Margaret’s Message for the Day
Today, I’d love to start a discussion about first jobs. You know, when I look back, some of my earliest jobs were the ones that changed the course of my life.
My time working in a pizza restaurant taught me the value of hard work and helped me to gain my independence. My time working with Elisabeth Kübler-Ross helped me to deal with the loss of my mother and inspired me to write my first book. In fact, ever single job that I had taught me something!
I’d love to hear what your first job was and what it taught you. If your most life-changing experience happened at your 2nd or 3rd job, please share that too!
Let’s get to know each other a little better!
