Peter was a business man. When you look at his decision to follow Jesus, you see that he had more than one boat. He was the equivalent of today's small chain owner. He employed men and oversaw the day to day operations of his business. Fishing was/is an honorable profession.
We also are told that he had a mother-in-law (Jesus heals her and the whole town's sick people in her house), which meant that he had a wife. Although he left her at home when he first followed Jesus, from I Cor. 9:5 it appears that at one point she traveled with Peter in his ministry. Catholic tradition says she also was martyred for her faith.

In the synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke), Peter was the first disciple of Jesus Christ. In John's Gospel, Andrew and another, unnamed disciple followed Jesus before Peter.

Mark was not an apostle. He was a disciple and writer of one of the gospels. I am not sure about his occupation. He was a disciple of Peter and his interpreter. He wrote down everything that Peter said in reference to the faith.
Yes he was
If you ask who was Jesus best disciple it would be Symon whom he called Peter.
