What self employment careers are there?
« on: August 21, 2011, 11:13:34 AM »
I am planing a project and I would like to know all the self employment career options there are. I am thinking of anything that makes money that does not involve going into a rabbit hole.

Thanks in advance.

Gardening, fishing, inventing, painting, sculpting. There might be more but that's all I can think of right now.

Do you mean just "official" self-employment where your Sim registers at City Hall as self-employed?  Or are you also thinking of other ways of making money like breaking boards, etc?

In addition to the ones Sportsfan listed, I'm pretty sure your sim can be a self-employed nectar maker.

I think creating a band is also some kind of self-employment.

Thank you for the suggestions I was also thinking of anything that makes your Sim money board breaking would be one. Of the top of my head hacking and kleptomania comes to mind too.

So far I have
Angler.
Band.
Board breaker.
Collecting.
Gardening.
Gold digger.
Hacking.
Inventing.
Klepto.
Musician.
Mixologist.
Mooch.
Nectar maker.
Painter.
Photographer.
Sculpture.
Writer.

Let me know if I have missed any.

Like Chronic said, Band, it is different from musician I think you should add it,  you could also add Gold digger (marrying rich sim, then killing them / kicing them out ) , mooching ? solving the unsolvable ?  that's all I can think of now

I'm thinking collector should be in the at one with nature category. It's not exactly a lazything to do.

Yeah, that's what I thought to because lazy people don't exactly run around town looking for rocks.

I don't think you've got playing for tips on the list.  Not sure what category it would fit into.

I think playing for tips is a sub-category of Party Animal, musician. Great list Rachel.

Amb professions are not rabbitholes so they might fit into this. Also, transfiguration on Carter displey.

Yes, you can register at City Hall as an Alchemist. It's an easy career to max as well.

There are also those dancing sunflowers that cost 75 and the suns they produce can sell for either 100 or 90 each and they keep on producing the suns. If you let them produce for a while and then sell them in one go, you can make a fair bit of money from them. Alternatively they seem to make good fertilizer.

I use the suns to boost the mood of infants and toddlers. Just put a fresh one in their inventory, and they're good for 18 hours.
