Robert Steed

Name: Robert Steed

Age: 49

City of residence: Victoria

Current title: Financial adviser with Edward Jones

First job: I was a ranch hand for my family growing up, but my first job away from them was as a carpenter's assistant.

What it taught me: Both jobs really instilled a good work ethic and the value of hard work. The job as carpenter's assistant also taught me that I wanted to go on and earn my college degree.
