hrmmm let me see.
My dad was a watchmaker / jeweler so I did some of that when I was a little kid into my teens.
Then during high school I ran a printing press and learned that industry as well as some design till somewhere in my mid twenties.
Also during my late teens early twenties I was a licensed security for a company that did security at baseball/football/basketball games and concerts.
I was one of the yellow shirts you see at games.
Got to see Michael Jordan up close. They put me to guard the locker room entrance at Heat games.
In my late twenties I went back into the watch industry and worked for a watch company.
At the same time I learned how to use photoshop and began making website.
In my late twenties I got a job with an internet company.
Learned some backend programming and sql. all Lamp.
About 4 years ago switched jobs and learned the microsoft end of the programming spectrum and have been doing this since.
