I've always been an ambitions person with a focus on always being better. Even as a kid I was always looking for ways to be independent and resourceful. Please understand this without judgement. Besides the child labor laws were very different when I was a kid. My very first real job was in a record store down the street from my elementary school. I was nine or ten in the fifth grade. I can't remember how I got the job but I loved every minute of it. I sold candy to all my friends after school in the record store. I had my very own section with tables just my height to reach. I had a cigar box to store the money from the sales. I was always paid about two dollars and two of my favorite candies "bit of honey" and a Almond Joy.
