The first one is me starting work at 9years old with my first paper route in the 80s. I had dozens of jobs before university and started my own company at 19. I did whatever I could whether selling roses at the liquor store, being Santa's helper or refereeing flag football I was always working. I worked double time through my teens and 20s then less and less through my 30s and was able to retire in my 40s if I want to. It's an option that has its benefits as the next 40 years in life will hopefully be quite easy and relaxing now.
