Life Lessons I Learned From My 1st Job

What was your first job and what #LifeLessons did it teach you?


I don't know if you know this about me....but...my very first job was sweeping floors at Electrician On Call which is owned by my mom & dad. I earned $2 a day and a Frappuccino from #Starbucks in exchange to sweep all the dust from materials and foot traffic...


So after school and in between basketball practice, I swept the floors...I swept at the office...I swept at the warehouse...I swept the floor at storage units...I was Chief Sweeper Upper!



Did I love to sweep? Nope!


Did I have fun sweeping? Nope!


Could I've been spending my time doing other stuff? Yup!


But... the reason I swept the floors with so much pride was because of my dad.....

...so I had to wait for him to freshen up before he could give me a big hug & kiss! So I would get really excited, just for him to remind me that I had to wait for him...


I was always excited to see him...but disappointed that I had to wait again...but finally, when my dad was ready, I would tell him,
