My first job was cleaning bathrooms in a warehouse. It was something my parents thought would make me a better person. It didn’t. I was alone every day on the job and all it did was make me wonder why they had not provided me with a job that would give me some mentor-ship.
No, it didn’t teach me the value of hard work. And no it didn’t teach me that I didn’t want that job when I grew up because who would ever want that job? It taught me that my parents didn’t know how to be leaders.
That’s okay, because you don’t know what you don’t know, but it was many struggles, obstacles, and ditches later until I actually met Zig Ziglar, CEO Herb Baum, Tony Jeary, and CEO Lamar Smith, and found my first mentors.
I didn’t even become a mentor until I became a CEO. What was your first job?
Look how far you’ve come!
