I am pretty much freelance for a living. I do COmputer support for Windows Based PCs and Laptop, as well and build desktops for people... But given where I live at it is very slow..

I guess It couldnt be even called make a living with how slow business is >.<<br />
I love my job though!

Run an analytics group at an ecommerce company...web analytics, ABN/MV testing, BI, market research.

Gotta love the diversity!

Great job, good life and all that, but....my advice to the "young folk":

Don't worry about the money (at least more than you need to), find what you enjoy, stay with what you enjoy. 30 years of the rat race = a ridiculous waste of time.

If you enjoy the rat race, well...

This! I love working with computers so I decided to follow a path in that field that leads towards lots of money. The issue is the more money you make the longer you are at work and then you become salary and don't get to have overtime pay and your usually are on call 24/7 and projects get huge and complex along with people above you pushing to release things faster and faster. It's a headache and a stressful environment. I should have took a different field in hindsight. Something that I don't sit at a desk for 10 hours a day. I would love to build things.

It is said that if you find something you love to do, you will never work a day in your life.

Unfortunately, not many people can say that they absolutely love their job. I am one of those fortunate few.

I am an electrical designer. I get to design and draw one-lines, schematics, and layouts for the electrical systems for offshore oil rigs. This allows both the technical and artistic sides of my brain to work, as an AutoCAD drawing is not just technical, but an exercise in artistry.

Plus, getting paid $35 an hour doesn't hurt, either...
