What if you hate your job? But you can't quit, because you need the dough. Rent, food, going out with friends, it all costs money. 

This project, 50-50, is an attempt to find 50 very different ways of making some cash. It's not a sustainable career choice, but it does show that one person can make money a lot of different ways, if only with a bit of invention.

I'm looking for the most random jobs around, so if you have one for me (or know someone who has) then I want to hear from you!

I'll be turning my experiences from this project into a little book, which I hope at some point will find a home next to toilets (and in Christmas stockings) all over the world!

So far I've earned £50 a number of different ways, including stacking several thousand magazines with Beckham's face on, giving a public talk at the same time as stopping the marquee blowing away in a hurricane, designing a (really bad) logo, running a bootcamp and zookeeping for a day. 

What's next? Have you got a job for me?!
