    B. Lawn mower
    Explanation
    Forrest is financially secure for life after being invested in Apple, indicating that he has a significant amount of wealth.

Additionally, being a football coach would still require some level of compensation. However, working as a lawn mower does not require extensive qualifications and is often a job that people do for free as a hobby or to maintain their own property. Therefore, it is plausible that Forrest would choose to work as a lawn mower for free.
