The First Jobs of the World’s Most Successful
Everyone has to start somewhere in life. For some, it’s at the top of the pile, for others it’s at the very bottom of the heap. But, no matter where you start, one thing is for certain, it doesn’t matter where the beginning is, just so long as you get going! Some of the world’s most successful people began in jobs that are far from glamorous. So, never let anybody tell you that flipping burgers, wiping tables, washing cars or that other “menial” job will amount to nothing. Because it’s not about what you do, it’s about how you do it, what you learn from it, and what you do with those lessons as you take the next step in your life. Check out the first jobs of some of the world’s most successful.
