The first four or five years of my working life (which started during high school) were spent in various jobs including working as: a cashier at a department store; a clerk at a shipping company; an office assistant at Ethan Allen in the sales department; a receptionist, and then a few temporary jobs including a week with Willie Nelson and Miles Davis' manager. 

Then I spent the next 30 years in the telecommunications field - starting as a clerk and working my way up to director.

For 18 years (prior to real estate) I owned a Business Support company and worked right out of my home -- I was part of the Cottage Industry.  In some ways I miss those days -- had hundreds of clients and each one brought with it diversified type of work.  But today, many of those skills have benefited me in Real Estate and I believe is what allowed me to rise from the bottom to the top within the first two years of real estate.
