In a great deal of media (movies, television shows, etc), there are people characterized as "fixers". These are folks who do a variety of things, and as Wikipedia suggests, most of them illegal, in the pursuit of "fixing problems". I'm doing some research for a project (literary), and i'd like to know more about these people. How did they get into their "field"? Certainly connections help, but is it basically a business of knowing people? How did your fixer friend get so good at what he does? What made him get into the business (besides the money - which i'd imagine could be better?)
