    Full time mom (some people get paid for childcare...)

    part-time bell choir director and bass player at church (only get paid for the bell choir part but we're working on that...)

    Occasional music transcriber (occasionally there's work...)

    and part-time college student (web development/programming) because my MIS degree is so old and unused that I'm no longer employable. (And so I can revamp the transcribing site so there's more work...)

    Seems like a lot of engineer / scientist type folk. At least more than you'd expect from a normalized sample of the population.

    Doesn't surprise me. I'm an electrical engineer, have spent the last 30+ years in electric power system protection and control. Currently branch manager for a consulting company in that field.

    I'm like the character in Office Space that "takes the requirements from the customer and gives them to the engineers".

    I'm a sous chef. It's kind of contradicting to being a bassist. Cuts and burns on your hands happen all the time. Slicing open the pad of your index on your fret hand 4 hours before a gig is not the ideal playing situation.

  15. I managed a UPS Store in Somerset, KY for 2 years. I handled more amps & basses there, than anywhere else. Overall it was a pretty sweet job.

    Now I'm a Lineman & Airframes Mechanic at W38 in Williamsburg, KY.

    I've also been acquiring gear for musicians at a small finders fee for the past 4 years which makes me an extra $500-600 a month.
