education in marketing and business. A celebrity agent often wears many hats as responsibilities can vary from day to day. They may even have to offer advice and provide a shoulder to cry on.
Celebrity agents often need a great deal of patience as celebrities can be divas with some insane requests. There’s nothing quite like the world of Hollywood to bring out the worst in some people. However, many celebrity agents are more than just business managers to stars. Some of them become very close to their clients, but at the end of the day, they are in charge of making them as successful as possible.
The pay of a celebrity agent, just like any other job, is based on factors such as education level and experience. The salary is obviously much lower if you’re a newbie with no experience under your belt. After a few years of experience, they can expect to make about $62,000. In rare circumstances, a bonus based on client earnings can turn a mid-level agent into a top earner
So the next time you judge a guy for his dirty pants, chances are, he makes more money than you. These loser jobs all give a value which is one of the essential ways to make a lot of money. Finding a way to give value to something will always be credited. Some things may take perseverance in order to get the big financial gains but in trades, you usually make money as you go.
The jobs that offer prestige like an architect, doctor, or lawyer might be revered but they tend to come at a high cost. The schooling, the debt, making your way to the top, and the pressure versus the average Joe who learns how to do something really well with no education.
What kind of person are you? If you’re good with your hands and are more about street smarts than book smarts, one of these lucrative loser jobs might be perfect for you. Even if you’re not a loser.
