I started out as a military brat, we moved around a lot. I enrolled in so many different schools its hard to keep count. So I have a varied education through grade 12. I took a few quarters of college hear and there but I learned early that I could earn money by doing things folks needed done. I pitched hay, I worked tobacco, worked with cattle and hogs, I was a grounds keeper for a doctor, learned to almost fly a helicopter there. Delivered flowers, people as a courtesy car driver, I was an EMT, worked in 3 states doing that.

When I realized I was ready for a change I moved north and hung drywall for awhile and hung out in the contruction pools for events on the weekends and made pretty good money. But, running those handtools took their toll and the doctor recommended a change of venue work wise.

That's where I learned how to really get to know people fast and build a relationship. I worked for a Safe Drivers insurance company doing door to door sales. The supervisor would drop us off in designated spots and pick us up at noon and go to lunch. At lunch we went over sales totals. If you sold something he bought lunch. If you did'nt you had to pay.
