• Name: Canyon Shackelford
• Age: 21
• City of residence: Victoria
• Current title: Sales manager at AutoZone
• First job: I worked as a bagger at the H-E-B in Port Lavaca.
• What it taught me: I learned a good work ethic but customer service was the main thing. I also learned the joy of making money. I'm one of the few people these days who enjoy earning money. A lot of people these days just want it given to them.
