I am a free spirit. Either admire me from the ground or fly with me.”

In the modern era of intensive competition, it is challenging for a free-spirited/bohemian/hippie to get a secure job, stable life and adequate income.  You may have an allergy to dress code and schedule life style, or you just want flexibility in your work. As a bohemian person, you want to spend a free life with adventures and want to have new experiences. However, you also need to remember that you have to pay the bills. For that, you need to find out the most suitable hippie career path.

“Trying to tame a free spirit is like telling the wind to stop blowing.”

The only thing that free spirited people want is to find out a way to make ends meet. Following are ten career options that will allow you to be flexible and apply their creativity into practice.
