Default Re: What's your "day" job?

I was supposed to be a musician. And I was, for a few years. But I couldn't make enough money, so I hung up the sticks and looked for a job that paid me real money. I bounced around, did this and did that, eventually my older brother got me into his electrical business. A year later, in 1990, he left his business to join the electrical union. At that point I started my own company and took over the business contacts that had given my brother his work. So I've been an electrician for 22.5 years now. That's a long time to do something you really didn't want to do in the first place. Right now I am pretty fed up doing electrical work, but it lets me live where I do, which is awesome, and until my house is paid off in 2014, I will continue to be an electrician. After that I will scale waaaay back and play lots of gigs like I was supposed to do in the first place.
