The first job of 12 iconic leaders

You may not realise it, but your first job is important. Not only can a part-time job help you save towards your dreams, but it can also teach you valuable lessons about the value of money, which means you’re more likely to make smart moves later on in your career, such as switching your business electricity to save money.

It doesn’t matter where you start, the important thing is that you begin on a journey to success early on with all the right lessons learnt. Below we take a look at how some of the planet’s most iconic business leaders began their careers, and what lessons their first jobs taught them to help them achieve success in their later lives.
