Did you go through hell before doing what you love?

There’s a hashtag/question making its rounds on Facebook and Twitter: #FirstSevenJobs. Obviously you list your work history, which for most people started out as inexperienced teenagers. Some people had really interesting jobs before starting their chosen careers. Many of us started out in retail or hospitality. Did you sling burgers or mow lawns then move on to something totally unrelated? Job hopping is easy when you are young and before you build your relevant resume. Check out the most entertaining #FirstSevenJobs as well as some from celebrities.
