What I am is a little different. I owned shops for many years. Between A/C and transmissions, seems I could cover the bases on jobs that most techs are ignorant of. Then there's my Rolls-Royce and Bentley certifications. I've stayed on the edge of the business. Then the dynamic changed. Transmission shops then had to do brakes and tuneups to survive. I rolled a lot of shops into the repair end. It was fun, but times have changed. The new stuff isn't fun anymore. Too expensive and complex. We're seeing a declining number of techs in the business. It's not good.
