I have dual degrees in business and design. For several years I sold real estate until my son was born.2.5 years ago I went back to school to study permanent make-up!
I'm finally able to do something artistic and make money at it. Ilive near a pretty wealthy client base so I've been able to keep pretty busy -my work season coincides with my ride season so it's a juggle.
I am a special education teacher at a high school. I do like my work, especially at the school where I am now, but the required paperwork is a very large part of the job that I'm not so thrilled with. I do consider myself very lucky, however, to have work that I generally like, fairly good job security and good benefits.

I didn't check anything off, I'm a self employed "professional" quilter! :-) I make and sell quilts, and I have a large commercial sized machine that I use to do the fancy stitching on others' quilt tops...... love what I do.
Most such lists have agriculture as one option, as it doesn't fit exactly others, being a mix of several.
I am semi-retired now, but a horse trainer/instructor, licensed at some tracks, ran our breeding and training operation, that was part of a larger, diverse business.
Part of what we did was in field testing of pharmaceuticals and biologicals for different companies.
I would say a working ranch/farm manager and wildlife preserve manager, as we also have been a wildlife preserve since the mid 1950's.
I have loved any and all I have ever worked with and on.
Retired now, in my previous life, I was a program administration/product area administrator for government defense and nuclear power plant contracts, moved on to an accounting manager, took a long time off raising my daughter, went back to work as a business manager/marketing manager for a gymnastics center. Throw in working towards a masters in computer science in the middle too.
I'm retired now (downsized to one boarder), was volunteering (full time) with a dog rescue until the drama queens got to me a couple of weeks ago.
For all the cruelty and hardship of our world, we are not mere prisoners of fate. Our actions matter, and can bend history in the direction of justice.

My title is "formulation chemist" but I'm not a Ph.D. (I hate being called a chemist since I don't have the doctorate but that's the title and they won't change it). I work in toxicology R&D. In a nutshell if you need to dose a compound at certain concentrations and route(s) of administration just give it to me, I'll figure out how to do it. My favorite thing to do at work is take insoluble (in water) compounds and figure out how to get them into solutions that can be easily administered IV. Yeah, I'm strange like that.
