Jobs I worked while in HS
I’ve been working since I was 15 flipping pizzas and folding delivery boxes. I was able to help my father during the summers working on movie sets. During school, I worked at night as a waiter in nice restaurants. I liked getting tips and meeting interesting people. (and eating good food for free!)
I was a very active guy in HS. I would usually meet friends after school to play sports or go surfing. I would then have to go work as a waiter at a local restaurant since my family did not have much money, and I wanted a nice car and plenty of cash for fast food stops. Spending time with my family and friends has always been important to me.

Some challenges I had to overcome in my career
Working at a large company can be rewarding, but it has plenty of challenges as well. To be successful at a corporation, you need to be good at working with teams. You have to learn how to trust and delegate tasks and sometimes swallow your pride for the betterment of the team. You have to follow the rules and have the confidence to speak up when someone is doing something you know is wrong.
