Work as a farmer
Four of our past presidents worked the land.
While this was more common in the early history of the United States, -- consider Thomas Jefferson's Monticello -- our most recent farming president was Jimmy Carter.
Jimmy Carter grew up on his family's peanut farm in Plains, Georgia, and took over the business in 1953 when his father died.
Here are a few of the other less common backgrounds for our former presidents:
A tailor - Andrew Johnson
An engineer - Herbert Hoover
An actor - Ronald Reagan
