"I got a minimum wage job in a windowless chemistry lab where I had to wear a full-body protection suit and clean glass beakers with acid. It was mind-numbingly boring. It was painful and low-pay. The most important thing I learned was an appreciation for any job that would be fulfilling emotionally. I really wanted a job that had direct positive impact on people's lives and without that, I couldn't be happy." -  Ryan Carson, TreeHouse CEO and Founder

"During high school, I spent my summers as a camp counselor taking a bunch of kids on canoe trips, some as long as 40 days. I learned a lot about teamwork and making the most of limited resources -- only so much can fit into a backpack, and a lot can go wrong when you're out in the backwoods for weeks at a time. I also learned a lot about perseverance and hard work - there are no shortcuts on great journeys.

"My first three 'real' jobs taught me a lot. As a second year university student, I worked with Mezzanine Consulting. I was given tons of autonomy there, and it taught me to figure things out and have confidence. After that, I worked for the photography company Blacks, with John Kelleher. He taught me about what a winning mindset looks like -- about really thinking big and setting huge aspirations. That was a really important influence, and the idea of thinking really big is something I often speak about now. And the job I had before joining my first startup, 1000memories, was at McKinsey. Working in that environment taught me a lot about how to solve problems." -  Mike Katchen, 财富simple CEO and Founder

I learned the importance of attention to detail in a place where I had to make sure I do work well, accurately and quickly. I learned best practices when it came to communicating professionally -- as an investment banker, you're dealing with CEOs, management teams and bosses.

"My first job was at our family furniture store. As a small business, our customers were our most important asset, and this is where I learned the value of putting the customer first. There is nothing more critical in building a successful business than creating long lasting relationships. At my family store, we sent hand-written notes to each customer for feedback on their experience with us. This insight allowed us to make changes that ultimately lead to loyal customers and repeat business. This is absolutely something I have taken with me and putting customers first is cental to what we do at AppDirect." -  Daniel Saks, AppDirect Co-CEO and Founder

"I had a bunch of different jobs when I was growing up (in Queens), but the one that's been the most influential was a warehouse job I had before going to college. Right away, I was put in a management role, and the owner took me under his wing. It wasn't easy. He was stern, and he'd push me to take on new challenges. He'd let me fail at times so I could learn from it, but I'd still have to own that failure. Looking back, that experience prepared me for becoming an entrepreneur, and the 领导 我的经验教训有 - 自主性与责任 - 继续影响我的管理风格。” - 大卫取消,漂移首席执行官兼创始人

"After college, I worked at McKinsey, which is an excellent boot camp to start your career. The level and quality of work we did set the bar for the rest of my career. Details matter and people notice when you care. It's easy to clock in and out, but when you work at an institution like McKinsey, you realize that no one wants to clock out until the work is at a level they're proud to present to a client. We try and instill that in the team at Alfred. Be proud of your work and imagine everything you're doing not only has your name on it, but is also being made public. We encourage everyone to take ownership and pride in everything we do as a team." -  Marcela Sapone, Hello Alfred CEO and Co-founder
