I have always been obsessed with working. My very first job was “Mother’s Helper” for my neighbor at age 9 and I just started collecting hustles from there. Unlike most young entrepreneurs, I wasn’t really in it for the money. I liked making money, but I viewed it as buying my independence to shop and travel where I pleased. I mostly liked collecting experiences, though, and I racked up quite a few:

  1. Mother’s helper/Babysitter (through most of middle school and high school)
  2. Face-painting/Nail painting at children’s birthday parties
  3. Cat-sitter
  4. Referee for Lincroft Soccer

  6. Closet cleaner (for a hoarder – my job was literally never done)
  7. Secretary at a law office
  8. Marketing & box office sales for a local theatre
  9. Hype girl for a DJ – basically, got paid to do the electric slide at Bar Mitzvahs
  10. Salesgirl at Victoria’s Secret
  11. Bank Teller

  14. Admin/coffee maker at Penn English Language Center
