Requirements to be a taxi driver are going to differ depending on where you live. Generally once “hired” by a taxi company, you pay them to lease a taxi cab and keep the money from the fares.
Driving a taxi can sometimes be dangerous and the hours long depending on the company you’re with. Try and get a feel of the company by talking to some other drivers. As a taxi driver you are to a certain extent self employed so a huge amount of your success falls on you.
Annual Salary Range: $18,000 – $66,000
Real Estate Broker
Are you good at dealing with people? Do you have a passion for sales? If you do then perhaps a real estate career is your calling.

Being a real estate broker is among the best paying of jobs that you can get with a minimal amount of professional skills. Again, it does require hard work to succeed.
Annual Salary Range: You decide!
You don’t need any formal experience to be a bartender but you should strongly consider completely a bar tending course at your local community center. Bar-tending is an extremely fast paced job and completing the course will at least make employers more likely to hire you.
Again this is a job with low qualifications needed to join, therefore if you do get hired as one you should use the opportunity to work your way up within the company.
Annual Salary Range: $14,000 – $48,000
School Bus Driver
If you have the patience to be up at the crack of dawn with a bunch of young kids then this may be the job for you. School bus drivers require little qualifications aside from a valid and clean driver’s license.
Most bus drivers work a route in the morning and one again in the afternoon. This can turn into a long term position with benefits.
