What was your first job?
My first job was selling Grit newspapers door to door when I was ten years old. But my first job where I went to work each day was at a concession stand on a beach on a lake. We worked on strict commission. There were days that I only made $1 for the entire day. And, if someone worked with me that day, I had to split it with them. Those days were either rainy or a weekday. If it was not rainy, I could lay out in the sun and read a book all day. Conversely, I could make $300 in a single day if we were busy. We had no cash registers or calculators. All math was done mentally. I worked there (in the summers) from the time I was twelve until I was fifteen.

Favorite thing about your job?
Being around people who share a common direction with me. My co-workers want JDS to exceed customer’s expectations so they will continue the business relationship thus JDS becomes a successful, profitable company.

What motivates you to succeed?
I am very motivated by problem solving. I like the feeling of making things run smoothly.

Who inspires you?
I don't have a single person who inspires me. I am inspired mostly by a person being accomplished at a particular thing especially if they overcame obstacles in the process.

Sometimes I get inspiration from the people I come in contact with. Some people put off such a positive vibe that I want to be positive myself. A good solid compliment can get me through an entire day!
