His first paycheck: “My first official paycheck came from a part-time job at a local Renaissance festival. I made $70 dollars a day with a few tips here and there. On top of it being the most money I’d ever had at that point, it was also an incredibly fun and rewarding job that shaped my approach to work from then on.”
