• Name: Robby Burdge
• Age: 50
• City of residence: Victoria
• Current title: President of klean corp international
• First job: I had paper routes starting in kindergarten, until I was 12 or 13. I had routes on weekday mornings and evenings and stood on street corners selling papers on Saturday nights and Sunday mornings.
• What it taught me: It gave me a sense of making roll call and accountability. As a kid, I didn't always want to get up in the mornings or go to work after school, but it was a cool opportunity. I learned to count money and items and learned the value of forming relationships in business transactions.
