Well, there is all kinds of stuff you can get into...depends on what you mean by "job" and "for a living".
I mean, a lot of people are caught up in the idea that a "job" means work in exchange for bits of paper that you can then trade for goods and services. And, "a living" means without those bits of paper you won't be allowed to have that which you need to live.
Of course, there are tons of "jobs" that don't fall under the standard umbrella of "employment" but still get you bits of paper; and tons of other "jobs" that skip the paper thing completely and jump directly to the "living" part of "for a living".
Working "off the grid" keeps a lot of us busy, and fed. Homesteads, like "Shut Up and Grow It" offer "a living" in exchange for work, street medics and Katuah medics offer free healthcare and survive on donations , free traveling kitchens like "Everybodies Kitchen" also a donation driven "job" (they were feeding Sandy victims day one, Long before FEMA got it together) Camps and retreats all over seek skilled instructors for various seminars and activities: building with cob, edibile wild plants, horse back riding, etc.
Midwifery is taught at The Farm midwives commune by anarchists.
The internet has opened up resorces like Etsy to artists and crafters all over, providing mass market access to individuals. Up-cycling and re-purposing, sewing, sculpting, distilling, baking...and much more is happening outside the standard "employment".
There is no end to what we can do, or how we can "work for a living". Imagination, creativity, and resourcefulness is a job and a living for many of us. I'm working, I get paid in whatever I ask for. I'm helping a women create a functioning homestead...I'm also building a mobile minihome, teaching someone how to make and set-up a tipi, and doing some fishing. I can leave any of the projects whenever I want, return whenever I want, and all my needs are met. No little bits of paper changes hands though. No contract. No obligation. Just hard work for its own sake, because it is serving a need.
