    IDK, I have friends that are bartender and that shit involves a lot of preparation for setting the bar, and them clean all after they are finish, every night.

    Being a barber, you barely have to clean and doing that kind of shit.

    You're right. I never thought of it like that but there really isn't a whole lot of bartending in being, as you say, a barber. Is there?

    Not going to lie, it appeals to me doing a creative craft and feeling fulfilled by doing so. But im happy with the job I have.

    Being fulfilled at work is overrated.

    Bartender.

    It's a really cool job, and you get a lot of pussy.

    Not barber but hairstylist in upscale salon that I would own.
    I love hair styles and particularly making my own gender look good (no homo).
    But being low paid barber that cuts the hair of every hobo out there (props to my barber...), no thanks.

    I know a hair stylists where I live, that owns his own salon and literally spends 1/4 of the year travelling in exotic locations (and rest of the year works like hell). Its a cool life. Better than 9-5.

    Barman is very cool too (did it) but I only like it in calm lounge style bars. Not parties. Fuck that (drunk arrogant assholes...)

    Yeah bot professions are something you can be good at, and open your place. Altough a bar surely is way more lucrative.

    That's true. I didn't think about it under that angle.
    The thing about opening a bar is that it probably takes massive guts and it can be exhausting.
    But its an interesting idea for sure.

    I actually want to work in a coffee shop. I will look for places to study for barista as soon I establish myself.
