I bet that's an awesome job!  For the last months I've been wanting to become a police officer.  Unfortunately the city I live in has one job requirement to become one... you must possess a Criminal Justice or Criminology degree.  That's something I don't have.   :(

Yeah.....being a cop kicks mega @$$!!!  I love it!  I wouldn't want to do anything else.  The job is different every day and that is what I love about it.   Try moving to another city (I know....easier said that done).  But some cities don't require a degree.  You can get that later with tuition assistance from your department.   :)

I work in brodacast television as an Editor.  I also work on feeds coming in from remote locations where we have news crews.

I piece the material together so that it makes sense to the viewer at home.  It can get kind of hectic, like during the war, but it's rewarding in that you're providing a service to the community.

I'm in business for myself, with my girlfriend. I'm an Auto Accessories Recycler.

Basically what I do is make runs to auto salvage yards, run in with a fistfull of money, and walk out with some high dollar parts.

i.e. I invested $100 1 week and made a $600 profit.  ;D

It's alot of fun, it pays all my bills, I set my own hours, I am never late for work, I can;t get fired, and I get to be my own boss!

Gigalo, and Professional Monkey Wrangler.

Which pays better?  What type of schooling or experience is necessary to get into the Monkey Wrangling business?  And is the Gigalo gig more like what was in Richard Gere's American Gigolo movie, or more like SNL's Rob Schneider's Deuce Bigalow flick?

That's very cool Cory!  Wish I could set something up like that...  My job is often not very fun, doesn't pay enough of my bills, often lasts me a good 12+ hours a day, I'm ALWAYS late to work, I can get fired (though I doubt that would happen), and my boss is often a totally reprehensible PRICK!   >:(

Yeah, auto part salvaging is looking mighty fine to me right now too!!!   8)

Cool topic. Always nice to see what other collectors do for a living.

I have a Sub Contracting buisness. I specialize in Epoxy
and Urethane Waterproofing coatings. Mainly Parkades with some Wharehouse work. In the buisness we call it "membrane", hence my user name... ;D

I also dabble in Concrete restoration. We remove old
broken, wornout, concrete from parkades and replace
it with new.  It's a never ending cycle here due to the
Salt used in the winter. It corrodes the concrete in no time.

I've been in this buisness going on 20 years. I'm at the point now that I just supervise my guys and only get in the "dirt" when my knowlege and expertise is needed.
But this still means long days as the working "outdoor"
season here is short so we have to get as much done in a relatively short period of time.

Plus my wife works me like a dog when I'm at home, LOL
