Kids, anything really is possible these days if you dream it. For example, these days you can get paid thousands of dollars to drink beer, or you could even make a living cutting fancy ham.
Just ask Florencio Sanchidrián, who was working as a waiter in a Barcelona kitchen 30 years ago, when their in-house ham cutter got sick. His manager asked him to step in. He started slicing that jamon like a duck in sodium-rich water. After Sanchidrián found his calling, he never looked back.
Three decades later, and the Spaniard -- referred to by the New York Times as a "rock star of ham" -- is charging upwards of $4,000 just to cut a single leg, and he's done it for Oscar winners (Robert De Niro), presidents (Obama), and even royalty (the king of Spain).
