I just had a thought the other day about all the jobs I've had in my life thus far. I love to work. I've been working since I was 14. I never had to but I just enjoyed having the extra money. I liked having more expensive clothes then the basics and I liked having money for lots of extra fun activities with my friends. So in order to have more... I worked. I enjoyed it and it just became a way of life early for me. I still got to all the fun extras like in high school I was a cheerleader and in college I was in a sorority in college but still made time for work. It was just the norm. I thought it would be fun for my own reference and for Ramsey to look back on one day. So here are all the jobs I have had in my life so far by age:

I have a degree in Business management but as you can see my jobs have pretty much been all over the map.  I am so thankful for my experiences for they have led me to where I am now. I so appreciate having my own business, making my own hours, and doing work I truly love. Not sure what the future holds but for now I am exactly where I want to be!!!

I have to say too that I am so thankful to Cope for working so hard so that I do have options. I'm a lucky girl!
