cwtech, that is about the best advice I have ever heard! That's it in a nutshell, so to speak. I guess you could say that for 22 years I had the best of both worlds. I worked on small engines/lawn and garden equipment for Sears. We had a large shop at the local catalog distribution center. Seldom had to make an outside service call. Sears provided the tools and equipment. When they phased out the shop in 1987 I was making $13.25 an hour plus benefits. I took an early retirement offer in 1990. The problem was, NO small engine repair shop around here paid a decent wage. And many of them had, as you mentioned, those who didn't know or care what they were doing, but they worked cheap. I found work in other fields and spent several years behind the parts counter of an automobile dealership before I retired, but was never able to make more than 2/3 what I made at Sears.
