Name: George Charkalis

Age: 62

City of residence: Victoria

Current title: Owner of Greek Bros. Steakhouse & Oyster Bar

First job: I had a series of first jobs, bussing tables at my uncle's restaurant, working at a car wash and hitchhiking to caddy at the country club.

What it taught me: I learned money doesn't come easy, especially when you have to hitchhike to work. When I was a caddy, I made $5 a bag for 18 holes.
