My wife just recently entered the work force after a about a 15 year absense. She has found a terrific job that could fit the bill for someone who is FIRE'd and just interested in making a little extra money and having fun at the same time. She works 15-20 hours per week at a local Curves. Curves is a women's only workout facility with a unique and effective approach to getting woman into a regular excercise routine, healthy eating and healthy lifestyle.

The positives: feels like she is really helping people; part-time; she works out with the women and gets paid in the process; the social interaction with women in her town has been good for her; she has fun while working.

The negatives: $8 an hour plus some small commissions; she has to work some nights.

It does pay for the groceries and some entertainment for my family of 5.

She comes home beaming after her shift is done every day. She has lost weight and is getting very fit. I can now see some muscle definition in her legs and arms.

Here is their web site: http://www.curvesinternational.com/
