Fun Jobs That Pay Well

List Criteria: The best jobs that are fun and pay over 40k a year.

Americans spend much of their adult life at work – usually they spend more time at work than with family or friends. If quality of life is important to you, it may be a good idea to find a career that is actually fun for you most of the time. No job will be fun every day, but if you generally like what you do for work then "you will never work a day in your life" (according to an old saying). Since different people have different ideas of "fun," the careers on this list are diverse. Some people think that the best jobs in the world are those that require a lot of office time, while others prefer high-paying flexible jobs. What are fun careers to have that also pay well?

Some of the top-paying gigs on this list are easy jobs that pay well, such as a medical test subject or a professional video game player. To get these jobs, generally, you just need to know how to find them and get lucky. Other jobs on this list take years of education and specialty training – such as an astronaut or a master sommelier – but once you get the position, you are rewarded with one of the most fun, well-paying jobs for women and men.
