Put big jobs together with big people, at about the rate at which an elephant gestates.
$$: $250,000 a year and up.
The upside: Big, formerly successful people come to you on their knees, begging for a lift back onto the gravy train.
The downside: You're a human resources professional.
The dark side: Sitting with people who really need you, and you know you can't help them. That bothers even you at times, admit it.
