Name: Ruben Flores
City of residence: Victoria
Current title: Owner of Midnite Rambler Collectibles
First job: I was a watermelon salesman when I was 9 or 10 years old. I sold them door-to-door in San Antonio and I was quite the salesman.
What it taught me: I learned how to deal with the public. It's important to be nice and treat people the way you would want to be treated.
