Well, people work because they're looking for monetary income, in order to sustain themselves... The complete uselessness of conlanging can't be dismissed, which is what makes me admire those that have succeeded in getting far with them.

Uselessness?! I must disagree. Conlanging is both an art and an academic endeavor. Are these things useless pursuits as well?

Conlangs (specifically IALs) are useless in the sense that they fall far sort of their goal as a medium of communication. But I have no problem with creating them solely for enjoyment. It's not my proverbial cup of tea but there are probably worse ways to pass one's time.
