Hard work is hard work, no matter the job.
Distinguished chefs, nurses on the frontlines and account executives all started somewhere. Everyone always remembers their first job, as it’s a huge milestone in someone’s life beginning to work and earn money, and forging their own path. It doesn’t matter if you’re a cleaner, secretary or CEO -- hard work should never be underestimated. We asked people what life lessons stuck with them from their very first job. For many, reflecting on what they thought was insignificant at the time still has a big impact on them today. Their stories and lessons shared are a reflection of character, personal values, and passion for their career...whatever it may be.
