Robert Rodriguez

Name: Robert Rodriguez

Age: 46

City of residence: Victoria

Current title: Co-owner of Robert's Eatery & Bakeshop

First job: My first job was working on the family farm, but my first "real" job was at Ramsey's Restaurant when I was in seventh grade.

What it taught me: I kept $20 of each paycheck but gave the rest to my grandparents to help the family. I learned that family is one of the most important priorities in life. I also learned the value of being trustworthy, on time and presenting myself well while on the job.
