My first job

I've been many things in my young life.
Popcorn popper. Waitress. Journalist.
But my very first gig included working for myself.
Heavily influenced by my Girl Scout activities and a high tolerance for creativity,
I owned my own jewelry "business" when I was in the third grade.
Bracelets, rings, necklaces; you name it, I made it.
Now, I don't remember exactly how much I charged my classmates, but I was getting paid for a child. LOL.
After a while, things got so good that it became too much for me to handle by myself so I "went out of business."
But I loved the feeling of being self-employed and doing something that I loved.
What was your very first job?? Did you like or love it?
