    Just curious what other industries the part timers are in. Fire fighters and off duty cops seem to be pretty common on here.

    I guess I'll start it off. I'm in college and intern with a M & A firm and have been running my biz since high school part time.

    Manage a ski shop in the winter, and in the summer the shop sells high end patio furniture. Mostly run the delivery side of things, but also sell.

    Building superintendant for a home builder/land developer. Mowing spec homes and model homes for a cheap hourly wage. Also the reason why I started the biz, as well as the housing slump.

    I mow grass for a local LCO. I have a good relationship with the owner...he's helping me a lot in my business and I try to help him out by coming in early, working weekend, wrenching on equipment and trucks for him, etc.
