What do you do for a living

I'm wondering if Sailboat people evenly represent most employment options or if it attracts people in some jobs more than others.
Of course sailnet members are just a subset of all sailors but it might be interesting.
It does not look like I can edit a poll once started so if I miss your profession, for example I just notice I missed lawyer just put in in a message if you don't mind. Maybe a moderator can add jobs to the pole as they come up.
I know this may be too personal for some. If so I apologize just ignore it.

None of the above. Well, okay, I guess i could massage my ego and answer "management," but being self-employed my workforce is small (me), difficult to manage, insubordinate, and impossible to terminate.
Damn, I sound like I have unionized myself.

As soon as I posted I knew I would miss about half of the jobs out there. I thought I could edit the poll just like a comment but no joy.

O darn - there's no category for me. I don't make a living anymore. I gave up trying. Oh well.

I am hoping to be a professional 'flaneur' in the next year or two but stuck in my vote regardless for the time being.

Seeing that I'm an instructor of marine science. That would put me in tech. & Management. And when I worked offshore it would have been the same.

I checked "technology" because it was the closest thing I could come to in the list.

I am a Marine Biologist with a major Northeastern Ivy-League University; studying whales and marine mammals.
