How about this! Jerome A. Kessler, M.D left his medical career to start a landscaping business. Then he wrote a book about it! Pretty interesting!

Retired doctor publishes book 'Crazy Like Me' (http://www.sidneyherald.com/articles/2007/04/17/homespun_-_lifestyles/hs01.txt) - Jerome A. Kessler, M.D., has written a book. The back cover provocatively asks: "Why would a doctor give up a lucrative 25-year career to become a landscaper? Read 'Crazy Like Me,' a sentimental tongue-in-cheek novel, to find out. This book contains anecdotes and reflections of a fictional premed student who matures into a 'semi-crazy' retired doctor."

Dr. Kessler was a highly regarded physician who spent 19 years taking care of patients in Sidney, before taking a medical retirement in early 2005. His short novel portrays the life of a small town doctor, who happens to have bipolar disorder, and his transition from life as a busy physician to that of a thoughtful landscaper.
