I am glad my parents made me work when I was young.

August 01, 2010 Why former burger-flippers make great bosses: McDonald's USA chief Jan Fields started out in life as a burger-flipper earning $2.65 an hour -- and she says that helped make her the woman she is today. Just as Warren Buffett started out as a paper boy and Steve Jobs started out as an intern, Fields says that her first job helped teach her basic business lessons that have served her well as she climbed the ladder. "What you enter as is probably not what you ultimately achieve, so learn the core of the business," she says. "The more prepared you are, the more likely you will move up." Read full story here. I read this article and was reminded once again that I should thank my parents for encouraging (demanding) that I work at a young age. My first job was collecting day fees for visitors to our family campground, I was 6.  I went on to lead hayrides, run volleyball tournaments, and clean bathhouses. All those positions locked in a work ethic that I am glad to have.
