Beekeepers are often naturalists. People who like to be outside. Folks who are, well, folksy. Our point? If it's globe-spanning or even personal power you're seeking, you may be interested in something a little more along the lines of Supreme Court Justice or plumber. (Hey, when people need a plumber, they need a plumber. That's power.)

Then again, you do have a certain amount of power over your bees. Sure, they may run (read: fly) off at any time, die, or even sting you on the nose. But to the right person, there's nothing quite like being able to gather a swarm of 30,000 bees into a box and transport them safely to a new home where they can live their lives doing what they do best. That's a kind of power...isn't it?
