A Perspective, not sure "professional" should only be considered by income you generate. I spent 11 years of my life playing in a symphony and chamber groups for a liviing, today I do not Yet, my skill playing music skill are still a professional level. Case n point, many music groups make money playing sub-standard music out of tune, really can't keep rhythm, generally without skill yet, they make money. So that metric is a bit misleading, Imho ... just sayin.
Being a "pro" doesnt mean youre good at it, just that people are willing to pay you to do whatever it is you do.

I'm a pretty basic hobbyist. Enjoy spending the time but the body is breaking down so I only spend a few hours a week in the shop. Used to make things to donate to Special Olympics and the Fragile X Foundation craft fairs and such.

I actually can say all three. I enjoy what I do on all fronts. Even when I’m upset about something on a project, I get joy out of working through it and making it right.
