Default Careers/Positions that pay MORE than $250,000/year

What are some careers/positions that pay MORE than $250,000/year????

Okay......before anyone responds with "stupid" or obvious answers; I dont mean the typical response that most people would say like DOCTOR or CEO. No shirt!!!

I'm talking about those professions or positions that aren't largely publicized.

For example, I just learned that Certified Registered Nurse Anesthesia [CRNA] can make around a quarter of a million dollars. and thats for being a nurse with extra training and experience.

SO....what positions make more than $250k/year. It is greatly appreciated if you could be specific as possible and exclude any MD positions. (ie...lawyer..but what type of lawyer and at what stage in his/her career, etc)

Thanks.

to make really any more than 150k you have to be:
- Doctor
- Lawyer
- CEO / Executive / Entrepreneur
- Finance / Banker
- Consultant (IT, Marketing, etc)
- Commissioned Salesperson

In general, there are really no wage-earner jobs that will pay you 250k.

I agree with the above. To make that much you generally have to generate the salary yourself as compared to getting paid for the work you do, if that makes sense.

Agree with all... I think bottom line... any work that AVERAGES above 100k is usually not something one would just "do this and that" and get the job out of the box. It doesn't mean that the job isn't hard once you get it (i.e. unstressful)... but getting there is no cake either. Otherwise, everyone and their aunts will be doing that work.
