I sell defective used cars and life insurance...and I'm a bookie on the side. Great business model. I've made a fortune.

Actually, I'm an ex-attorney.

I put down Management but I'm really a retired Canadian Navy officer running my own business at 71. Gotta keep the juices flowing. I had a stress test today and passed with flying colours.
