Metro: What was your first job, and what did you learn from it that you are still using today?
“My first job was working at an arts supply store. (I took away) that I should never work in any environment in which there is a cash register. It was a disaster. I was punching in cheque numbers as cash received so I was owing people $1.3 million in change. It was awful.”
