Are your intellectual pursuits are so wide and varied that you have the knowledge of a winning game show contestant? Naturally, you can try out to appear on a game show. But even without going on Jeopardy, you can make money with your knowledge.

Notably too, your knowledge doesn’t have to be wide to make this work. If you have deep knowledge about one specific topics — 401(k) plans, for instance — you can make great money by only answering game show-like questions in that narrow field.

Where do you find work answering questions like you were on a game show?
