    I buy poorly run companies then fix them up and sell them. Sometimes I break them up into smaller companies and sell them separately for more than the whole.

    I am the finder of rare and/or desirable things. Quite often with wheels on them but sometimes they’re just antiques but they can be modern or the first of something. Early production, low production etc. Is it a job?

    Did 30+ years as a military pilot/staff officer in the Reg Force. Now in the reserves and in double-dipping heaven(pension + salary) which funds the hobby for the time being. I had planned on paying off the mortgage early... Damn pinballs.. Picking up 2 more NIBs in a few weeks...

    Hopefully I can keep it up for another 8-9 years.

    I clean up peoples messes and get paid poorly for it. Yes, those kinds of messes too. But my gf also loves pinball, so I am rich in other ways.

    I was a mechanical engineer in heat transfer, but I went back to school at got a degree in Computer Science. The pay was better and the job opportunities went through the roof. I've written software for piles of companies. But after writing a system for generating denial letters for an insurance company, it was time to find a new job. Something about that just didn't sit right with me.

    Family owned business. We used to own a security installation business but sold to ADT a few years back.

    We currently own a wholesale distribution business of mechanical and electronic locking hardware. Since we switched focus from the install to wholesale we have been able grow it 20% a year. Much easier obviously less labor intensive business.

    Worked for the State Revenue Department in the audit division for most of 32 years and forced out by my new boss. My old boss told me that they were looking to get rid of me one way or another. So that makes me retired as of now.

    Congrats on 32 years with the same employer. That was my magic number.. The nice thing is that you have your rental homes to provide an income stream. I'm guessing the State of Indiana provides a nice pension and medical benefits until Medicare kicks in...
