What do you do for a living? I saw in various threads that some people here are electricians, roofers, mechanics, students, etc. To start with, I do repairs on electrical, plumbing, appliances, locks, some carpentry, and cars. Some people here just work on cars as a hobby, and give every repair out. They ask questions to the knowledgeable people on this forum before they have their repairs done by a shop, so that they have an understanding of what they are paying for. This minimizes the chances of getting ripped off. Just look at the amount of people that went to a shop for a small transmission repair, and the shops told them that they needed a new transmission for $3-$4K!

Juvenile Contract Parole Supervisor for the Texas Youth Commission. Basically, I supervise juvenile probation officers, who contract with our Agency, to supervise our parolees in rural areas where we don't have a district office. Right now I supervise 17 officers who cover 75 counties. The age range of our "kids" is 10 yoa up to 21 yoa.

What I actually do to make a living in a small town is "Technology Support". Basically, people pay me to do things they could probably do themselves if they would just freaking press F1 once in a while :).
