Ernie Zelinski has penned Career Success Without A Real Job (Ten Speed Press) out this June and says you dont have to work for The Man to have a lucrative life.
He was fired 25 years ago from his engineering job for taking too much vacation time and has since written 15 books, making good money by only working five hours a day.
Zelinski recommends not having a real job because you can sleep until noon every day and dont have to be stuck in a cubicle.
He says avoiding the corporate world makes people more creative, and surprisingly, there are lots of unreal jobs out there.
The greatest ones include consulting of any kind, freelance writing, or being a movie critic, personal coach, publicist, mime, psychic, or stunt performer.
Zelinski argues that getting fired is a blessing and notes that many successful entrepreneurships Microsoft, General Electric, and Sports Illustrated were born during economic downturns.
