    I was in the US Coast Guard. Now I stay home and run the ranch. For extra cash, I pick up unwanted animals, and retrain them and get then back to health, then I rehome them for a small fee. I also did basic dog obedience training classes at a dog park when I lived near one, but I worked solely for tips and making sure dogs were able to stay in their happy homes.

    Corporate Training Manager in the Banking Industry.

    BS in Biology (Zoology emphasis). Worked as a zookeeper for awhile, then realized I didn't love living paycheck to paycheck.

    My husband is an Environmental Project Manager and between the two of us we make more than enough to live a comfy middle class lifestyle and afford my daughter's horse habit. ;).

    I work at an Insurance Brokers office, I am currently working towards getting my Broker license. My salary is about $36,000 right now, once I get my license it will be more.

    I am also working towards being a certified EC coach.

    Marine Engineer, Army training combined with State university of NY, mostly online or at remote Army education centers. Plus lots of self study and testing, couple marine classes, ship board firefighting etc.
    Marine transportation industry is BOOOMING !, deck and engine, yet I never see it listed in any of the job opportunity articles in the news. Tugboat and shipping companies are screaming for qualified people. Especially Engineering. Coast guard laws have changed and boats getting away with licensed and underliscensed people are getting cracked down on.

    I work doing art restoration. I love my job.

    I have my degree from John Jay College in NYC for Forensic Psychology, but I never pursued anything in that field.

    I am currently at a college taking classes in pastry and culinary arts.

    I left school at 15 and started working with horses. Many years on I am still working with horses. Not many can say that a career of over 55 years they still enjoy their work.
