Many different Presidents had done their own things before they became President. Please specify the president.

If speaking of Nelson Mandela from South Africa, he was a political prisoner in jail before he became the President. If speaking of Paul Biya in Cameroon, he was the Prime Minister before he became the President.
Barack Obama is an American politician. He was an Illinois state senator and then a US senator before he was elected president. But if you are asking what his business was before he became a politician, he was not a businessman; he was a lawyer and an advocate for the poor. (Interestingly, his wife Michelle, also a lawyer, became a professional fundraiser in Chicago before her husband was president, and by all accounts, she was a very successful hospital administrator and businesswoman.)

George Washington was a planter, a surveyor, and general of the army before he became president.
