What do/did you do for a living?

With the increasingly high priced items people own and are selling, I'm curious about the line of work people do or have done. I thought my $5k integrated was a massive investment, but seeing users searching for $100k speakers or $75k SET amplifiers has me curious about the varying lines of work people do to afford these items. 
When I was about 12 my dad told me I should become an audio engineer. I didn't think that would be very interesting (Ha!). I ended up in electronics and became a computer tech in 1964. Yeah, they had computers the size of rooms back then. Since then as a contractor I've done programming and systems design for many companies large and small (IBM, Great American, Coca-Cola, H.M. Pittman). I had two computer systems companies and completed the computer part of my career as a middle manager for The Coca-Cola Company. After 40 years, and for the past 17 I have operated a yard maintenance company, from which I am now fully retired at 76. I've scrapped together almost $50,000 to buy my system, accessories and supplies, not counting records.

I am a Independent Financial Advisor and my wife also a music nut is a Banker.  I have really gotten back into the hobby of over the past year.
I sell ice in Nome Alaska.  Things have been slow, but I'm hoping that global warming will be good for the business and I can buy more audio gear.
