Selling Christmas Trees

By December 21, 2012

Follow me on:

Christmas TreeBrent's first job was selling Christmas trees.   He says "Earning tips was fun - hustling to get to the next customer and their vying for their tip became a competitive event."  It was cold though and sap got over everything.

Candace worked at a real old-fashioned bakery where everything was made from scratch.  She loved her job: "One of the wonderful perks at the bakery was I could eat whatever I wanted. Telling a sixteen year old girl with the biggest sweet tooth in town you're allowed to eat whatever you want was better than given a brand new red convertible automobile!"
