Today, CNN, with CareerBuilder.com, publishes a list of 10 "cushy" jobs. What strikes us about the list is that every item is predominantly the province of independent workers. A few examples:

  • Cheese artisan
  • Handwriting analyst
  • Pet psychic There are also some more common professions, such as consultant and professional organizer. Although, after reading The Mammoth Cheese, we don't think anyone would call the labor-intensive craft of artisanal cheesemaking "cushy."
