Synopsis:

Occupations that require individualism, creativity, and even eccentricity are much more common than most people realize. For people who have never fit the corporate mold and want to go their own route, Careers for Nonconformists is an essential handbook. Sandra Gurvis reviews the nuts and bolts of being one's own boss. She showcases 75 jobs and touches on dozens more within 15 areas of interest, from animals and the outdoors to entertainment and arts and crafts. She covers what it takes to break into a field, what to expect, and what people will need to do to thrive. The book includes complete reference information on professional associations, Web sites, trade magazines, and other useful resources, as well as 30 profiles of real people who have succeeded in unusual endeavors.
