Im kind of curious to see what everyone on here does for a living to be able to afford some of these amazing boats...specifically anyone in the medical field? (i.e. doctors, chiropractors, pts) bc im in chiro school right now and after paying I finish paying off massive student loans it would be a little nice to know I might be able to afford a new boat someday haha

You should more than easily be able to afford most of the boats being a Chiropractor, given you have your own practice.

I am in Real Estate. Big gains but also big losses. I am fortunate to have sold all of my investments in early 08 and cashed out. I am just coasting right now. With everything paid for I can do that. I am just planning a strategy for the next upswing.

I work for my families business. I am the third generation of our family to work there. We are a warehouse distributor for Heavy-Duty, Industrial and Marine 12V charging/starting systems. Our area of expertise is Alternators, starters, batteries and ignition. We also carry a few of the OEM gauge/sender brands, wix filters, wiper blades and a few other products. We actually carry a lot of the senders, pressure/temp switches, filters, alternators and starters that are on almost all wake boats.

I actually don't even have a boat of my own right now. I just use my dad's 83 MC or his 42 Ocean Alexander. I really like not having a 300-500 dollar a month payment.

"If anyone makes a lot of money without stress and long hours I would like to know"

What's alot of money? I get half day fridays and have very little stress in my job. I don't make $250k/year, but I do well enough.

IMO, the company you work for has alot to do with your stress level.

Also , the amout of $$ you deal with. I'm in a postion to were I don't really waste my time on agreements less than $5MM. The downside is my job distorts my view of money. At work, $50-100k is not that much money.

I do Marketing and PR officially,

but also do side jobs in networking, landscaping, graphic design, web design, web development, flash development, and anything else I can do to make a couple extra dollars to survive..

I don't own a boat... nor have I ever.. but I love everything about boating and wake-boarding. So, i just sit on the sidelines and watch till my day comes.. haha

I too had to let my first home go (i got it at age 22, and am now 25) so I have no chance of getting approved for a boat loan *sigh*

TJ - Relax pal.

I too work for Cisco and was wondering what divisions are located in AR or if he works remote. Cisco is a global company therefore I am never surprised by where people work.

Clearly I don't find it hard to believe.

I would recommend, TJ, that you can focus on things you can control or influence and not worry about reading tone into others posts.

Tried being a gigolo. Never made a dime. Go figure.

Alcohol tester for many years now and doing quite well at it. Does not pay anything though.

Retired cop (medical retirement after 17 years). Still pays me pretty well.

Run my own mobile detailing company. Work is really slow but OK with me. Hard work, and I'm old

Done security management off and on over the past few years too.

Future lotto winner (fingers crossed)

Not sure what I want to do when I grow up.
