The word "professional" kinda has a double meaning.

There's the standard definition:

(of a person) engaged in a specified activity as one's main paid occupation rather than as a pastime.

Which basically means "it's my job".

But some people also use it to quantify skill. In that case "being a professional" means "being good at it".
