That maybe true, but commercial beekeeping is not comparable to any of those things, as a matter a fact its so unique i wouldn't compare it to any other business.
How would Barry Know? Is he a commercial bee keeper?
We are not running practices or doing customer service. We are knees in the dirt head in the beehive. over and over and over again.
but you can get really good at math being a commercial beekeeper.
Mechanical aptitude is first in line next to understanding bees to bee successful.
I have almost 4000 hives and one crappy notebook.
