Own a small IT consulting firm (me, myself and I). Work for the highest bidder. I have a specialized area I work in so it pays fairly well.

Electronic designer + embedded software + engine control system calibration + emissions testing. Not my day job but I also build (and occasionally repair) condensor microphone capsules.

Im a full time audio engineering student, freelance Engine Management Tuner mostly in the higher end auto market, Test Driver for a few Rally teams that i also tune for, and i cook pizza at a bar to keep the roof over my head while finishing school. Hoping to land a job working video post production working in sound design.

I had a Lancer Evo VIII in my parking garage for 3 weeks, street legal in Canada only because its a car registered out of Maine. My landlord must think im a car thief or something, i had a Skyline GT-R32, The Evo VIII, and STi coming and going this summer. And i pay my rent in cash always on time.

Music and Auto's are the loves of my life....... no wonder why im single.....

Make a little bit of money writing songs and scoring video games, but it'll take a lot more to quit my day job.

Pro = poor.
Part Time = comparatively rich, and much more sane.

Note: I'm poor. You sound like you might be a pro too!

cool....i didn't realize i was considered "pro".... ha ha. i thought i was semi-retired after coming off the road.... but my "real" job is stay at home dad. you know its no easy task editing drum tracks when your kids are screaming at you....clients are easy when you can make a 6 month old happy.
Word.

Once again, fulltime dad, as well as PT musician/eng/production, mostly for broadcast and/or indie video. No bands have any money to record anymore...

Talk about poor - can't wait for the wife to finish med school!

Aerospace software. I did a band gig back in the '80s. Not surprisingly, aerospace pays better.
