White coated is when the incoming first-year students get presented  their white  laboratory "coat" with their name tag identifying them as a veterinary student. They can ask a mentor to present it to them. So it's an honor to be thought of that way. 
Most likely since you milk cows, raise chickens, and make fancy custom pine  flooring, your white coat might have no openings in the arms and funny straps. ;) Obviously if you stop your ventures  you most likely can find work as a juggler.  Lots of qualifications there.:D :D ;D

This is why I have purposely tempered my business.    I sawmill what and when I want.   Granted, I don't depend on the sawmill business for living income.   That is covered by retirement from my previous day job.   But that's been the plan and business model for the past 15+ years since I started milling.   

I have no employees, and milling is done on my terms and my schedule.   I like it that way.   I have had several opportunities to expand and mill full time.   I did not take any of them.   I advertise, mill and kiln dry.  Last year I bought a new mill and this week I purchased my 2nd Nyle kiln.  It get delivered tomorrow.   I keep busy and now thing are picking up here in my new location after moving.   I plan  to stick with my custom milling and drying and continue to not let it drive me or my schedule.   I like having the extra cash to do things but if I'm idle and have time for other endeavors, that's great also.

If you not happy with what you are doing, then do something else...
