I'd like to open a prototyping shop. Tell us what you need and we will design it and make a few prototypes or do a small production run.

Well, I gotta tell you, what you WANT to be and what you end up BEING are often very different things. I wanted to design electronics. Studied for it even. Then found out it bored me to tears. So I used that knowledge to repair electronic equipment and worked into managing a retail electronic chain. When that went away I got into manufacturing. Then I got into construction and opened my pwn buisness. Ran that until I sold it and went to work for the people who bought it. They ran it into the ground and now I'm studying for my, what, fourth or fifth career?? Medical field this time, starting as a radiographer with the intent to end up being an RA.
So the moral is, Ya just never know what you'll "be when you grow up".

Oh, one last thing
If you turn your hobby into work then that's exactly what it will be, WORK. I guarentee that 90% of the people who turn a hobby into work no longer enjoy the hobby as such.
One of the things I love is boating and jet skies. I actually got very good at working on pwc's. So much so that people were bringing their stuff to me. It got so bad that I hated even putting mine in the water when we went to the lake house. I quit working on them but still don't put mine in the water as much as I used to.

I know somebody that works for Traxxas, they love it there, they're a machinist.My dad's business partner grew up with the ceo at Traxxas, was best friends with 'em untill they go out a high school, then they never spoke again for years.Now they both own companies (i guess Garland has some good schools) Mike owns [link=http://traxxas.com/]Traxxas[/link] and Richard, (the guy I know), owns a place called [link=http://presswerx.com/]Presswerx[/link]...Traxxas is a pretty nice place to work actually. Air-conditioned shop, smoke-free, good pay, good hours, that's how the place started and thats how they say it'll always stay...

I originally wanted to go into biotech, but I ended up doing art dealing - easier, more fun, and more money

It's pretty simple. I work for a company that buys fine art at auction, and I help sell it to private collectors for profit. The challenge comes from being able to market the merchandise very well, and convince people to buy. We also work closely with artists to buy works at lower prices.

Well, I'm 64 now. When I became an adult, I became an electrical engineer. BUT, who ever said that I wanted to grow up.
