"My first six years in the business were hopeless. There are a lot of times when you sit and you say "Why am I doing this? I'll never make it. It's just not going to happen. I should go out and get a real job, and try to survive."
— George Lucas 

If you want to experience real success without a real job, look for a dream job or an unreal job where the normal concerns don’t apply. An unreal job is one in which we don’t have to worry about achievement factors such as status, power, financial rewards, and advancement opportunities.

Equally important, an unreal job is hard to differentiate from leisure; it’s an opportunity to work at something for the personal satisfaction of doing it well and having loads of fun at the same time. At its best, a cool, unreal job is something that you would happily work at — or play at — for no pay.

Today there are more opportunities to work at unreal jobs than any time in history because of changing lifestyles and an incredible number of niche markets.

In Career Success Without a Real Job I list 100 of the World's Coolest UnReal Jobs that lend themselves to escaping traditional corporate life. There are many other interesting ways to make an unconventional living, however. The following stand out:
