The mod will help you create a lot of unique stories and achieve awesome milestones in your sim’s life. It is a very freeing mod, in our opinion.

The job requires logic and charisma skills from a sim, but it will give him or her many simoleons in return. Salute to the genius of numbers in The Sims 4!
5. Self-Employment Career
Being a business owner is a very good way for your sim to make some cash and be with their family more often.

This job fills up your career panel, and now your sim is self-employed, and you can give him as many tasks as you want or run the business with more official status. This mod was created for role-playing, but we can see a lot of areas you can use it in The Sims 4.
