What was your first job, and what did you learn from it that you are still using today?


"My first job was delivering newspapers and it taught me that getting things done on time is my responsibility — that no one else can do it for me. This lesson comes in handy when I have deadlines for my advice columns and articles — I am the only one who can get them done on time as no one can write for me."
